We are calling for donations to help cover the cost of water treatment products, which is urgently needed in Haiti following Hurricane Matthew – the most
powerful Caribbean storm in a decade.
It has had a devastating effect upon Haiti and its people, with a rising death toll and 80% of buildings destroyed. According to the UN Office for the
Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs there are an estimated 350,000 people in need of assistance.
The extremely poor sanitation system in place has been totally overwhelmed by flooding. A cholera epidemic spread by contaminated water has already killed
6,000 people in the last 6 years,
since the earthquake hit Haiti in 2010. Members of Lions Clubs of the British Isles and Ireland are coordinating with our Lions Clubs International Foundation
and it has been agreed to supply water treatment equipment directly to help the people of Haiti. Clean water is one of their greatest needs. Please
consider making a donation to our International Disaster Fund in aid of Haiti.
