The IRC is supporting Haiti's reconstruction through clean water provision, disease prevention efforts and family reunification.
Our economic recovery programmes are helping people who have lost homes and businesses earn a living.
With clean water in short supply following the earthquake the IRC quickly established water supplies to displaced people.
By placing children and women at the centre of our work in Haiti we are able to support particularly vulnerable groups.
We help children who have been separated from their families, keeping them safe and working to reunite them.
Within hours of the devastating January 2010 earthquake, the International Rescue Committee sent a team to Haiti to assess the critical needs of survivors, provide clean water, sanitation and health care, and address the particular needs of women and girls.
As the country slowly recovers and rebuilds, the IRC continues to work in camps and neighborhoods that lack basic services, assisting Haitians who are struggling to get by and helping them weather new disasters such as Hurricane Sandy.
