Haiti Refugee Crisis

 

Since mid-June 2015, Heart to Heart International (HHI) has been responding to the crisis at the border between Haiti and the Dominican Republic, providing medical care, food and aid for more than one thousand refugees.  These men, women and children have filled makeshift camps, fleeing the political winds in the Dominican Republic and the possibility of government sanctioned deportations.  

 The numbers vary, but as of this writing, approximately 40,000 people have either left on their own or were forced to cross the border into Haiti.  And approximately 1,100 of these refugees sought shelter and aid in a region where Heart to Heart International normally operates – Southeast Haiti.  This is the same region of Haiti where HHI runs mobile health clinics and works with partners like BD to train village healthcare workers.
