In response to the devastation caused by the 7.2-magnitude earthquake that struck Haiti on 14 August 2021, the Singapore Red Cross (SRC) has launched a public appeal to support the affected and vulnerable communities. Working closely with the International Federation of Red Cross Red and Crescent Societies (IFRC) and the Red Cross Red Crescent Movement Partners, the aid will be channeled towards emergency healthcare, first-aid for the injured, food assistance and shelter for those who have lost their homes after the earthquake.
Mr Benjamin William, Secretary General and CEO of Singapore Red Cross, said, "Haiti is at the start of hurricane season, which means the likelihood of being impacted by another storm is very high, and the communities will need all the help they can get. We can expect further damage to infrastructure and more fatalities. Our priority is to support the efforts of the Haiti Red Cross Society and to provide them with resources that can help expand their outreach to communities in need."
Details on the public appeal are available on redcross.sg.
