You helped rape survivors find justice, and control cholera in Haiti

  • EOYReport-Haiti 2.jpgTo date, more than 4,000 rape survivors in Port-au-Prince displacement camps are recovering from their trauma and looking to the future, thanks to the medical and legal aid,counseling, and other services that would not exist without your generosity.
  • Awareness training for Haitian police is already changing callous and degrading attitudes toward rape survivors. Thanks to you, police officers are now required to alert our sister organization whenever a woman comes to report a rape. One of our partners will now be at the side of every rape survivor to offer support and vital recovery services you make possible. What a victory for justice!
  • This year, floods in Haiti brought deadly cholera, which can drain away life in hours. Your quick response allowed MADRE to provide urgent care by distributing emergency kits to treat a steady stream of sick people who would not have lived long enough to reach a hospital.  Women lined up by the hundreds for water purification kits to prevent illness. Without your caring, many would not be alive today.
  • Leadership in our amazing protection and empowerment campaign in Haiti has earned Malya Villard-Appolon, of our sister organization, a place as a finalist in this year’s prestigious CNN Heroes Award.  Congratulations to you for helping to provide the backing that empowers Malya’s heroism.
