On August 14, Haiti was hit by a deadly 7.2 magnitude earthquake that affected over 800,000 people in its southwestern peninsula, killing thousands and leaving tens of thousands more displaced. Days later, the country was struck by tropical storm Grace, causing flooding in the earthquake-affected areas and exacerbating the damage and suffering. Amidst the chaos, gang violence has drastically increased in the Port-au-Prince metropolitan area, displacing some 19,000 people. These incidents are unfolding even as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to strain the health system and other infrastructures. Children have been impacted the most. Hundreds of schools were destroyed and thousands of children cannot go to school. Currently, there are 5000 children on Mission of Hope’s list waiting for school sponsorship.
