About the Earthquake
On the morning of August 14th, a 7.2 magnitude earthquake hit 4 miles from L’Asile, Haiti – a city with a population of roughly 40,000. The damage was catastrophic destroying multiple buildings including churches, hotels, and apartment buildings leaving thousands homeless. The event left an estimated 650,000 people in need of assistance on the Tiburon Peninsula. More than 2,200 people have died and some 12,200 people were injured in the hardest-hit areas of Grand’Anse, Nippes and Sud.

These have included tents, tarps, PPE, beverages, non-perishable foods, hygiene products and other basic goods. Shipping is costly and final mile distribution is fraught with dangerous and challenging obstacles, but Good360 and our partners are in for the long haul.
