Dominican Republic partner offers unprecedented help to Haitians

January 2011

Alongside the carnage and horror of Haiti’s earthquake on 12 January 2010, there came brighter moments of hope.

One of these was the way in which Haiti’s neighbour, the Dominican Republic, responded to the needs of Haitians affected by the devastating quake.

Haiti and Dominican Republic share a long and bloody history of mistrust and prejudice. Despite this, Dominicans flooded into Haiti after the earthquake, helping pull people from the rubble and providing food and tents to those who had lost everything.

This photogallery tells the story of  the work of our Dominican Republic partner SSID, that  has been working in two settlement camps in Haiti since the earthquake.
