V-Day Initiates Haiti Rescue Fund, Preparing To Help Our Sisters On The Ground
V-Day is trying to reach our sisters in Port au Prince who run the V-Day Haiti Sorority Safe House, which provides shelter to women survivors of violence and their children, as well as psychological, legal and medical support. While we have not been able to reach the staff at the Safe House, it is clear that increased help will be needed for women survivors of violence in the aftermath of the earthquake. Reports state that over 50,000 lives have been lost, and that Port Au Prince has been "flattened."
To respond to this devastating natural disaster, V-Day is immediately initiating the V-Day Haiti Rescue Fund for the Safe House and community of women it serves. We urge you to support this effort and give generously. At this critical time, we cannot forget the women and girls of Haiti - women who already suffer some of the worst poverty and gender-based-violence in the world.
