About 1,000 people are known to have been killed by Hurricane Matthew in Haiti, with aid officials saying up to 90% of some areas have been destroyed. The World Health Organization is now sending a million cholera vaccine doses to Haiti, amid concerns over the rising number of cases in the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew.
Artists for Peace and Justice (APJ) is a non-profit organization that encourages peace and social justice and addresses issues of poverty around the world. Their immediate goal is to serve the poorest communities in Haiti with programs in education, healthcare, and dignity through the arts. They are committed to long-term, sustainable development in direct partnership with the Haitian people. Their model is simple: They believe in empowering local communities, fostering economic growth, and the power of education to change a nation. Luckily their students, staff and schools are all safe, but much work needs to be done in the communities worst affected by the hurricane.
