Working With Partners in Haiti
The American Red Cross is both a funder and an implementer. Since the earthquake struck in January 2010, we have funded more than 50 partner organizations to help Haitians recover and rebuild. Working with other organizations enables us to extend our reach and leverage the capacity of partners with specialties on the ground. By partnering, we avoid duplication of efforts and ensure gaps are covered. Small community based organizations, large international non-profits, and United Nations partners each bring targeted skills or offer access to the most vulnerable people that one single organization cannot provide alone.
