Haiti Survivors Need Our Help – ACT NOW!

The horrific earthquake in Haiti has put into motion an international wave of aid and volunteerism in an effort to help the people of the Western Hemisphere’s poorest nation. To me, this immediate reaction to mass devastation proves that when disaster strikes, communities are able to come together to help those most in need. And the community of St. Vincent de Paul is no different. We are here to be a part of the solution.

Our National President Joseph D. Flannigan has called upon the 120,000 volunteer members of the Society in the United States, as well as to the general public, to provide assistance for the people of Haiti. The Society has a permanent presence in Haiti and is currently collecting donations that will be sent directly to help the survivors of the earthquake.

As Roger Playwin, national executive director of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul USA, stated, “The Society of St. Vincent de Paul makes no distinctions in service to the victims of disaster. We address their needs, whatever they may be, and we keep on addressing them.”

Now more than ever, these men, women and children are in dire need. If you wish to help, contributions for Haiti disaster relief and recovery can be made online by clicking here, or you can mail donations to:
