In disaster areas children with disabilities are the first victims. Child-Help will start additional support activities for our children in disaster areas where our partners our active. For instance, in 2010, after Haiti was hit by an earthquake, the CURE International hospital in the Dominican Republic started a satellite in this neighbouring country. In solidarity with the victims of the disaster Child-Help decided to support the CURE hospital in Haiti.
In 2015 Child-Help provided extra funds and medical material for Nepal. Dr. Susil of Kathmandu was very greatful for this support, which enabled him to perform the necessary surgeries after the two severe earthquakes in Nepal.
In Mozambique, we contributed to the reconstruction of the hospital after cyclone Idai hit the country in 2019 and wreaked havoc.
