Video: Supporting survivors of gender-based and sexual violence after Hurricane Matthew
Worldwide, the number of women and girls who suffer gender-based and sexual violence triples after natural disasters.
MCC works with Solidarity Fanm Ayisyèn (Solidarity of Haitian Women, or SOFA), Haiti’s leading women’s rights organization, to help women displaced or put in vulnerable situations because of Hurricane Matthew, the hurricane that struck this Caribbean nation in the fall of 2016.
MCC-supported projects have provided multifaceted psychosocial services to 450 Haitian women and girls since the disaster. Read more about this work.
In 2018, MCC celebrates 60 years of work with our Haitian partners.
