Bring A Coin For Haiti

Hurricane Matthew has destroyed homes and schools in Haiti. Conditions in evacuation shelters are very poor in some of the worst affected areas.

There is no water, electricity and very little food. We are expecting the impact on people to worsen as the storm continues.

Please hold a Bring A Coin For Haiti collection at your school this week and help our response on the ground.

You can download our free primary and secondary assemblies to help explain Hurricane Matthew to your pupils, and the money you raise from your collection will help those affected by the devastation.

Why does ActionAid exist?

 Millions of children in countries all around the world live in poverty. And more than one billion people, mostly women and girls, lack a basic education – that means often they don’t get the chance to go to school and they never learn to read and write.

At ActionAid we think that every child has the right to food, shelter, basic healthcare and free, quality education, wherever they live in the world.

  • 1.2 billion people have to survive 
on less than £1 a day

  • 750 million people don't have clean drinking water

  • 57 million children aged 5 - 11 years old do not go to school

  • 68 million children have to go to school hungry

What does ActionAid do?

 ActionAid helps people in their communities work together to solve their problems. We work in countries in Africa, Asia and Central and South America. Most of the people who organise and do ActionAid’s work in these countries are local people, so they’re in the best position to tell us what they want and need.

We listen first and then work with the people whose lives are held back by poverty so they have a voice and are involved in the decisions that affect their lives.
