Haiti – one year after

On 12th January 2010, an earthquake of 7.3-magnitude struck Haiti. The capital Port-au-Prince was devastated, as were several other towns in the country.

MSF received massive financial support for the Haiti emergency from hundreds of thousands of donors around the world. By the end of 2010, MSF has estimated it will have spent all of the €104 million2 ($138 million) donated by private supporters for Haiti.

MSF estimates that it will have spent a total of €94 million ($124 million) on the earthquake relief effort in 2010. The remaining private restricted funds raised for Haiti (approximately €10 million or $13.2 million) will have been used to mobilise MSF’s cholera response.

As of 31st October, MSF had spent 76 percent—some €79 million ($104 million)—of these restricted funds in the first 10 months following the disaster.
