The Humanitarian Response Fund (earlier called Emergency Response Fund) mechanism was introduced in Indonesia in 2001 to address emergency needs, by providing humanitarian NGOs, including national NGOs, with a rapid and flexible funding mechanism to meet short-term emergency priorities in vulnerable communities. Between 2001 and 2004, the Fund was mainly used to support various emergency response projects in post-conflict areas in Aceh, Maluku, North Maluku, Central Sulawesi and West Kalimantan provinces.

Le 12 janvier 2010, un séisme de magnitude 7 sur l'échelle de Richter frappait l'île d'Haïti. Cette catastrophe fut d'une ampleur sans précédent à l'échelle d'un seul et même pays. Elle se solda par 220.000 morts et plus de 300.000 blessés, laissant aussi près de 2 millions de personnes sans abri.
Le bilan matériel était impressionnant: 70% des bâtiments détruits, 19 millions de mètres cubes de gravats.
PORT-AU-PRINCE (Jan. 12, 2015) — Five years after a deadly earthquake left an already impoverished nation in complete devastation, the rebuilding effort in Haiti has made significant progress, even as the disaster-prone country continues to face serious challenges. To help build back a more resilient Haiti, CARE continues to partner with local organizations, government agencies and individual Haitians to increase the nation’s emergency preparedness and strengthen the most vulnerable communities.

An outpouring of generosity by Catholics worldwide meant that Caritas could both respond to immediate needs and rebuild for the long term. On the fifth anniversary of the earthquake, here’s a look at just some of what Caritas accomplished.
Five years after the devastating Haiti earthquake killed more than 220,000 people, close to 1.4 million out of the 1.5 million displaced are no longer living in makeshift camps.
However far too many Haitians continue to live with in the aftermath of the unprecedented disaster. Last September more than 85,000 people were still living in 123 camps, many facing the risk of eviction.
Tragically Haiti remains one of the most unequal countries in the world with the richest one percent owning the same wealth as 45 percent of the poorest population.
On 12 January 2010, a massive earthquake hit Haiti’s capital Port-au-Prince, killing 220,000 people, injuring 300,000 and severely damaging great swaths of the city. While enormous challenges remain as the country continues its recovery, Oxfam is committed to helping Haitians and their government to build a stronger, more resilient nation.
A message from Haiti
In 2008, on my first visit to Haiti for hurricane relief work, I remember traveling from the airport to the Save the Children office and seeing the narrow roads, the congestion, the development challenges, and the houses perched perilously on the hillsides. I said to myself “I hope there is never a major earthquake.” I could never have known that I’d be back as Country Director in 2014, nearly five years after that unthinkable event actually happened.
Il y a cinq ans tout juste, Haïti fut frappé par un séisme d’une puissance sans précédent, faisant 250’000 morts et 300’000 blessés. Une catastrophe d’autant plus cruelle pour une population déjà fragilisée. Terre des hommes, alors présente sur le terrain au travers de projets de santé et nutrition, s’apprêtait à mener sa plus grande intervention d’urgence.
