On October 4, 2016, Hurricane Matthew tore through Haiti, Jamaica, Cuba and the Dominican Republic, affecting over 1.24 million people in Haiti alone. From the last update, Matthew has killed nearly 900 people in Haiti, with death tolls expected to greatly increase as starvation and cholera (waterborne disease) becomes more prevalent.
On November 13th, friends and volunteers of HUM Canada will join together and raise money to the Canadian Red Cross in dispatching relief supplies from Mississauga Ontario to support emergency relief operations in Haiti. Proceeds of the bowling event will go directly to the Canadian Red Cross.
The relief supplies will be distributed by the Haitian Red Cross Society, to help fund relief supplies such as temporary shelters, food, clean water, and basic household items such as kitchen sets and hygiene kits.
