So far Tropical Storm Isaac has claimed 19 lives in Haiti and 2 lives in the Dominican Republic. The storm forced 30,000 people to evacuate their homes. Some of our Haitian partners have begun to report extreme damage to their homes and livelihoods particularly for those internally displaced living in tents and shelters.
