When <strong>CORE</strong> jumped into the unknown space<br />

of testing in the beginning of the COVID-19<br />

pandemic, it was with the intention of providing<br />

this life-saving essential service for a few months.<br />

As time progressed, it was apparent that <strong>CORE</strong>’s<br />

COVID-19 relief could not stop, nor delay but<br />

instead expand and rapidly evolve to provide<br />

contact tracing, resource coordination, isolation<br />

shelters, and cash cards to mothers. Soon, we<br />

found ourselves providing the highest number of<br />

tests and vaccines at the largest testing site in the<br />

world at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles.<br />

In continued response to the COVID-19 pandemic,<br />

we furthered mobilization efforts in communities<br />

alongside local partners in 10 U.S. states and in<br />

Haiti, Brazil, and India. In <strong>2021</strong> alone, our staff<br />

administered nearly 2 million tests and 2.8 million<br />

vaccines and provided over 1,000 households with<br />

resource coordination. We listened, learned, and<br />

broadened our COVID-19 relief program to equip<br />

marginalized and vulnerable communities with the<br />

resources needed to protect themselves from the<br />

devastation of the virus.<br />

These most challenging times of <strong>2021</strong> were<br />

exacerbated by natural disasters. <strong>CORE</strong> responded<br />

to major climate disasters, including Hurricane<br />

Ida in New Orleans, Hurricane Dorian in The<br />

Bahamas, rare winter tornadoes in Tennessee and<br />

Kentucky, and a 7.2 magnitude earthquake in Haiti<br />

that produced a wide array of security challenges.<br />

<strong>CORE</strong> mobilized to do what we do best: provide<br />

support during the greatest times of need, quickly.<br />

Our locally fueled teams distributed over 16,000<br />

hygiene kits and provided over 11,500 families<br />

with cash assistance through vouchers and cash<br />

for work programs, and removed six football fields of debris stacked 10 feet high. In Haiti, we provided<br />

mobile health care and supported the main hospital in the South. We repaired water systems and ensured<br />

thousands of Haitians were able to return safely into their homes by tarping and repairing homes.<br />

It is now mid 2022, as we write this letter, and we have moved into even more complex crises. The illegal<br />

invasion by Russia into Ukraine, displacing millions, called on our organization’s ability to respond quickly.<br />

<strong>CORE</strong> took its lessons on the ground in COVID-19 in different countries and cities, and shape shifted quickly<br />

to provide emergency relief to thousands of displaced persons, through shelter support, water, fuel, food,<br />

blankets, hygiene kits and everything in between. We continue to expand our programs on behalf of both<br />

IDPs in Ukraine, refugees in Poland and Romania, supporting integration for the displaced with longer term<br />

programming and reconstruction. Our commitment is to support these large scale crises from disasters, to<br />

conflicts, and beyond. We are humbled and grateful for your support and trust to continue this work. It is<br />

your passion and dedication that enables <strong>CORE</strong> to remain agile and actualize during evolving landscapes<br />

of crisis. Your generosity and care for underserved communities continue to inspire hope for what we can<br />

accomplish together.<br />

On behalf of all those we serve, we thank you for your steadfast support.<br />

With gratitude,<br />

To help address the gap in global healthcare<br />

as the pandemic continued to devastate<br />

vulnerable communities, <strong>CORE</strong> expanded its<br />

COVID-19 relief efforts to Brazil, Haiti, India,<br />

and Puerto Rico. By the end of <strong>2021</strong>, <strong>CORE</strong><br />

had surpassed 6 million tests and 2 million<br />

vaccines administered in marginalized<br />

communities around the world.<br />

When Hurricane Ida made landfall in<br />

Louisiana on August 29, <strong>CORE</strong>’s regional<br />

teams responded to provide direct support<br />

to households in the most impacted<br />

communities in NOLA’s historically<br />

underserved parishes with $65,000 worth<br />

of supplies, 2,000 hot meals, and more<br />

through continual home visits.<br />

To reach the city’s most vulnerable<br />

populations, <strong>CORE</strong> launched a vaccination<br />

awareness and acceptance campaign, “It’s<br />

Time Los Angeles,” alongside community<br />

leaders to help eliminate barriers and<br />

vaccine inequity among the hardest hit<br />

communities, including Latino, Black,<br />

and Asian American and Pacific Islander<br />

populations.<br />

With more than 14,000 migrants living in<br />

squalid conditions beneath the Del Rio<br />

International Bridge, <strong>CORE</strong> mobilized<br />

quickly in September to Del Rio, Texas, to<br />

protect Haitian migrants from COVID-19 and<br />

improve living conditions with food, hygiene<br />

kits, essential resources, and PPE, as they<br />

awaited processing at the U.S. border.<br />

Two years after Hurricane Dorian<br />

devastated The Bahamas, leaving 70,000<br />

people homeless and destroying local<br />

infrastructure, <strong>CORE</strong>’s recovery efforts<br />

continued in <strong>2021</strong>. In addition to community<br />

infrastructure efforts, <strong>CORE</strong> has distributed<br />

$800,000 in grants to 168 local businesses,<br />

83 of which are female-led.<br />

To meet the ever-growing demands of<br />

COVID-19 and support the communities who<br />

needed relief the most, <strong>CORE</strong> scaled up<br />

from less than 10 headquarters employees in<br />

March of 2020 to 2,500 staff by May of <strong>2021</strong>.<br />

<strong>CORE</strong>’s Haitian expert disaster relief staff were cleaning debris<br />

within hours of the devastating 7.2-magnitude earthquake on<br />

August 14 in Haiti, and was one of the first organizations on the<br />

ground in the Sud Department providing emergency medical<br />

support, debris removal, essential resources, and hygiene &<br />

shelter kits. By the end of <strong>2021</strong>, <strong>CORE</strong> had removed 83,000 m³<br />

of debris and cleared 21 km of roads.

“I’ve lived in Cut Off my entire<br />

life. It’s a unique little town. It’s<br />

country. This is home to me.”<br />

Jeannette Terrebonne was born and raised in Cut Off, Louisiana. “I have my family, I have<br />

church family, I have meeting families, homemaker families, bible group... Each little group is a<br />

family to me, so I will never move from here,” she shared. This small fishing town that stretches<br />

along Louisiana Highway 1 obtained its unique name by early settlers that established a canal<br />

cutoff to connect Bayou Lafourche to New Orleans to make travel easier. Cut Off is in a very<br />

high-risk hurricane zone, with nearly 70 hurricanes recorded hitting the area since 1930.<br />

Coinciding with the 16th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, Hurricane Ida’s 170 mph winds tore<br />

through Cut Off on August 29, <strong>2021</strong>.<br />

Jeanette toughed it out in her home and quite literally weathered the storm throughout<br />

Category 4 Hurricane Ida. She lost eight windows, her cars, and her roof suffered severe<br />

damage. Jeanette had to live in her bathroom for weeks following Ida because the rest of her<br />

home had been infested by black mold.

“When y’all came in, I was talking on the<br />

phone and I said, ‘I have three angels<br />

who just showed up on my porch.’ That’s<br />

how I felt. I believe in angels. Y’all are<br />

angels, working to help other people in<br />

need. Thank you so much.”<br />

“I’ve been through Katrina, Rita before that,<br />

and Betsy, but nothing compared to this.<br />

Nothing. I’ve never seen it this bad. It was<br />

terrible,” she said.<br />

and began mobilizing in the hardest-hit<br />

parishes: Lafourche, Terrebonne, Saint<br />

John the Baptist, Saint Charles, Orleans,<br />

and Saint Bernard.<br />

When asked if she was afraid, Jeanette<br />

explained she had no time to think of fear.<br />

“That wind started blowing and we had<br />

rain pouring in the house and all we could<br />

do was empty buckets and mop. And<br />

then when the windows started popping,<br />

that was terrifying. I just put my hands up<br />

and said, ‘It’s out of our hands now.’ I just<br />

prayed for God to help us. He always sees<br />

me through difficulties, and that was a<br />

difficult time. I had five people in here with<br />

me. I’m just thankful that no one was hurt,”<br />

she said.<br />

<strong>CORE</strong>’s New Orleans team responded<br />

immediately after Hurricane Ida, launching<br />

a mobile resource team to supply<br />

homeowners with essential resources,<br />

such as hygiene kits, cleaning supplies,<br />

tarping materials, and school bags. With<br />

the support of local communities, <strong>CORE</strong><br />

emergency response teams identified<br />

From there, <strong>CORE</strong>’s Muck and Gut team<br />

activated their program, removing debris<br />

and non-salvageable items from homes<br />

that have been severely damaged and<br />

exposed to flooding during the disaster.<br />

The muck and gut process is a critical<br />

first step in rebuilding any facility once<br />

it’s weathered a storm.<br />

“When y’all came in, I was talking on the<br />

phone and I said, ‘I have three angels<br />

who just showed up on my porch.’ That’s<br />

how I felt. I believe in angels. Y’all are<br />

angels, working to help other people in<br />

need. Thank you so much,” Jeanette said.<br />

<strong>CORE</strong>’s New Orleans team spent a week<br />

gutting every inch of the mold-infested<br />

drywall and furniture from Jeanette’s home<br />

so she could have a clean foundation<br />

to rebuild and finally move out of her<br />

bathroom and back into normalcy.

“People didn’t know what was<br />

going on. Homes were shaking<br />

and collapsing. We had heard<br />

about earthquakes, but never<br />

experienced one.”<br />

Within hours of the 7.2- magnitude earthquake that shook Haiti’s southern coast on August 14,<br />

<strong>2021</strong>, <strong>CORE</strong> activated its emergency response program to address the most urgent needs of the<br />

communities hit hardest by the disaster.<br />

For <strong>CORE</strong>, (formerly J/P HRO), Haiti is at the heart of our organization, as our mission began in<br />

response to the horrific 2010 earthquake that devastated the nation’s capital. After over a decade<br />

of work in the country, this moment felt very much like déjà vu. As a result of the initial quake and<br />

five subsequent 5.0+ magnitude aftershocks, an estimated 73,000 homes were destroyed and<br />

46,000 suffered damages. Conservative estimates tell us that 2,248 Haitians lost their lives as a<br />

result of this tragedy.<br />

“Everybody was crying because they didn’t know what was going on. All the houses collapsed.<br />

... We saw houses collapsed on people. We were afraid and didn’t know what to do. People died;<br />

cattle died. All our belongings were destroyed,” Pierre said.<br />

<strong>CORE</strong> immediately leveraged its field team, logistical capacity, partnerships, and previous<br />

earthquake expertise to help Haiti meet this moment of crisis. After witnessing the world around,<br />

him collapse, including the walls of his own home, Pierre Pelige registered with <strong>CORE</strong> community<br />

mobilizers to join the Cash for Work team.<br />

Born and raised in Grand’Anse, Pierre was determined to help his community get back on its feet.<br />

<strong>CORE</strong> Cash for Work staff are comprised of individuals from heavily impacted communities who<br />

take on short-term relief work, both in the wake of disaster and throughout crisis recovery. Along<br />

with <strong>CORE</strong> debris removal experts and engineers, Pierre supported individuals in Sud by picking<br />

up the pieces of what was left of their homes following the earthquake.<br />

“We saw houses collapsed on people. We were afraid<br />

and didn’t know what to do. People died; cattle died.<br />

All our belongings were destroyed.”

Pierre cleared out the wreckage of his own home with the debris removal team’s support.<br />

The money he earned by helping others do the same was an essential first step for his family<br />

to rebuild.<br />

In addition to launching the Cash for Work program, <strong>CORE</strong> relief teams installed tarps on<br />

damaged homes for emergency shelter. Pierre’s home was also pre-identified to benefit from<br />

temporary shelter repair. Like many families in the area, after the earthquake hit, Pierre’s had<br />

been living under the shelter of the detached kitchen area common to rural Haitian homes.<br />

Having a tarp over their heads allowed him, his wife, and their three children to move back to<br />

the house proper. Coming up on the end of rainy season, he said that the tarp will help keep<br />

him and his family dry.<br />

“The team came and gave us all their support. A big thanks to <strong>CORE</strong> for all they have<br />

done for the commune. A big thanks for the debris removal because we couldn’t do it by<br />

ourselves. It is the support of the team that makes change happen,” Pierre said.

“The nurse I am<br />

today is because<br />

of <strong>CORE</strong>.”<br />

With limited government resources to respond to the<br />

pandemic in Brazil, COVID-19 vaccines could not come<br />

fast enough for those that needed protection most. As<br />

of December <strong>2021</strong>, 619,334 lives have been lost in Brazil<br />

from the virus, with 22.28 million cases, surpassing the<br />

U.S. in deaths due to COVID-19 per capita.<br />

In Rio de Janeiro, the virus wreaked a devastating toll. For<br />

Iasmin Cabral, a nurse hopeful, her immunocompromised<br />

parents were at the center of her concern.<br />

Iasmin grew up in a lower income community in<br />

Rio de Janeiro’s north zone. When the first wave<br />

of COVID-19 hit in March 2020, Iasmin was in her<br />

last semester of nursing school. The pandemic<br />

caused a wave of economic hardship in Brazil,<br />

and for Iasmin, financial insecurity meant a hard<br />

stop to taking her licensing exam and completing<br />

her certification.<br />

On top of putting her dreams on hold, Iasmin<br />

was unable to live with her parents due to their<br />

high health risk and finding work to continue to<br />

support her family became her highest priority.<br />

When <strong>CORE</strong> started working in Rio de Janeiro<br />

in April <strong>2021</strong>, Iasmin jumped at the opportunity<br />

to work in COVID-19 relief. Originally joining the<br />

team at <strong>CORE</strong>’s vaccine site at Portela Samba<br />

School as a scribe, Iasmin was able to save<br />

enough over the course of a few months to take<br />

her nursing licensing exam and get back on track<br />

to pursuing her dreams.<br />

When she passed, <strong>CORE</strong> immediately promoted<br />

her to a vaccinator. “<strong>CORE</strong> opened the door for<br />

me. I was finally able to start my professional<br />

career,” she said.<br />

For the first time in over a year, Iasmin was able to<br />

hug her parents after vaccinating them herself.<br />

Iasmin had the opportunity to work at several<br />

<strong>CORE</strong> sites across Rio and participate in special<br />

campaigns to vaccinate entire favelas.<br />

In Brazil, vaccines could only be accessed in<br />

public health clinics, which became extremely<br />

impacted by a huge demand and little supply.<br />

“<strong>CORE</strong>’s work helped so much to relieve the<br />

local health clinics and allow them to function<br />

“I am so grateful for<br />

each patient that I<br />

was able vaccinate.<br />

Each exchange<br />

that we had, every<br />

word said from<br />

tears of happiness<br />

and smiles was<br />

the most priceless<br />

experience.”<br />

normally. I am so grateful to have been<br />

a part of this extremely important work,<br />

which so greatly impacted people’s access<br />

to vaccines in needed areas around Rio,”<br />

Iasmin said.<br />

By the end of the vaccine campaign, with<br />

the help of Iasmin and local staff, <strong>CORE</strong><br />

administered nearly 420,000 vaccines in<br />

some of the most vulnerable areas in Rio<br />

de Janeiro.
