Support for Afghan and Haitian Communities

UC Davis Global Affairs extends its sincere thoughts and deepest sympathies to those affected by recent disasters and crises in Afghanistan and Haiti.

Chancellor’s Statement on Afghanistan, Haiti, Wildfires and COVID-19

In recent days, news of Afghanistan’s citizens in peril, a devastating earthquake in Haiti, destructive wildfires and the surging Delta variant has touched all of us in the UC Davis community, causing grief and sorrow for many. We have Haitian and Afghan families who are part of our larger community, as well as families who have suffered from the fires and COVID-19. I want to express my condolences to those who have experienced losses resulting from these tragedies. These events can be overwhelming, but I am grateful to see Aggies responding to support people in need, both here at home and a world away. Here are a few ways that is happening.
