About The Crisis in Haiti
***Haiti Relief Matching Program Surpasses Target***
To date, we have raised over $10,000, including a $5,000 match from the Barak Raviv Foundation. 100% of your donations, along with the matching grants, are supporting the Earthquake Relief Effort of Partners in Health, which has been working in Haiti for almost 25 years. PIH is bringing immediate earthquake relief to the Haitian people.
Here is how your dollars are being put to work:
To date, Partners in Health has sent 22 plane loads with 144 medical volunteers – orthopedic surgeons, anesthesiologists, surgical nurses and other medical professionals – and several thousand pounds of medical supplies to support the more than 4,500 PIH health care providers already in Haiti. PIH is still coordinating the relief efforts at the central general hospital (HUEH) and reports having 12 operating rooms opened 24 hours per day. Across the country, they have a total of 20 operating rooms up and running.
Despite these accomplishments, PIH teams throughout the country continue to report a great need for additional medicines (antibiotics, anesthesia and narcotics), medical equipment (anesthesia machines and x-rays), medical supplies (IVs, tubing, irrigating saline), and water. The task ahead is a monumental one. And Partners In Health is determined to do whatever it takes, for as long as it takes, to ensure that healthcare is provided to the people of Haiti.
Although the matching grants have been met, a tremendous influx of immediate aid is still needed to avert an even greater loss of life. Please contribute online now to help Partners in Health provide the necessary services to save lives in Haiti.
