Amidst a COVID surge, ongoing political upheaval and civil unrest, Haiti has been faced now with the strain of a 7.2-magnitude earthquake, displacing and injuring thousands of its citizens, and with a death toll thus far approaching 2,000. An already stretched and under-resourced healthcare system is calling for international aid to help Haitian communities through this crisis.
The first of many planned PPE donations is on its way to help providers in Haiti safely combat the rise of COVID in its communities. Thank you for your support! Contribute now to the campaign to help us save lives!
Thank you to our partners, the Bruno family, who are facilitating getting supplies in the hands of Haitian providers!
