Progress in Haiti and rebuilding projects

Two months after the earthquake that killed as many as 200,000 people in Haiti, GlobalGiving’s 17 partner organizations continue to make a meaningful impact on the ground. - The Lambi Fund has already sent cash disbursements to 43 different community organizations throughout rural Haiti to purchase food, clothing, medicine, and other essential supplies for the thousands of displaced persons who returned to the rural communities following the earthquake, also helping to fuel the local economy. - RedR is providing vital training to aid workers, particularly focusing on effective distribution and warehousing, as well as courses on how to manage people and projects in emergency situations. - Comprehensive Disaster Response Services is seeing between 300 to 800 patients daily and is assisting in the establishment of a new tent village for families with small children. - Within three weeks of the earthquake, Partners in Health sent 66 planeloads to Haiti with more than 235 medical volunteers – orthopedic surgeons, anesthesiologists, surgical nurses and other medical professionals – and roughly 100,000 lbs of medical supplies to support the large network of local health care providers already working in the country. As the focus of the work in Haiti begins to shift from relief to recovery, you can support some of the long-term rebuilding efforts that GlobalGiving’s partners are carrying out at: http://www.globalgiving.org/haiti-recovery/. As an added bonus, GlobalGiving is MATCHING at 30% online donations up to $1000 per person made to any of these projects on TUESDAY, MARCH 16. Thank you again for your amazing support for these relief efforts on the ground.
