Recent Storms a Set-Back for Haitian Relief

GHESKIO Center's Tent City

On September 28, 2010, we received the following dispatch from Dr. Jean William Pape, Director of the GHESKIO Center in Port-au-Prince:

"I returned to Haiti today to find out that a bad storm destroyed this past week-end over 300 tents in our Tent City. I am doing all I can to create a permanent village where this population could be moved."


Since the January 12, 2010, earthquake that devastated Haiti – killing thousands and leaving many more without homes – the GHESKIO Center has been providing humanitarian assistance and emergency care to those affected by the disaster, and has continued to provide life-saving medications to people with HIV/AIDS.


Additional resources are needed to continue to feed and clothe the refugees the GHESKIO Center has housed in its Tent City. But even more pressing, because this has been an especially harsh tropical storm season, contributions are needed to allow Dr. Pape to construct the permanent village he noted in his dispatch as critically necessary to house and provide much needed medical and other services to this population of people.
