A container bound for Haiti is expected to arrive in port this weekend carrying contents sent by IMA World Health. The more than 500 cartons of life-saving medical kits and supplies are valued at more than $600,000. Among them are 3500 Safe Motherhood Kits™ , many of them have been provided with support from donors like you.
For every woman who dies in childbirth, 20 more suffer injury, infection or disease. These kits are designed to put an end to that by providing sterile birthing supplies, including gloves, umbilical tie, scalpel, baby supplies and more.
This shipment will be divided among the following hospitals:
Hospital Justinien, Hospital Albert Schweitzer, Hospital Grande Riv du Nord, Hospital Ste. Croix, Hospital Bienfaisance de Pignon, Hospital St. Nicolas, Hospital Armee du Salute, Hospital St. Michel de Jacmel, Hospital HIC- Sud Dept and Hospital HIC-Nord Ouest Dept.
