After a devastating earthquake hit Port au Prince in 2010 IMA World Health made a long-term commitment to help the people of Haiti as they rebuild their country.
IMA was positioned to do this because of an existing network of partners and volunteers developed after opening its first office in Haiti in 2008.
Through this network IMA has sent a steady supply of medicines and supplies to support hospitals and clinics across the country.
In April, IMA delivered a shipment worth more than $775,000 to Haiti – ready to be distributed. It contained 3675 Safe Motherhood Kits ™ provide by individual donors from Global Giving and imaworldhealth.org. Also included in the shipment were 100 IMA Medicine Boxes purchased by the United Methodist Committee on Relief, 6,000 Health Kits donated by Church World Service, and other medicine essential to further local programs.
The 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.
