Challenge

The GHESKIO Center has provided humanitarian assistance and emergency care to people affected by the disaster, and continues to deliver care to thousands of Haitians living with HIV/AIDS. For example, the GHESKIO Center has set up a field surgical hospital and a refugee camp for earthquake victims.

Solution

Contributions will be directed to the GHESKIO Center to support rebuilding efforts, replenish medical and other supplies, and support humanitarian assistance and emergency care activities.

Long-Term Impact

A percentage of contributions will be directed to longer term recovery efforts so that the GHESKIO Center may continue to deliver high quality care to thousands of Haitians living with and affected by HIV/AIDS.
