Challenge

Earthquakes strike without warning, rapidly causing numerous deaths and injuries. In the aftermath of large quakes, widespread damage to residences and health facilities often means thousands of people are left homeless and in need of medical supplies and health care. Direct Relief partners with local organizations in affected countries to ensure those who are most vulnerable are able to receive the medication and care they need.

Solution

Direct Relief is mobilizing emergency shipments of medicines, wound care supplies, medical tents, IV solutions, medical backpacks, and other resources to equip healthcare providers in Haiti with these most-needed items.

Long-Term Impact

The impact will be that people in need receive medical care and services, with the long-term goal of having healthier communities in Haiti.
