It has almost been a year since Haiti faced a magnitude 7.2 earthquake that hit the Southern Peninsula. In the year since, BHI has been committed to working alongside partners to provide on-the-ground assistance.
Directly following the earthquake, BHI:
Completed 6 structural assessments to ensure the safety of critical health facilities, clinics and community spaces
Delivered 148,000 pounds and 184 pallets of critical supplies and medical equipment
Collaborated with 41 in-country and international partners to facilitate relief efforts
We are proud of the work our team accomplished to help provide immediate and impactful relief, and we are grateful for the support you provided to make this possible as a donor to this effort.
Our work is not done in Haiti, but as we are nearing the one year anniversary of the earthquake, our focus has shifted from relief to more long-term efforts to ensure sustainability of critical healthcare infrastructure. These efforts will ensure that Haiti’s healthcare infrastructure can grow and be resilient for years to come.
Thank you again for your critical support of this project.
