As part of its long-term commitment of providing comprehensive healthcare in Haiti, Partners In Health will support relief and recovery programs in communities affected by the hurricanes.
Communities in the Central Plateau and Artobonite region of Haiti face extensive flooding in the wake of Hurricanes Gustav and Hanna, with nearly 10,000 people already displaced from their homes. Partners In Health's partner organization Zanmi Lasante (ZL) is in need of immediate and long-term assistance to address the urgent needs of the patients and families displaced by the flooding and also to address to cycle of poverty and disease that will only intensify in the aftermath of the storms.
Provide medical care to patients evacuted from Gonaives to St. Marc; assist displaced families; rebuild facilities damaged by flooding; strengthen long-term health, social, and economic support in the communities in which Partners In Health operates.
This project will help provide immediate relief to the communities displaced by flooding and will strengthen the social and economic support Partners In Health can provide for recovery.
This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Word file (projdoc.doc).
