Last week we packed and shipped a 40’ container of medicines and medical supplies worth over a million dollars to save and change lives in Haiti. These supplies will help restock hospitals in need of supplies following the violence and civil unrest. They are seeing a higher number of people in their emergency rooms because of the violence.
Thanks to our partnership with Health Partners International of Canada, we are able to support Haiti with medicine such as antibiotics, surgical equipment, multivitamins and wound care products all donated by Canadian pharmaceutical companies. We ship 4-6 containers of mixed medicine to Haiti and Jamaica every year.
Our partner on the ground Food For The Poor Haiti oversees distribution of the shipped goods making sure it reaches those who need it the most, quickly and efficiently. They work with hundreds of partner organizations to respond to healthcare needs across the country.
Please consider making a donation to help us cover the shipping costs of these life-shaving shipments.
