This week, Direct Relief staff in Haiti has been distributing critically needed medical material aid from its secure warehouse outside Port-au-Prince to partners caring for people injured in last month’s earthquake.
On Monday, the team disbursed medical aid to partners Real Medicine Foundation and Ananda Marga Universal Relief Team (AMURT), and delivered a truckload of specifically requested materials and medicines to St. Damien Hospital. With partners operating at capacity to care for patients, Direct Relief’s carefully targeted deliveries save healthcare providers valuable time managing inventory.
Direct Relief staff in Haiti is also working to identify additional new partners who are caring for the earthquake injured but are lack needed resources. Today the team is in Leogane to complete an assessment of several hospitals it has been in contact with.
