Direct Relief’s staff in Haiti has received a 53-pallet shipment of medical aid, valued at more than $2.9 million (wholesale), and is processing it into smaller deliveries for various partners as needed. Navigating complicated logistics, the team in Haiti is working to ensure that healthcare providers are getting the medical supplies and materials they need to care for people affected by the earthquake. See an interactive map of aid Direct Relief has provided to Haiti for the earthquake response.
Staging materials at the Port-au-Prince secure warehouse enables the emergency response team to provide requested materials on a quick turnaround. Working with a small but dedicated crew, the Haiti warehouse team is providing a necessary service to partners whose time is best spent providing care, instead of managing large, bulky shipments on their own.
