Haiti Earthquake Relief

AmeriCares was on the ground within 48 hours of the 7.0-magnitude earthquake that devastated Haiti on January 12, 2010.  Since that time, we have delivered $40 million in aid to more than 90 healthcare partners treating survivors.

AmeriCares India Foundation played a significant role in supporting the AmeriCares global response.  In the aftermath of the earthquake, AmeriCares India Foundation immediately mobilized its resources by appealing to supporters and seeking ways to assist the people of Haiti even from across the world.  With our logistics expertise and established partnerships with Indian pharmaceutical manufacturers, AmeriCares India Foundation was able to quickly amass a container of essential medicines desperately needed by doctors and nurses in resource-depleted centers in Haiti.  Therefore soon thereafter, a shipment departed the port of Mumbai destined for Haiti carrying life-saving medicines including antibiotics, antidiarrheals, anti-nausea medicines and pain relievers.

The earthquake of 2010 decimated an already fragile country and one year later, Haiti is still crippled by the many after effects. From ongoing earthquake recovery efforts to Hurricane Tomas and a deadly outbreak of cholera, Haiti cannot and will not be ignored. As we did following the 2004 tsunami and Hurricane Katrina, we will invest our resources in Haiti with great care in order to maximize our impact.
