With over 750 patients treated in just 5 short days the medical team will be returning to America on Saturday for some much needed rest before resuming their daily routines at home. Relief efforts continue in Port Au Prince where the government and international community now begin to plan for longer term issues like food, water, housing and security.
Thank you to our faithful donors who have given to this effort. A newly passed bill will allow taxpayers who make charitable contributions to Haiti relief programs before March 1, 2010, to claim those contributions on their 2009 income tax returns. Please consult your tax advisor regarding your situation if you do make a contribution. Please stay with us as we work to keep you updated on Mission of Mercy's response to the Haiti earthquake disaster.Update: 01/20/2010
Medical Mercy director Dr. David Beyda posted on Twitter this morning that the response team of physicians and nurses were safe after another earthquake hit Haiti. The team has also chosen to move from the outer affected communities of the capitol into the metropolitan slums of Port Au Prince where populations and casualties are heaviest. The team will work in a temporary street clinic where other response units have been overwhelmed. The hours will be long and the situation is increasingly urgent. We ask that you keep them lifted in prayer.
1/16/2010The people of Haiti need your help now!!
Arrangements have been made for a medical team to arrive on Tuesday, led by Medical Mercy Director, Dr. David Beyda. This team of medical professionals will fly into Port au Prince to assist with the massive humanitarian crisis at hand. We will be working with Mission of Hope Haiti, an organization we have partnered with in the past.
PLEASE DONATE NOW to help us purchase food, water, tents, and specific medical supplies for this team and for general relief work. 100% of your donation will be used for our relief efforts.
With limited communication, Mission of Mercy staff on the ground in Haiti and Dominican Republic have confirmed that all sponsored children and their families are safe. In addition, no projects were damaged and the projects have resumed operation.
Mission of Mercy thanks those who have already given to support the relief efforts. Your contributions are buying tents, food, water and medical supplies for those in Haiti who have been affected.
Mission of Mercy operates 14 projects in the country of Haiti, all located in the north of this small Caribbean nation, approximately 80 miles from the epicenter of the earthquake. We can now say that there has been no damage to the buildings our projects operate out of. Children are safe and the programs are operating on normal schedules.
Haiti shares the island of Hispaniola with the Dominican Republic where Mission of Mercy operates 30 projects. Though they experienced strong tremors, there has been no other impact to our children or project structures in that country.
Communication remains difficult, but we will update information as we hear more from the project leaders. Please keep the people of Haiti in your prayers.
Mission of Mercy is responding to this disaster. Please join with us by making a donation to the Haiti Earthquake Relief Effort. Funds will go to purchase tents, food, water, and medical supplies to assist in relief efforts in Port Au Prince.
