Earthquake disaster in Haiti - January 2010
Devastated Haiti – Water-Survival Box update - January 2010
We succeeded (after many unsuccessful attempts) to speak directly with Dr Claude Surena (PP of the Rotary Club of Petionville), who is the Rotary Haiti Disaster Chair. We were able to tell him that we had 200 Water-Survival Boxes immediately available and would be sending them by air as soon as possible. We last worked with Dr Surena in September, 2008 when we sent 100 WSBs to help families rendered homeless following a series of hurricanes that devastated the island.
We currently have supplies and boxes so that further packing sessions
will be organised starting immediately until
we have another 150 boxes ready. This should be achieved
within 24 hours. As new funding is being
received we are placing orders for further supplies and anticipate a
rolling programme of deliveries being received, production line being
topped up, and further boxes being packed. Given the scale of this
disaster that process will continue for so long as Dr Surena advises on
the need. Any surplus funds will, of course, be used to prepare further
supplies for future disasters.
