Project HOPE Medicines and Supplies Helping Haitians Now

Report from the Field....

Hope staff members Teresa Navares and Doug Lane traveled with an official delegation to the Haitian/Dominican Republic border town of Jimani to see first hand the Haitian refugees being treated there . The facility and its staff are overwhelmed with patients needing treatment for crush wounds, lacerations, infections and stress related disorders. The clinic sits 50 km’s from Port-au-Prince, and critical patients are being transported by helicopter. A Project HOPE shipment - a 40 foot ocean container filled with medicines and medical supplies valued at $1 million- designated for a clinic in the Dominican Republic arrived in the country just after the earthquake. A quick decision was made to move the antibiotics, analgesics, bandages, antiseptics and other critically needed items from this shipment and give it to the Jimani clinic . As a result Project HOPE donated medicines and medical supplies were delivered to this facility immediately after the earthquake and are saving lives now.
