Haiti: generous donation for the fight against cholera

by Daria Napieraj, 2011/03/16

Caroline Klein, who is active as country coordinator for humedica in Haiti, has good news: a donation in kind amounting to a total value of more than 25,000 US dollars has been made by the Braun company which is based in the Dominican Republic. This donation is intended to support humedica in the fight against cholera.

The donation comprises a total of 24 pallets of medical relief goods, such as intravenous solutions, sodium chloride and infusion sets. "These materials cannot be bought in the country and we are highly pleased about receiving this donation", Caroline Klein said happily.

The medical relief goods will be put to use in the framework of the humedica project in Drouin. We will share this donation also with our local partners in Haiti; for example with the "Hospital of Hope" in Port-au-Prince and the Albert Schweizer Hospital.

Despite some difficulties with transferring the goods, the donation, which weighed as much as 15 tons, could be transported to Port-au-Prince even on the same day thanks to the excellent cooperation with the local authorities.

"We are very highly pleased with the day's events", said Caroline Klein regarding the successful further transport. "There was more than one reason for the container to get stuck at the border."

humedica would like to thank the Braun company for their generous donation and also all our other donors for any kind of support. Thanks to your help, humedica will be able to offer medical treatment to many persons in Haiti also in future.
