The American Red Cross is meeting urgent needs for earthquake survivors in Haiti, with more than $67 million already spent in support of response efforts. More than 40 staff members are on the ground distributing essential relief supplies, supporting logistics, disaster assessments, communications, recovery, shelter and market analysis. An additional 70 volunteers are serving as Creole translators aboard the hospital ship, USNS Comfort. The American Red Cross is providing relief supplies, such as hygiene kits, buckets, mosquito nets and kitchen sets for 100,000 people. Besides immediate response, the American Red Cross is working on long-term recovery assistance, such as restarting the local market economy and addressing housing needs.
