Heart to Heart International's Response to Hurricane Matthew Crisis

Operational Summary: 

Heart to Heart International (HHI) is in full disaster response mode in Haiti. We responded immediately and have deployed humanitarian aid and medical support to areas hardest hit by the storm. Our initial relief shipment was delivered by a special FedEx charter containing 30 pallets of HHI emergency supplies of medicine, medical supplies and personal hygiene kits. Our response includes 6 mobile medical teams (including one made up of volunteers from the U.S., Canada and Israel) on the ground, seeing hundreds of patients each day. The UN and the Government of Haiti have made the containment of Cholera their highest priority, and Heart to Heart International is being asked to take on a major role. Our Haitian medical teams are very experienced treating this deadly disease and we are uniquely prepared for the responsibility.
