Peace Corps Volunteers in Morocco Haiti Earthquake Relief 5k
Bring Aid to Haiti
Thank you for joining us to bring aid to the people of Haiti
The scope the disaster is truly enormous, and a tremendous influx of immediate aid is needed to avert an even greater loss of life. Partners In Health has been working in Haiti for nearly 25 years. Our local team is already working to ensure PIH’s coordinated relief efforts, leveraging the skills of more than 120 doctors and nearly 500 nurses and nursing assistants who work at established sites throughout Haiti.
Please help us make sure that this skilled team has the resources it needs to address the crisis at hand.
On the morning of Saturday, February 20, a group of Peace Corps volunteers will gather in Rabat to participate in a 5k in order to raise money for the people of Haiti following the devastation of the earthquake on January 12. The proceeds will go directly to Partners In Health, a US based charity that began in Haiti in 1987 serving its people with a "preferential option for the poor" in terms of healthcare. The need of ongoing financial support is dire. Whereas one time donations following the earthquake have been absolutely essential in providing for the first wave of medical supplies and relief, the need continues and will continue for many months and most likely years to come.
Thank you for your support.
When a Person in Peru, or Siberia, or rural Haiti falls ill, PIH uses all of the means at our disposal to make them well…
Whatever it takes. Just as we would do if a member of our own family—or we ourselves—were ill.
