Rev. Manson B. Johnson

The Big Idea: Endurance is the key to achieving challenging goals in life.“Man’s rejection can be God’s direction.  God sometimes uses the rejection of hateful people to move us to a new place or assignment–where we wouldn’t have thought of going on our own.

Update on Relief Efforts in Haiti

Written by Featured Organization on 15 January 2010.

MADRE’s Emergency Medical Relief Effort is Reaching Earthquake Surviviors in Haiti. We Need Your Help to Save More Lives.

You may be wondering whether MADRE is actually able to transport emergency relief given Haiti’s decimated infrastructure.
We have determined that our partner organization in Haiti, Zanmi Lasante, is able to bring humanitarian aid overland into the country. Teams of healthcare workers from the project have established a functioning supply chain through the Dominican Republic and are currently delivering medical aid to those most in need in Haiti.

Zanmi Lasante has more than 120 doctors and nearly 500 nurses and nursing assistants coordinating emergency medical relief efforts. They are setting up mobile field hospitals in Port-au-Prince, where staff can triage patients, provide emergency care and send those who need surgery or more complex treatment to our partner’s functioning hospitals and surgical facilities outside the destroyed city.

At the moment, their greatest need is financial support to meet the needs of the communities hardest hit by the earthquake. Zanmi Lasante needs support to quickly procure emergency medical supplies and basic living necessities, as well as transportation support for the tens of thousands of people that will be seeking care at mobile field hospitals in the capital city.

Time is of the essence. We know how to get help to survivors, but we need your generosity to purchase emergency supplies.
