Why MATH needs your help
Hôpital de la Communaute Dame-Marienne
By now you will have heard that a 7.2 magnitude earthquake struck Haiti on Saturday, 14 Aug 2021. The U.S. Geological Service estimated that its epicenter was about 80 miles west of the capital. Although it did little more than shake Port-au-Prince and points north, the south and its peninsula were affected, with significant structural damage in the cities of Cayes and Jeremie and villages along the only road we take to Dame-Marie.
MATH had formed just prior to the 2010 earthquake and over the last 12 years the capability and capacity has been built to enable medical and surgical support to be provided. The teams already on the ground in Haiti – Dr. Dasny Mackenson and staff at Hôpital de la Communaute Dame-Marienne (Dame-Marie Project) and Dr. WIlkens and staff at Hôpital Bellevue-La-Montagne (Port-au-Prince Project) – are responding to the crisis with their medical and surgical skills and are counting on all of us for the support and resources needed. Injuries from the disaster necessitate purchases of supplies and medication for anesthesia and field surgery, and we need to do as much as possible before Tropical Storm Grace hits on Monday.
This is an emergency appeal and MATH is asking for your help now more than ever as Haiti grapples with this latest disaster, the hurricane season and the COVID-19 vaccination program that is only now beginning. Your contribution will help our staff response. Please donate now to Medical Aid to Haiti, Inc. https://medicalaidtohaiti.org/donate/
