MegaCARE to Ship More Food to Haiti

This is our final day in Port-au-Prince, and MegaCARE has captured video of the devastation of the city and interviewed families affected by the earthquake. On February 9th a container of food will be shipped to the Dominican Republic and subsequently transported to Haiti and distributed there. This effort will feed 271,000 people. We feel that we must do more. God help us to continue to help the people of Haiti.

MegaCARE Helps to Supply Clean Water


Our time in Haiti is coming to a close, and today we went to the outskirts of Port-au-Prince, and we visited the Adventist Hospital there. In partnering with another organization, we have been able to provide a desperately needed water purification system. We left the system with a water engineer. The engineer was confident that the purification system would provide clean water for the surgeons, hospital patients, and nearby tent city. Finances were given by MegaCARE to purchase additional supplies and to assist in completing the water project. This project alone will positively affect the doctors and patients of the hospital as well as the thousands of families in that area.

We Helped Feed More than 60,000 People


We are conducting a site visit to the staging area where our trucks are in line for distribution. More than 60,000 people living in the nearby tent city will receive beans, grains, cereals and other supplies. Our crew visited families living in the tent city, and we were able to hear their stories while encouraging them in prayer.

St. Francis Hospital


Today we visited and assessed St. Francis Hospital. At present, their greatest need is a water purification system which would cost between $2000 – $10,000. Unfortunately, the pediatric ward was completely destroyed with no record of the death toll. Make-shift tents have been erected in the parking lots and courtyard areas as refuge for the survivors. There is a great need for more doctors and nurses to give their time for these hurting, injured people. Our hearts our overwhelmed for the people of Haiti.

Our Arrival in Haiti


After arriving in Haiti, met with several organizations to plan the distribution of our supplies. While in the country we secured an interpreter and set up base-camp.

As humanitarian efforts continue in Port-au-Prince and other areas of Haiti affected by the recent earthquakes, the humanitarian community must also be thinking about the repercussions in areas outside the impact zone. The rural and urban areas that were not directly or severely affected by the earthquake may nonetheless suffer due to disruptions in trade and services.

Plans are in place to decentralize the population of Port-au-Prince while thousands of families are being relocated by the Haitian government to targeted rural towns throughout Haiti. To date, the government confirms that 262,000 people have been relocated to rural communities and that number does not contain those that may have relocated their by private means. Thus, the total number is not yet available.

Three Truckloads of MegaCARE Supplies Sent with the United Nations Convey


Today, our team arrived in the Dominican Republic to connect with the three trucks loaded with food, water, and supplies. Our purpose is to follow the trucks to Port-au-Prince, Haiti and participate in the distribution of goods. Our efforts have been coordinated through MIR International. At this moment, we are preparing to transport our supplies to Haiti.

After conducting meetings with Steve Bostain, the Executive Director of CURE International (Santo Domingo)—whose medical team was one of the first responders to Port-au-Prince, we are happy to report that we’ll be supporting his team in their effort to set up field hospitals and restored two operating rooms in damaged hospital facilities.

Afterwards, we drove by van from the Dominican Republic to Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Praise God! Our three trucks of supplies were included in a convoy of the United Nations.
