The southern region of Haiti is dealing with massive devastation after a magnitude 7.2 earthquake struck on August 14th, destroying homes, schools, and businesses across the country. Hospitals are overwhelmed with thousands of people injured and the death toll in the area continues to climb.
To make matters worse, Haiti was hit with a tropical depression on Monday which escalated to a tropical storm on Tuesday, leaving 10 inches of heavy rain for people already without homes and shelter.
Please join Atlantic in supporting Doctors Without Borders, an independent, global movement providing medical aid where it’s needed most.
Doctor’s Without Borders teams are on the ground in Haiti providing medical care, responding to the emergency, and assessing the needs for medical equipment items, and medical teams to care for the injured. They plan to reinforce activities in the coming days, sending more medical teams, including surgeons, as well as medical and emergency supplies from abroad.
