Haiti Earthquake Appeal

Travelandinsure.com and its sister company, Trade Aid UK, have been able to respond rapidly to an appeal for urgent funds to help the Haiti earthquake victims, only days after a 7.0 magnitude quake shook Haiti’s capital, Port-au-Prince, to its foundations, killing thousands and leaving over two million people without food, water, or shelter.  We were approached to assist by the international charity, Medair, whose Emergency Response Team is working to meet the most urgent needs of medical care, clean water, sanitation, and shelter.   This we were able to do.

There continues to be urgent need for safe, clean drinking water, medical assistance, and shelter for the most vulnerable. Even before the earthquake, Haiti had the lowest Human Development Index (HDI) ranking in the western hemisphere. This was already a very poor country in great need — now with the infrastructure of the country destroyed, people’s survival is dependent on emergency aid. Trade Aid Uk and Travelandinsure.com are pleased to support Medair.

Medair, has launched a 2 for 1 appeal where we will match the first £10,000 donations that the Charity receives from this appeal.You can support this appeal by logging onto www.medair.org/x2. Medair brings emergency relief and rehabilitation to over two million people a year in some of the most vulnerable countries in Africa, the Middle East and Asia, all countries that are severely affected by conflicts, natural disasters, or other crises. To this list, Haiti can now be added.

Medair responds to natural disasters, conflicts that uproot communities and crises, such as drought or disease. You can find out more about Medair and the work they are doing by logging onto their website at www.medair.org.
