Haiti Earthquake: Supplies and shelter at Terraine D'Acra
Terraine D'Acra is an area of the Delmas district of Port-au-Prince. We have been working closely with local leaders to coordinate our response.
We also opened a health clinic at the settlement today. Our medical team will be using medicines and supplies from our shipment to care for people in desperate need.
Today, children at the settlement will have safe places to play as we open the first of our child-friendly spaces. We will also be constructing latrines to prevent the spread of disease.
At Fond Parisien, our temporary settlement for clinic patients and their families is up and running. We have been putting up dozens of tents and digging latrines for the more than 200 people who are there. New patients who have had operations and are in need of follow-up care continue to arrive from Jimani and other areas. Upon arrival, each family receives three days of food rations, water containers, blankets, cooking utensils, mattresses, and clothing and hygiene supplies.
