This coordination project, which overall objective is to contribute for the improvement of the aid provided for the population living in displaced camps at Port-au-Prince, is now co-financed by IOM.

Furthermore, continuing the work that was developing before the earthquake, AMI Foundation supports financially 2 local NGO's in Port-au-Prince, namely APROSIFA, an NGO that works in communitarian health, mainly developing a nutrition programme for children and pregnant women, and REFRAKA, an organization that promotes health education through a local radio and awareness raising activities about several health topics.
