On Tuesday, January 12, 2010 at around 5:00pm, an earthquake with a magnitude of 7.0 struck the southern portion of Haiti near the capital city Port-au-Prince. The earthquake caused severe destruction and damage throughout the area and is considered to be a castastrophe for Haiti.

With it's extensive network of medical partnerships and over 40 years of service to healthcare providers in Haiti, MAP International is quickly assembling its emergency relief response for many of the Haitian men, women and children devastated by the powerful 7.3 earthquake.

MAP has contacted medical teams in Haiti who are already treating many of those injured. Hospitals and clinics are also providing lists of needs for emergency cargo shipments that will leave the MAP Distribution Center on the Atlantic coast to treat those needing critical care.

Donations of cash and medical GIK are needed to support the many needs. Please donate now.
