AmeriCares Airlifts Relief to Nicaragua and Honduras
Date:9/13/2007

STAMFORD, Conn., Sept. 13 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In the aftermath of Hurricane Felix, which ripped through the Caribbean leaving much destruction, AmeriCares, the international relief organization, is sending an emergency airlift of critical medicines and aid to help the people affected in Nicaragua and Honduras.

AmeriCares will load the relief at its warehouse in Stamford, CT, and deliver it via truck to Miami, FL, where an additional supply of emergency aid was shipped by AmeriCares in preparation for the violent hurricanes that recently swept through the Caribbean. The combined shipment of critical medicines and supplies will then be airlifted from Miami, with an anticipated Sunday night lift-off, to arrive in Puerto Cabezas, Nicaragua and Tegucigalpa, Honduras on Monday. The emergency aid includes antibiotics, pain relievers, hygiene products and other medicines and supplies. An AmeriCares relief team is on its way to Nicaragua to receive the airlift and distribute the aid there.

In Nicaragua, some 50,000 people were affected by Hurricane Felix, and in Honduras, another 18,000 were impacted. AmeriCares will deliver the aid to its long-time partner in both countries, the Sovereign Military Order of Malta, who will distribute the aid.

AmeriCares has a long-standing history of responding effectively to hurricanes and other disasters around the world.
