Date:1/15/2010

OAKLAND, Calif., Jan. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Kaiser Permanente announced today that it has donated $500,000 to four national disaster relief organizations to provide aid to the victims of this week's earthquake in Haiti.  The nonprofit health care organization has wired the funding to Doctors Without Borders, Relief International, Operation USA and MedShare International, and is providing expertise and support to U.S. disaster response teams.

"Our deepest sympathies go out to the victims and their families following the devastating earthquake in Haiti on Tuesday," said Raymond J. Baxter, Ph.D., senior vice president, Community Benefit, Research and Health Policy, Kaiser Permanente. "Kaiser Permanente has a long history of providing support to communities in need, and will be there for the people of Haiti through the stages of their recovery and rebuilding."

The Kaiser Permanente contribution to Haitian relief efforts includes:

  • $200,000 to Doctors Without Borders
  • $200,000 to Relief International
  • $50,000 to Operation USA
  • $50,000 to MedShare International

Some Kaiser Permanente physicians and nurses who are trained in disaster relief already have departed for Haiti on behalf of the aid organizations with which they are affiliated.

Kaiser Permanente has worked closely with these and other relief organizations during previous times of crises including support to Southeast Asia following the tsunami of 2004,
