MAP International Provides $10 Million in Essential Medicines and Medical Supplies to Haiti Relief
Date:1/31/2010

Essential medicines and medical supplies totaling $10 million have been provided by MAP, International for the relief effort in Haiti.

Brunswick, GA (PRWEB) January 31, 2010 -- MAP International (MAP.org) announced today that the organization has essential medicines and medical supplies valued at $10 million dollars committed to the relief effort in Haiti. Much of this desperately needed cargo has already been received by medical partners in the country and more is currently in route to Port-au-Prince by air or sea.

Within hours of hearing the news of the 7.0 magnitude earthquake that struck the island nation on January 12, MAP's relief effort was underway, reaching out to long-term partners in Haiti with the offer of immediate support for the devastated country.

Because of MAP's 40 year history of supplying medical shipments to clinics and hospitals throughout Haiti and because almost $3 million in regular support shipments to the country could quickly be diverted to the hardest hit areas, MAP was in a unique position get critically needed supplies out of its distribution center in Brunswick, Georgia and into the hands of caregivers already working in the country. These initial shipments were among the first to reach caregivers in the Port-au-Prince area.

MAP's Director of Relief, John Garvin arrived in Haiti within days of the massive quake, carrying the first 14 boxes of essential medicines, wound care supplies, water filters and communications gear. He was successful in contacting some of MAP's major long-term partners, assessing their needs and mobilization efforts.

Our team at the Brunswick Distribution Center continues to field new requests from partners on the ground in Hai
