Partnership for Quality Medical Donations Commits to Long-Term Recovery in Haiti
Date:7/9/2010

ATLANTA, July 9 /PRNewswire/ -- When a 7.0-magnitude earthquake reduced major parts of Haiti to rubble, members of the Partnership for Quality Medical Donations (PQMD), a humanitarian alliance, rallied to provide vital medical supplies and life-saving medicines to victims. Now, six months after one of the world's worst natural disasters, they are encouraging relief organizations across the globe to commit to Haiti's full recovery.

Within three days of the Jan. 12 disaster, PQMD member organizations had already pledged $15.5 million in cash and medical products to support relief efforts reaching hundreds of thousands of Haitians. Six months later, the contribution level has quadrupled to more than $66 million. With more than one million people still living in makeshift tent cities, and the Atlantic hurricane season threatening the impoverished country with another potential natural disaster, PQMD members say ongoing aid is crucial to Haiti's recovery.

"There has been such an outpouring of support from both our corporate and non-profit member organizations in response to the Haiti catastrophe," said Lori Warrens, PQMD's Executive Director. "Thanks to the commitment of humanitarian organizations and the compassion of their health care volunteers who donated their time administering medicine and supplies, we have helped provide essential medical care to people who might not otherwise have access."

According to the Business Civic Leadership Center at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, approximately $147.8 million in corporate-driven aid has been donated t
