JDC partner Heart to Heart International was the first relief group to arrive at Fondwa, Haiti, the epicenter of the most recent 6.0 magnitude quake. Our partner’s “extreme teams,” small groups consisting of two doctors, a nurse, and two operations personnel are bringing medical assistance to those suffering in outlying areas. Indeed, Heart to Heart is one of the few relief agencies venturing outside the capital to remote communities that, to date, are not seeing any other kind of assistance.
It’s a massive job but reinforcements are on the way. Heart to Heart has dispatched 20 additional medical volunteers to Haiti so that more underserved communities can be reached. Two additional airlifts of food and medicine are due to arrive in the capital in the coming days.
