Earthquake Slideshow

February 26, 2010

Haiti was hit by a 7.0-magnitude earthquake on January 12, 2010. After the dust settled, the scope of the catastrophe became clear. Buildings had crumbled, more than 200,000 people had died and even more were injured and in need of medical care.

Some 1 million people were left homeless and searching for food and clean water. Most of the destruction was in the capital city of Port-au-Prince and the surrounding areas, although the impact of the earthquake was felt throughout the entire country.

Within days of the earthquake, two board members with Haiti Foundation of Hope, Dr. Joe and Linda Markee, were on the ground in Port-au-Prince, volunteering at a hospital with a disaster relief team. A third board member, Dr. Steve Sethi, soon joined them. Plans moved forward to send already scheduled medical teams to Haiti in February and March.

Haiti Foundation of Hope received an outpouring of support through donations, gifts and prayers. With money received for disaster relief, the foundation was able to purchase life-saving supplies such as food and medicine to distribute to those in need. Money was also spent on fuel to transport the supplies.
