Updated corresponcence letter from CARE to Bee Charitable:*

Nabiha,

The situation in Haiti remains dire. CARE staff on the ground in Haiti say the extent of the damage to homes and infrastructure is reminiscent of the damage caused by the 2004 tsunami in Asia.

We have begun our distribution of 60,000 meals and 600,000 tablets to purify water. While the logistics in this type of situation can be difficult, we are coordinating efforts with other agencies to make sure we don’t duplicate areas and we reach everyone in need.

Our initial goal is to help 25,000 people, but this number will rapidly increase. In addition to the meals and water purification tablets, we also are helping distribute sanitation items, plastic sheeting and cooking kits.

Women and children are among those most affected. Haiti already had one of the highest maternal death rates in the region and there are an estimated 37,000 pregnant women in the disaster zone who, without access to proper medical care, clean water and food, risk medical complications.

After disasters, CARE also provides safe delivery kits for women and health centers to facilitate safer, cleaner deliveries. We are working together with partners to determine how to procure these items as quickly as possible.
