Racing to Get Relief to Families in Desperate Need, Save the Children Begins Distribution of Relief Supplies

Save the Children: Annie Foster



Annie Foster, Save the Children emergency team leader


Port-au-Prince, Haiti

January 15, 2010

Starting last night, Save the Children’s response team began distributing IV solutions and medicines to 14   hospitals and clinics throughout the Port-au-Prince region. 

A truck load of family kits and hygiene kits just arrived at our office in Haiti from our office in the Dominican Republic.  We will begin distributing those supplies immediately.

We have 20 vehicles and 27 motorcycles to enable us to deliver aid.

We are seeing dazed, dehydrated parents walking the streets with their children, searching for clean water and food.  

Many are starting to congregate in open spaces, setting up makeshift camps. 

They are particularly fearful of being in or near buildings, as strong after shocks are continuing — one occurred at 5 am this morning. 

Save the Children will be starting "safe space" areas for children in these camps, and also beginning child tracing programs to reconnect children who were separated from their families during the emergency.

Help Us Respond to the Haiti Earthquake Emergency. Please Donate Now.

YOU CAN DONATE $10 TO THE HAITI EARTHQUAKE RELIEF FUND BY TEXTING “SAVE” to 20222.

  1. Hi,

    just wanted to bring your attention to this:

    “We are also gearing up to admit sick and injured children, as well as those who have been orphaned by the disaster. Many of the hospitals in Port-au-Prince have collapsed. There is a critical shortage of basic medical supplies and medical personnel. Over the course of today, two local hospitals have contacted God’s Littlest Angels, requesting that we send what ever we can spare to them. Our Director anticipate that people will begin arriving at our gate, as soon as they hear that we have nurses and medical supplies here. We are talking about setting up a room at the orphanage as a makeshift clinic.”

Their follow up was to build a special model that took the truck beyond anything they had delivered to this point — the F150 SVT Raptor. Patterned after the extreme off-road vehicles that battle the harsh Baja desert terrain in off-road racing, the Raptor is a complete package, using the F150 platform as the starting point. Let’s take a closer look at what makes this latest installment from Ford warrant the name Raptor.
