Companies are responding to the crisis in Haiti and supporting the recovery efforts of the earthquake that devastated Port-au-Prince last week. The Wall Street Journal recently reported that U.S. companies pledged more than $43 million dollars within the first 72 hours after the earthquake, and many more have donated since then. Baudville has also joined the cause.
Baudville’s Helping Hand, Baudville’s charitable fund, has made a $5,000 donation to Partners in Health (PIH) to assist with medical care in Haiti. PIH’s mission is to provide a preferential option for the poor in health care. The organization has had a presence in Haiti since 1985, and currently operates 8 medical facilities in the country.
Partners In Health will be integral in the medical care of the relief efforts. Because PIH is a primary healthcare provider in Haiti, patients are flooding their sites outside of Port-au-Prince for help and medical care. Donations to PIH will assist with their earthquake relief efforts and provide medical care to those wounded in the quake.
