Doctors Without Borders teams, who were already working on ongoing medical projects in Haiti, are seeing significant damage to our medical facilities after the earthquake struck, injuries to patients and staff, and an influx of wounded men, women, and children in need of care.
MSF aid workers have set up emergency clinics, some in tents, to replace our own damaged medical centers and have treated more than 800 injured people so far.
Right now, our teams are working to ensure the safety and continued care of patients admitted to our hospitals and clinics throughout the city. We are currently transporting additional staff and emergency supplies into Haiti, opening a 100 bed hospital, and constructing an inflatable surgical unit consisting of 2 operating theaters and 7 hospitalization tents.
Please help us provide urgently needed support to our emergency response and ongoing emergency medical work in Haiti.
