Haiti Relief Efforts: Update from the Field

Dear Friends of TPRF,
Thanks to the generosity of people all over the world, TPRF has made its second grant to help earthquake survivors in Haiti. This contribution of $50,000 will help address the serious lack of fresh, clean water that is putting thousands more at risk of life-threatening illness from contaminated water. Most at risk are children, who get dehydrated very easily. Specifically, it will help provide: bottled water for over 42,000 people in camps and medical centers; water purification kits for communities with no access to clean water; and rehydration fluids for over 125,000 children and some adults.
We are now investigating the best way to help with longer-term aid, which will continue to be needed even as world attention shifts to other concerns.
If you would like to read more about this grant, the press release with photos is now on our website.
