Concern’s team continue working to get help to those affected by the earthquake. Here’s an update on our response.
Concern is also participating in coordination meetings between the NGOs and the UN. This is to ensure that everyone knows who is doing what and where, and that there is a coordinated response.
The UN has stated that over one million people are in need of emergency items. On Saturday, our team collected 2,000 jerry cans, 100,000 water purification tablets and two portable water tanks from UNICEF.
A 747 cargo flight containing 30 tonnes of supplies for Concern and GOAL is scheduled to take off today. It will land in the Dominican Republic; from there it will be transferred by road to Port-au-Prince. This has been facilitated by Irish Aid.
This flight will contain emergency supplies such as: water purification tablets, plastic sheeting, tents, Blankets, and Jerry Cans. It will also contain a high-energy food called Plumpynut, which is specially designed to combat malnutrition.
