Direct Relief has assisted healthcare providers in Haiti for nearly 40 years, including a significant, multi-year response after the devastating 2010 earthquake in Port-au-Prince. Since then, Direct Relief has delivered more than $321 million worth of medicines and supplies into Haiti and is committed to continuing this support well beyond the current emergency.
