Salvation Army in Haiti Begins Transition to Long-Term Recovery

Five weeks after a devastating earthquake destroyed large parts of the island nation of Haiti, The Salvation Army is continuing to serve thousands of disaster survivors on-the-ground in Port Au Prince and elsewhere. Since the quake impacted on January 12, The Salvation Army has been working closely with multiple corporate partners and non-governmental organizations to provide food, water, medicine, shelter and other immediate aid. To date, international Salvation Army emergency response teams, along with the nearly 700 personnel permanently stationed in Haiti, have provided more than 2.8 million meals, 500,000 gallons of water, 2,900 tents and 1,500 personal hygiene kits. In addition, more than 18,000 people have received needed care from Salvation Army medical teams.
