This network of partners in Haiti have been instrumental in delivery of life saving and sustaining products, supplies and services. The network has established refugee camps, clinics and hospitals, schools, feeding centers and product distribution sites. They have given away, clothing, shoes, food, bottled water, tents, sleeping bags, tarps, medical supplies and equipment and many other products. The partners not only share product sent from Operation Compassion but also receives financial assistance for many logistical and expense related needs.

In addition, other partners have helped set up mobile kitchens to assist in feeding the many refugees created by the earthquake. Financial support and goods are being used to establish these locations that can best serve the largest number of people. Outside of Port au Prince, people are being neglected because of the vast numbers needing help. However, our partners are making it possible for survivors to find the help they need.

  • Medical – medical clinics and hospitals have been established and resupplied following the earthquake
  • Refugee Camps – more than 60,000 Haitian refugees have found help through the refugee camps established through our network of partners
  • Massive network of churches – hundreds of schools, orphanages and feeding centers are resupplied on a regular basis
