Haiti Earthquake

In 2010, Bridge Foundation operated several airlifts of emergency aid to assist those affected by the horrific 7.0 magnitude earthquake that struck Haiti. Supplies included several NEHK (New Emergency Health Kits) which address the basic healthcare needs of 10,000 people for 90 days. Bridge Foundation was the first private relief flight into Port Au Prince.

Bridge Foundation worked closely on the ground with our primary in-country partners, IMC and WFP. In addition to NEHK, Bridge Foundation supplied essential drugs, medical and surgical supplies and nutritionals and initiated several programs including delivery of hundreds of biomass-fueled, low-emissions cooking stoves for refugee centers.

Bridge Foundation partnered with Irish Charity "Haiti Connect" to assist the People of Haiti during the rebuilding process helping to restore essential communications. The supplies delivered helped qualified telecommunications engineers and support staff of the Haiti Connects team to build a number of Wi-Fi Mesh Networks in the affected regions.

Bridge Foundation, in concert with "FilmAid" was instrumental in bringing the "Bring the World Cup to Haiti." Bridge brought in more than a dozen stadium-size LED television screens to broadcast the World Cup Soccer matches. The broadcast which took place in Haiti's national stadium, helped lift the spirits of tens of thousands of citizens after more than five-months of extreme hardships. Bridge Foundation was honored to have supported FilmAid's initiative in bringing this marvelous opportunity to the Haitian people.

Haiti Flooding

In 2004, Bridge Foundation organized an airlift of urgently needed disaster relief supplies to flood victims in Haiti. The airlift contained nearly 55,000 pounds of beans, rice, cooking oil, infant formula and nutritional supplements. The flight landed in Port-au-Prince.

The severe flooding took more than 3,300 lives and left thousands homeless. The flooding plagued recovery efforts as recently sown crops were washed away.

The Bridge Foundation partnered with Catholic Relief Services and distributed supplies in the southeastern region of the country bordering the Dominican Republic.
