Earthquake Devastates Haiti

I interrupt the regularly scheduled posting about NZ to post a very important message about the devastating earthquake that hit Haiti on Tuesday.

Volunteers traveling to Haiti to help with relief efforts need to use extreme caution to avoid disease and injury. Watch out for food and water borne-illness (such as Typhoid, Hep A) and be sure that you are up to date on all adult immunizations, especially Tetanus, as you will be encountering hazardous conditions with clean up of the island. Passport Health has all the above immunizations in stock and a Travel Medicine Specialist will review your health history to determine if you need any additional immunizations.

We also have supplies that can help you in your efforts, such as: First Aid Kit, Wound Care Kit, Foam Hand Sanitizer, Antiseptic Towelettes, Ceralyte (for Dehydration) and several choices for water purification.

Passport Health is reaching out to all volunteer and relief organizations and is offering extended ours throughout their national network of clinics. Call your nearest Passport Health Location today and we will work with your schedule to get you in to our office as soon as possible. Have a whole group going to help? We will come to you! Passport Health will also come on-site for departing volunteer groups.

Passport Health supports your efforts for helping the victims and families of this horrible tragedy.

Passport Health works closely with Doctors without Borders and has received word that at least 2 of their clinics in Haiti have been destroyed. Please help support their efforts by donating directly to them. 100% of your donation goes directly to the Haitian Earthquake Relief Fund.

DONATE NOW! to Doctors Without Borders!
