So far in 2011, Haiti Mission Project has received $10,516.49 in donations designated for the purchase of medications for several organizations in Haiti! Of that amount, $5121.18 was designated to be used to purchase cholera medications and supplies only.
I have purchased medications on 4 separate occasions (5/3, 6/7, 7/7, and 7/28). All of the purchased medications are now in Haiti, with the exception of the medications purchased on 7/28--those medications will arrive in Haiti in mid-August.
$5274.06 has been used to purchase cholera medications for Real Hope for Haiti's cholera treatment center.
$4478.92 has been used to purchase additional (non-cholera) medications for Real Hope for Haiti, as well as medications for Heartline and for Dr. Megan Coffee.
There is currently $688.11 remaining in the medication account. Real Hope for Haiti has been able to obtain (via donations) most of their needed supplies in Haiti. As a result, I haven't needed to purchase any cholera supplies yet. They do currently have one need, and I will be spending a small amount of the remaining money on pediatric IV tubing to be used for children with cholera. I was able to find a great deal online (via Amazon.com, of all places).
The remainder of the donated funds will be spent within the next couple months to continue purchasing medications for Haiti, and specifically for cholera in Haiti. Donations are generally spent within a couple months of being received, if not much sooner. The need for funds to purchase medications is certainly ongoing, so please continue to donate as you are able. Please visit Haiti Mission Project's support page to donate (click on the 2nd yellow "Donate" button).
Thanks so much for your ongoing support!
