Plymouth, MN – June 18, 2010 – Following the devastating earthquake in Haiti in January, Miga Solutions and its customers, partners and friends responded with the donation of badly needed medical equipment and supplies to aid the massive relief effort. The first container of equipment and supplies was shipped in late January and included surgical instruments and tables, surgical lights, transport stretchers and critically needed trauma supplies such as syringes and dressings. Miga will continue to provide equipment in future shipments as the needed equipment becomes available.
To date, Miga has collaborated with several organizations that are actively involved in the ongoing relief in Haiti including doctors from the Mayo Clinic Program in Underserved Global Health, Operation Blessing International and the American Refugee Committee. The donated equipment and supplies will be used both in field trauma units as well as public health facilities that are working with badly compromised medical infrastructure.
“The magnitude of this disaster is staggering – the devastation to the entire country of Haiti is unimaginable and access to basic health services is vital for the Haitian community,” said Miga Solutions CEO, Peter Robson. “Our hearts go out to those who were affected by the earthquake and we will continue to do all we can to help provide equipment and supplies needed by the global medical responders operating in Haiti.
The rebuilding process for Haiti is going to be challenging and will take time. Resources are still very limited and basic medical equipment is critically needed. Miga remains committed to helping the Haitian community with its rebuilding process and will continue to accept donations of usable equipment and supplies that can be directed to Haiti. If you would like to donate equipment, supplies or funds to support this need, please contact Miga at email@example.com or (800) 913-MIGA (6442)
