Haiti Air Ambulance Launches Urgent Appeal to Combat Cholera Resurgence in Haiti
Urges Individuals, Businesses, and Organizations Worldwide to Contribute to Provide Lifesaving Treatments Amidst Devastating Crisis

HAITI – July 27, 2023 – Haiti is facing a critical public health crisis with the October 2022 resurgence of cholera, putting countless lives at risk. As of November 7, 2022, over 600 confirmed cholera cases and more than 6,500 suspected cases have been reported in the greater Port-au-Prince area alone. The outbreak’s rapid spread has overwhelmed healthcare facilities, leaving remote communities in dire need of critical medical care.

In response to this devastating outbreak, Haiti Air Ambulance (HAA) has launched an appeal for donations to help distribute life-saving treatments to cholera patients. Immediate access to IV fluids is paramount to combat the life-threatening dehydration that cholera causes. Timely administration of antibiotics is also crucial in preventing further spread and supporting patients’ recovery. HAA is working tirelessly to deliver essential treatments and antibiotics to those affected, bridging the gap between critical medical care and cholera patients in remote areas.

HAA urgently calls on individuals, businesses, and organizations worldwide to join forces in contributing to the cost of life-saving IV fluids, antibiotics, and treatments to stand in solidarity with Haiti and combat this cholera resurgence.

Emergency helicopter ambulances are critical to providing immediate medical care and transportation to critically ill patients, especially in developing countries where travel to medical care can be arduous and time-consuming.

Haiti Air Ambulance, a New York State-based charity, is dedicated to providing emergency helicopter services to the people of Haiti, 365 days a year, based solely on need and regardless of ability to pay. The organization provides specialized programs that uplift Haitians in times of need, including helicopter transport, medical supplies, specialized training, disaster relief and preparedness, and humanitarian relief.
