ACTS and Operation Hope for Children of Haiti are continually amazed how things are coming together and networks and bonds are forming. We are so fortunate to work with so many teams/relief groups that we'll have to mention in a seperate post to thank them all! Here are some stats and how all of our volunteers have made a difference. Thank you!


Monday, February 1 - FROM THE WEBLOG:

ACTS and Operation Hope, an NGO of Haiti, have united in serving together. Dr. Eddy is the brother of Dr. Archer, the hospital medical director, where we began. ACTS, a long-time partner has fed 20,000 hot meals for hospital patients and refugees to date. We have helped 11,000 patients so far. Mainly mothers and children.

We are witnessing God provide the urgent medicine we need one day at a time. ACTS is averaging dispensing $300,000 in medicine per week. We distributed five truckloads of water and four truckloads of food. We have been able to save the hospital $100,000 in food costs and donated 3,500 gallons of diesel fuel for the generator. Today we provided the hospital with new badly needed ventilator. God is good! The best is yet to come.

ACTS is donating two 180x330 circus tents worth over 1 million dollars in partnership with the YMCA to create a new village for refugees. We will supply medical teams and ACTS partnership with Haitian government to provide location and logistical support for the new village.

The medical camp at Carrfour and the outpost team has treated 2200 patients in the last two days. In our partnership with Operation Hope we are serving over 1100 patients per day from all sites. We received stories from our teams in our debrief last night.


Tuesday, January 26

On January 26, 2010 ACTS World Relief began Phase II, transitioning into community outreach in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. As a part of Phase II, ACTS is helping to establish and support 50 orphanages and 5 medical clinics.

In Phase I ACTS flew in 100 medical, emotional/spiritual, search and rescue, and safety volunteers into Port-au-Prince for the purpose of identifying, assisting and stabilizing 1200 patients in need of acute medical care. Our medical professionals performed 156 orthopedic procedures and amputations. With the acute needs diminishing, Loma Linda University and Florida Hospital will take over organizing and providing long-term care for the Port-au-Prince hospital.

Many from the hospital commented “I’m truly amazed at how ACTS is able to deploy so quickly and operate with such professionalism. Our people cannot thank you enough for saving so many lives.”

Phase II includes establishing teams of general medical professionals, including PTs, those trained in spiritual/emotional care, health educators and security staff. They will provide care and support for the orphanages and medical clinics.
