Helping Hand for Relief and Development (HHRD) is going to air a Live five hour - Muslims For Haiti - Telethon on ARY Digital, that will air worldwide; USA, Canada, Middle East, UK, and Pakistan on Saturday, January 30th, 2010 starting 12:00 PM EST.
HHRD has set up a medical base camp for the victims of the earthquake in Haiti. Not only is HHRD working closely with the local doctors, a second team of Medical professionals arrived January 29, 2010 in Haiti.
At the forefront of this effort is HHRD's Director of International Projects, Irfan Khurshid. His initial observation states, "In all the camps that we visited, we didn't see any medical help available. There isn't much medical help and only a few have access to it." Thus, our primary focus is providing medical assistance. While we tend to these requests, we have kept in mind the most needed items like drinking water, food and shelter.
HHRD volunteers and Medical team had been initially staying on the border of Haiti in Santa Domingo due to safety issues. They have been traveling into Haiti, making a 7 hour trip everyday and returning by night. Despite the security issues within Haiti, HHRD has been successful in setting up a Medical Clinic in Port-au-Price.
People have been sleeping on the streets since the earthquake hit. They are out of their homes, hungry, without shelter and in desperate need of basic necessities. HHRD will be sending containers to Haiti for the millions that have been displaced from their homes. For collection center locations please visit our website.
Helping Hand for Relief and Development has launched a $1.5 million appeal for the earthquake victims of Haiti.
