Students for Haiti Challenge

Social justice organization Partners in Health is challenging students, staff, and faculty at colleges and universities around the country to help them raise $50,000 from February 22-28 for health care services in Haiti. The total raised during the challenge week will be matched by the Entrepreneurs Foundation Help Haiti Fund, so that $50,000 could become $100,000.

The Challenge states:
“If you succeed in raising $50,000, Partners In Health will receive a grand total of $100,000. The value of this donation is enough to purchase an ambulance to transport critical patients to PIH health facilities AND cover delivery of life-saving medical supplies by cargo plane from Miami AND outfit 125 households with water purification systems AND support a mobile clinic in Haiti for three weeks – serving hundreds of patients with basic primary care, triage, and referral services.”

Unaffiliated donations are being accepted, but PIH is encouraging students to register their schools by emailing students@pih.org.
