Project Update: Haiti

LocationLeogane, Haiti

In the summer of 2010, just months after Operation Incubation was formed, we sent three GE Ohio Infant Warmer system infant incubators to a Doctor’s Without Borders hospital located in Leogane, Haiti, which is approximately 18 miles away from Port-au-Prince, where an earthquake devastated medical centers across Haiti along with many premature infants’ shot at life.  The equipment was donated to us by San Francisco Variety Children’s Fund and is worth close to $20,000.  The three incubators are currently being used to save infant lives at the Doctors Without Borders facility.
