20 February 2010 - People continue to live on the streets of Port-au-Prince as fears of a second earthquake remain high.

The government of Haiti is encouraging people to remain outside their houses as fears of a second earthquake remain high. People have blocked roads to set up shelters and are living in make-shift camps throughout the city. With people living in close proximity in unsanitary conditions and with the monsoon season only weeks away, there remains a profound need for ongoing medical aid.

AAI continue to support Direct Relief International (DRI) in their distribution of life saving medicine. AAI's partner organisation DRI, has been supporting Haiti with medical aid since the 1960s and has now ramped up their operations to Haiti as it reels from the devastating earthquake. Haiti's need for international support has never been greater and DRI is focusing on supplying long term medical aid to Haitian run hospitals and medical clinics which will be treating local people long into the future. AAI will continue to support DRI with their much needed movement and distribution of medical aid within the earthquake affected regions of Haiti.

11 February, 2010 - AAI continue to support Direct Relief International in their distribution of life saving medicine.

Direct Relief International (DRI) is currently bringing large quantities of medical supplies into Haiti for distribution among over-worked local hospitals and medical clinics. These medical centres have been working around-the-clock since the disaster occurred on the 13th of January.

AAI is supporting DRI in assessing needs and distributing medicines to where they are most needed. In the last two days the DRI team pushed into the City of Leogane, two hours South-West of Port-au-Prince, to assess local needs. In Leogane, the DRI team found that the local NursingUniversity (Universite Episcopale D'Haiti) had become a makeshift hospital overnight after the earthquake hit. The people around the University have set up a shelter village and the Dean, Hilda Alcindor, is unsure how long they will stay, merely saying ‘we must help these people'.

DRI supplied the NursingUniversity with much needed medical supplies and hopes to support them in the future.

1 February 2010 - AAI support Direct Relief International in their distribution of much needed medical supplies in earthquake ravaged Haiti.

The destructive power of the Haitian earthquake has left hundreds of thousands dead and many more homeless. With millions living in camps and make-shift shelters, there is a need for ongoing long term medical assistance.

Working in conjunction with DRI, AAI is conducting disaster assessments in and around Port-au-Prince in preparation for the potential future establishment of AAI medical outreach clinics. In these assessments, AAI is focusing on those areas which are yet to receive adequate medical assistance or which have been neglected because of difficult terrain or environment.
