Relief for Haiti
Dear Friends and Colleagues:
As relief efforts continue in response to the devastating earthquake that struck Haiti on January 12, we are reminded that the need for immediate and basic human services is unrelenting and persistent. The country faces a humanitarian disaster difficult to comprehend, and although the world is trying to respond as quickly as possible, more help is needed specifically in the form of monetary donations to save lives now and in the long-term.
As professionals in the medical, health, academic, and research fields we are associated by the Medical University; and, we are connected by hope, compassion, and optimism in the future.
In response to this crisis, the Medical University has established the MUSC Haiti Relief Fund at the Coastal Community Foundation to aid in the relief efforts. Please join me in making a donation to the MUSC Haiti Relief Fund here. You may designate that your donation is for the MUSC Haiti Relief Fund.
