Convoy of Hope food distribution in Port au Prince.
At the time of the Haiti earthquake, Convoy of Hope country director Kevin Rose was in country for the cataclysmic event. The week prior to the earthquake our warehouse had been filled because of the ongoing feeding program which was feeding 7000 children daily. Kevin Rose was able to immediately begin the Convoy of Hope disaster response by feeding people because of the 1 million plus meals which had been delivered just a few days prior.
Within 40 hours of the quake the first response team was on the ground in Port au Prince and the second team arrived one day later. Several of the Convoy of Hope response team members worked with the existing local network to establish immediate points of distribution for the food while others began working with injured victims. By the middle of February, eight response teams had been deployed to Haiti and the COH work on the ground was running smoothly.
As of February 8, 2010: *3,159,719 meals distributed *360,218 people served *Ongoing training with Sawyer Water Filters *2 of three high volume water filters running. Each capable of filtering 56,000 liters per day *21 total points of distribution with 2 static high volume distribution points in Port au Prince.
