Four AED Emergency Packages with Recertified Cardiac Science Powerheart G3 units are on their way to Thomazeau, Haiti through our donation to LiveBeyond. LiveBeyond is a non-profit organization based in Nashville, TN that brings medical care, clean water, nutrition, education, orphan care and community development support to the poorest region of Haiti. We are humbled by their mission and honored to play a role in bringing quality medical equipment to an area in great need.
The humanitarian organization began in 2005 as Mobile Medical Disaster Relief (MMDR) serving in 14 different countries. MMDR went to Haiti in 2010, when a 7.0 earthquake devastated the poorest country in the western hemisphere. Countless lives were lost, half a million people lost their homes, 30,000 children were orphaned and nearly a million left injured. Once the initial disaster relief efforts ended, LiveBeyond established a long-term presence in the poorest region of the country, Thomazeau.
LiveBeyond hosts monthly medical mission teams to provide the local people with basic medical care from American doctors and nurses. They are currently building the first operative hospital in the region, which will include a clinic, surgical suites an OB/GYN clinic and an inpatient area.
