Haiti: Greenpeace Donates Use of Ship to Doctors Without Borders

HAITI–(ENEWSPF)–January 24, 2010.  The environmental organization Greenpeace generously donated the use of its ship, Esperanza, to assist Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) with its emergency response in Haiti.

This donation enabled MSF to transport it’s most urgent life-saving medical supplies as quickly as possible by air, while Esperanza made the slower journey to Port-au-Prince carrying other less-urgent, though essential, supplies, such as blankets, buckets, and soap. The ship also carried a freight of thousands of liters of fuel, a commodity in low supply in Haiti since the earthquake struck.

Esperanza docked in Port-au-Prince on Saturday, January 23, loaded with 3,000 buckets, 3,000 blankets, 8,000 pieces soap, and 7,000 liters of fuel.

MSF is extremely grateful for this significant support from Greenpeace, and in particular to the crew of the Esperanza.
