“We want to help however we can,” says Yousuf Nabi, Vice President of marketing for Ashtel Dental.  “Our prayers are with everyone in Haiti and we hope our small donation helps those in need during this tough time.”

Giving Children Hope has already sent 47,000 pounds of medical supplies and disaster relief, as well as $1 million worth of life-saving pharmaceuticals to treat the survivors in Haiti. GCHope has also sent two relief teams to Haiti to administer and distribute aid, as well as assess current needs on the ground.

The foundation will “continue to accept monetary donations and new relief product for those in Haiti,” says Harmony Trevino, the foundation’s communications coordinator. “This is an ongoing relief effort where Giving Children Hope will continually send food, water, hygiene products and medical supplies.”
