Haiti: Frequently Asked Questions

Haiti: Frequently Asked Questions

This is part one in a series of interviews where our President and CEO Gail McGovern will answer some of your most frequently asked questions about our response and recovery efforts for survivors in Haiti.

Today, we’ve asked her to explain why you might not be seeing an overwhelming amount of American Red Cross visibility on the ground.

“…they’re probably seeing our tents, tarps, food, supplies, emergency relief kits wherever they go. We have chosen not to slap our brand on all of those supplies. The reason is we didn’t want to hold up sending relief items into Haiti because we needed to add our logo to them. That eats up time and in a crisis like this one we wanted to send things as quickly as possible.”
