Malteser International would like to update you on our response to the devastating earthquake in Haiti.
Please find enclosed the Malteser International Relief Activity Report No. 1 informing about the emergency relief activities for the people in Haiti. Please use this Relief Activity Report for your own information and distribute it to the members of your association. Please feel also free to publish it on your association’s website.
We are very grateful for the financial support already announced by the Embassy of the Order of Malta in the Dominican Republic and by the Canadian Association of the Order of Malta and for the donation appeals launched by the associations in Austria, Germany, Great Britain and the United States (please see Report for details). Malteser International needs your support to help the people affected by this severe earthquake. They need our support not only in the current disaster situation but also for the rehabilitation period. Therefore, we would kindly ask you to join our network of relief: In order to avoid “fundraising confusion” and high bank fees, we suggest that all associations should first use their own internal system for collecting donations and just afterwards transfer donations to the following Malteser International bank account: Donation Account 2020122 Pax-Bank Köln, von-Werth-Str. 25-27, D-50670 Köln, Germany, Sort Code 370 60 193 IBAN DE93 3706 0193 0002 0201 22 BIC GENODED1PAX Reference: “Earthquake relief Haiti”
