Our teams provided medical assistance and patient care, treating 1,052 Haitians in total.
As of September 16, the last team of our medical volunteers have concluded operations in Haiti.
HOW WE SERVE
Team Rubicon, now a force of 150,000+ veteran-led volunteers, was founded in response to the 2010 earthquake in Haiti.
After the catastrophic earthquake shook the island nation of Haiti in 2010, a team of eight set out to serve people who needed urgent help. Using the skills they learned in the military, the team provided medical aid and established field hospitals.
We have taken the learnings and experience from our first mission to serve thousands of disaster-stricken communities since.
11 years later, we served Haiti once again.
Our Director of Branch Operations, Dennis Clancey, explains on the Weather Channel how medical volunteers are collaborating with local hospitals in Haiti to meet the needs where they are.
The 7.2 magnitude quake has left more than 10k injured, 2000 dead, and 36K homes destroyed. Team Rubicon's first team of medical volunteers is headed to Les Cayes Wednesday with a second team following Thursday.
Greyshirt medical providers are working in the ER and NICU. Since beginning support, volunteers have seen 522 patient cases and counting.
Team Rubicon's recon team have identified Les Cayes as the place most in need of medical support following the August 14th earthquake. They are setting up an operating base and will be deploying more medical volunteers in the coming days.
Team Rubicon is a 501(c)(3)
