Earthquake in Haiti

As with many other individuals and organizations, we extend our support to the people of Haiti as the magnitude of the disaster becomes apparent.

Our staff is working with various disaster-related VisionLink customers to provide appropriate technology, including offers for contributed solutions.

Based on our experience in disaster relief, I would remind readers that most relief organizations need monetary donations more than anything. The funds allow them to acquire and deploy what is needed most quickly and effectively. Donated goods, unless explicitly requested, are often a burden to the relief supply chain.

The scope of this disaster, and the lack of basic infrastructure in Haiti means that recovery will be a very long and highly challenging effort. We stand ready to assist.
