CitiHope and JBF Worldwide Provide Nearly Millions of Dollars' Worth of Medicines to Haiti
The partners will continue to work to provide medicine to promote the health and well-being of Haitians
(February 17, 2017)

MIAMI, Feb. 17, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In partnership with CitiHope, Panexus Haiti and Friends for Good Health, The Jack Brewer Foundation (JBF Worldwide) has sent a 40-foot-long container filled with millions of dollars' worth of medicine to Innovating Health International (IHI) in Haiti. IHI is a non-profit dedicated to treating chronic diseases and addressing women's health issues in developing countries. IHI is extremely active in Haiti and providing these medicines to the organization will save and improve countless lives.

"We will distribute the medications to our partners across the country, especially in the areas hit hard by Hurricane Matthew," says IHI's Dr. Vincent DeGennaro, Jr. "As the recovery efforts continue, the medications will treat thousands of people across the devastated areas."

Since 1990, CitiHope has procured, shipped, and distributed over $1 billion in medicine, medical supplies, nutritional and developmental resources to 40 countries across the world.  For the last 26 years, CitiHope has held the same values: seeking to put a healthy life within reach by promoting health, preventing disease, and providing cures to underserved populations worldwide, striving to uphold the values of stewardship, integrity, and compassion in concrete actions as people of faith, and committing to fiscal transparency.

"It has been a privilege to partner with JBF and IHI to send these medicines to Haiti. Both organizations have excelled at getting aid into the hands that need it quickly," says CitiHope's Program Fulfillment Officer, Austin Landes, "We look forward to continued efforts to bring hope and health to the Haitian people."

CitiHope's medical relief programs are now a bridge, linking indigenous medical institutions and physicians, such as IHI, with the medicine and medical supplies needed, while also educating on the proper treatment protocols. IHI's team has been working in Haiti since 2004 and operates a Women's Cancer Center with the support of JBF Worldwide.

IHI seeks to use multi-disciplinary teams to shape healthcare delivery, prevention, and education. IHI's team includes doctors, nurses, social workers, and community health workers, many of whom are former patients. JBF Worldwide secured funding for the shipment of medicines to reach Port-au-Prince with the help of Friends for Good Health. The partners have worked together on several humanitarian missions over the years.

Panexus Haiti will support the transport and coordination of medicine distributions in Haiti upon the retrieval from customs. CitiHope and JBF Worldwide will continue to work together to raise funds and medicine to support these organizations and countries in their attempt to rid their citizens of chronic diseases.

"We are humbled to have the opportunity to help bring medical relief to the people Haiti," says JBF Worldwide Founder and Executive Director Ambassador Jack Brewer. "JBF Worldwide is dedicated to serving the underserved and bringing together likeminded organizations to make a difference. Our partnership with CitiHope and Innovating Health International will save lives."
