The Prem Rawat Foundation gave a $5,000 grant to Americares that helped provide crucial healthcare and medications that saved lives in Haiti.
One of the most important criteria TPRF grant reviewers examine is impact. For the amount of funds requested, we look at how many people will be helped, in what ways, and for how long?
Delinos Baptiste’s home was not damaged in the quake, but he was afraid to continue to live there. This elderly man moved to the camp with an injured foot and no money for a doctor, so navigating in the camp was difficult. He relied on the sporadic support of other camp residents for his basic necessities. The distribution by Mercy Corps of life-saving items such as soap, water purification tablets, salt rehydration tablets, clean water buckets, and redeemable clean water vouchers means Delinos will not have to rely on others to care for him.
