ONEXONE partners with PIH

ONEXONE Air Canada relief flight

Since the earthquake, the ONEXONE Foundation has been an instrumental partner of Partners In Health in responding to those in need in Haiti. On January 16, in collaboration with a consortium of Canadian businesses, ONEXONE sent a shipment of much-needed provisions from Montreal to Haiti via a dedicated Air Canada relief flight.  The cargo included medical supplies: dressings, needles, IVs, IV solution, boxes of syringes, bottles of antimicrobial product, as well as blankets, tents, sleeping bags, flashlights, batteries, and water.

“ONEXONE has ensured much care and attention has been placed on making sure that this first shipment will bring supplies necessary as identified by on-the-ground relief agency, Partners In Health. Through this affiliation we know that these critical supplies are both needed and distributable,” said Joelle Adler, Founder of ONEXONE.

Through ONEXONE’s coordination, Air Canada generously donated the cargo space to transport these supplies to Haiti and the Rogers Family and Rogers Communications donated $250,000 to be distributed in funds and goods.

In addition, Rogers Wireless and Fido are encouraging their customers to assist ONEXONE in helping those in Haiti by donating via text message to Partners In Health: Haiti and other Haitian Relief Organizations.

“ONEXONE has been a terrific partner to PIH in our response to this crisis in Haiti.  They were one of the fastest organizations to mobilize valuable medical supplies and actually get a plane-load of supplies landed at Port-au-Prince airport, in partnership with Air Canada,” stated Susan Sayers, Director of Institutional Development at Partners In Health. “We just told them what we needed, and through their persistence and determination, they made it happen.”

ONEXONE has been helping children since 2005, focusing on the 5 sectors they believe create the totality of a child’s overall well-being: water, hunger, healthcare, education, and play.  With this mission, ONEXONE works in close partnership with carefully selected local organizations to implement programs and initiatives that achieve the ultimate goal of alleviating suffering and saving lives.
