AMDA Emergency Bulletin V: Chile Earthquake Emergency Relief
Two nurses from AMDA Headquarters and one coordinator from AMDA Peru have arrived in Santiago, the capital of Chile. The personnel will be the second AMDA team on this mission. After having a briefing with AMDA’s predecessor coordinator, they allocated a truck for transportation and will be purchasing relief goods on the following day.
At their earliest feasible time, the team is expected to move to Talca where AMDA will be setting up a logistic base for its relief project in the coastal region of Constitucion, the worst tsunami-affected area. Focusing on the maintenance of infant health, the activities will include the distribution of relief goods, mobile health consultations and infant health survey.
While garnering support from the local volunteers, municipal health bureau and Constitucion Hospital, Chilean Army will be assisting the logistics and security of the project.
AMDA’s first team already left Chile and returned home.
