Air Transat is offering a free humanitarian charter to Haiti to Health Partners International of Canada (HPIC) partner agency Food For The Poor Canada.

The airplane will be loaded with requested aid, including 15 skids of medicines and medical supplies donated by 19 healthcare and pharmaceutical companies in Canada.

Officials from Food For The Poor Haiti will personally meet the plane at Port-au-Prince’s Airport. HPIC has been working with Food For The Poor as an implementing partner in Haiti for 7 years.
