AidWEST Humanitarian Missions
Long Business Description

AidWEST was founded during the first few days following the devastating 2010 earthquake in Haiti. In catastrophes such as this, not only are thousands killed but many more are severely injured, orphaned, separated and traumatized. In the early weeks following such disasters, large organizations slowly gear up to send medicines, doctors and nurses. But in Haiti, and in other recent disasters in impoverished places, the staggering numbers of casualties far exceeded the capabilities of the initial influx of professionals. Doctors and nurses are simply overwhelmed by the needs tens of thousands of patients have for labor-intensive procedures.

Bureau de Nutrition et Développement (BND)
Business Genre
Long Business Description

In 1986 the Bureau de Nutrition et Développement (BND) was formed by Rob J. Padberg at the behest of Caritas Nederland and COHAN (Comité de Coopération Haitiano-Néerlandaise). The latter was determined, in view of the increasing size of the program and a general re-orientation of her overall activities, to separate themselves from the Food Aid program they were executing with the assistance of the EEC and the European NGO Caritas Nederland/Stichting Mensen in Nood. However, COHAN was looking to find another organization which could continue this important program in Haiti, a program which existed since the early 1970’s. At the same time two other programs were operational in Haiti, funded by the EEC under the auspices of Father Sjef Claessens/Secofa and Father Laurence Bohnen/Pères Salésiens (Petites Ecoles du Père Bohnen), assisted respectively by the European NGO’s Caritas Secours International (Brussels, Belgium) and PROTOS (Ghent, Belgium). These projects were actively seeking an opportunity to transfer their food aid activities to another NGO due to a lack of managerial expertise and the difficult socio-political climate of the late 1980’s. BND is thus a Haitian, non-profit, apolitical, non-confessional, Non-Governmental Organization. BND operates under the laws of the Republic of Haïti.

CARE (Cooperation for American Relief Everywhere)
Long Business Description

CARE was founded in 1945 when 22 American organizations came together to rush lifesaving CARE Packages to survivors of World War II. Thousands of Americans, including President Harry S. Truman, contributed to the effort. On May 11, 1946, the first 15,000 packages reached the battered port of Le Havre, France.

These early packages were U.S. Army surplus “10-in-1” food parcels intended to provide one meal for 10 soldiers during the planned invasion of Japan. We obtained them at the end of the war and began a service that let Americans send the packages to friends and families in Europe, where millions were in danger of starvation. Ten dollars bought a CARE Package and guaranteed that its addressee would receive it within four months.

Concern Worldwide
Business Name
Long Business Description

Concern Worldwide was founded by John and Kay O’Loughlin-Kennedy in 1968, in response to the famine in the breakaway province of Biafra in Nigeria. The widespread conflict that followed Biafra’s attempt to secede from Nigeria, caused the displacement of millions and a blockade of food, medicine and basic necessities by the Nigerian authorities. At the height of the crisis in the summer of 1968, it was estimated that 6,000 children were dying every week.
