NGOs have raised 47 million crowns in aid of Haiti

Czech NGOs have raised just over 47 million crowns (over 2.5 million dollars) in aid to earthquake survivors in Haiti. The money is being used for medicine, shelter and deliveries of food and clean water supplies to survivors. The NGO People in Need has sent a team of Czech doctors and nurses to Port-au-Prince to help in the humanitarian effort. In addition to that, the Czech government has earmarked 20 million crowns in aid, most of which will be used in the reconstruction process.
