Columbia Law School Students Raise More Than $3,500 for Haiti Earthquake Relief

Student groups at Columbia Law School have raised more than $3,500 to aid victims of the earthquake in Haiti. The funds are being directed to Partners in Health, which operates 10 hospitals and clinics, and a dozen schools in Haiti. This fundraising effort at the Law School is being led by the Latino/a Law Students Association, the Black Law Students Association, and the National Lawyers Guild.
 
The money raised is being matched by Angelwish, which helps children living with HIV/AIDS, and has worked with Partners in Health in Haiti.
 
Partners in Health ranks as one of the largest nongovernmental health care providers in Haiti – and the only provider of primary care, regardless of ability to pay, for more than half a million impoverished people in the central plateau region northeast of the capital of Port-au-Prince. All of its facilities were left intact after the quake, and its 4,000 employees have been accounted for.
