Nevadans Urged to Help with Targeted Quake Relief for Older Haitians

January 18, 2010

LAS VEGAS, Nev. - Conditions worsened for earthquake survivors in Haiti over the weekend, as officials reported that water reserves had run out. Nevadans who want to lend a helping hand to the victims can give to AARP and get a matching grant that will double the power of their donation.

Maria Dent, director of community outreach with AARP-Nevada, says her group is matching donations in any amount up to $500,000 that will be used to help Haitians over the age of 60. She says many seniors face extra hurdles as they try to survive.

"It's hard enough for somebody who may not have gotten hurt - but people who are homebound already and seniors who may have health issues, they have their own set of built-in handicaps."

The AARP Foundation has partnered with HelpAge U.S.A and its international parent organization, HelpAge International, to rush emergency relief to older victims of the earthquake.

Dent says these older Haitian quake victims may not just be trying to save themselves, but many also have small children in their care.

"The estimate is that there's over 800,000 Haitians over the age of 60. A lot of them are primary caretakers for their grandchildren. We're hoping that this can be immediate relief, including shelter, food, water - and, of course, medical attention."

Dent says AARP is picking up all the administrative costs, so that 100 percent of the funds raised can go directly to Haitian relief efforts.
