In response to the recent catastrophic earthquake in Haiti, the Cosanti Foundation has donated $3,000 from our Tsunami Disaster Fund to Partners in Health, a Boston-based nonprofit organization that has provided vital health care services in Haiti for more than 20 years.
The 7.0 magnitude earthquake shook Haiti near its capital of Port-au-Prince on January 12, 2010, leaving a path of utter devastation. Partners in Health is one of the largest health care providers in the country, working with the Haitian Ministry of Health to deliver comprehensive health care services to a catchment area of 1.2 million.
Our donation was made possible by gifts and accumulating contributions from the sale of Soleri Cause Bells, a line of bronze windbells sold in a variety of designs, each representing a specific cause or charity. A portion of the sale of each Cause Bell benefits a nonprofit organization.
