Update on Nestlé Waters North America Relief Efforts in Haiti

To Press Releases listJan 14, 2010

As the situation in Haiti continues to develop, many at Nestlé Waters are working to get water to those in critical need. We will provide updates as available from our team and from our nonprofit and business partners as we learn more.

There are 20 trucks loaded with water from Poland Spring are on their way to Miami now with an additional 50 more trucks will soon follow to be warehoused in Miami, awaiting transport to the island. As has been reported, it is still very difficult to get supplies onto the ground in Haiti, because of the widespread devastation. We are so grateful to our partners at the AmeriCares relief agency who are working right now to get a few trucks airlifted, clearing dock space and preparing transport by ship or plane. We are also exploring avenues with the National Guard and the White House, both for water delivery and troop support in the relief zone.
