Oxfam America

Oxfam has a 200-person staff on the ground in Haiti, and a 15-person team of highly-experienced emergency specialists in the capital providing public health, water and sanitation services to prevent the spread of waterborne disease.

According to Michael Delaney, Oxfam America's director of humanitarian response department, “The first step in an emergency will be getting clean water to people who need it as we know from experience that shocks like this disrupt water lines, and transportation is completely broken down." They expect their response will be long term, considering the quake's severity and the poverty of the nation.
