ArcelorMittal Haiti Relief Efforts
- On January 12, a massive 7.0-magnitude earthquake struck the Caribbean nation of Haiti.

- The extent of the devastation, which centered mostly within Port-au-Prince, is still unclear. It’s estimated that thousands of people may have died in what is being reported as Haiti's worst earthquake in two centuries.

- To support emergency relief efforts to Haiti, the ArcelorMittal Global Foundation is donating $100,000 in US dollars through our emergency aid fund. Monies will be provided to the “Doctors without Borders (MSF) organization which is already working on relief efforts in Haiti.

- Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) teams are reporting significant damage to their Haiti medical facilities, injuries to patients and staff, and the need to treat hundreds of incoming wounded patients.

- ArcelorMittal’s collaborative effort with “Doctors Without Borders” will extend for a two-month timeframe, further ensuring support for both emergency relief and recovery efforts.
