          World Affairs Council of the Florida Palm Beaches         Distinguished Speakers Series 

SPEAKER:


 CAPT Al Collins, USNChief of Staff
U.S. Naval Forces Southern Command/U.S. Fourth Fleet 

TOPIC: Helping Latin America & the Caribbean:  OPERATION UNIFIED RESPONSE & Other U.S.-led Humanitarian Efforts


April 7, 2010 

 

 
CAPT Collins  will discuss the U.S. Navy's role in Haiti earthquake relief efforts as well as the remarkable humanitarian civic assistance mission called Operation Continuing Promise.
 On 12 January, Haiti suffered a catastrophic earthquake. The magnitude 7 quake killed over 200,000 Haitians and crippled the country's economy. Ships of the U.S. Navy's Fourth Fleet were among the first on the scene. This initial response was followed by one of the hemisphere's largest relief efforts. U.S. Navy contributions included aircraft carriers, amphibious assault ships, salvage vessels and a hospital ship. At the peak of relief operations, 17 ships and over 10,000 sailors were involved in the effort. In addition to Haiti relief efforts, the U.S. government also will conduct Continuing Promise this year.  Established in 2007, this humanitarian program is an annual, four-month, civic assistance operation supported by U.S. and international military medical personnel, U.S. government agencies, regional health ministries, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and U.S. academic institutions. U.S. Naval Forces Southern Command and U.S. Fourth Fleet are the main planning and coordination commands for the Continuing Promise mission. Since its inception, Continuing Promise has treated nearly a quarter million patients and conducted dozens of civic assistance projects.
