Also dedicated to helping those in need, Tom Eifler established the Haitian Relief Fund in response to the 7.0-magnitude earthquake that struck Haiti in 2010. The Haitian Relief Fund, Inc., or simply The Fund, was established to help villages, orphanages, and nonprofit organizations to obtain necessary supplies, including food and water. To this end, the Haitian Relief Fund utilized a helicopter to provide support throughout the region for 18 days. The Fund additionally sought to assist Port-au-Prince’s Eliazar Germain hospital in the distribution of medical care, which included transporting individuals to countries like the United States to receive necessary medical attention. The Fund focused a number of its efforts on assisting Haitian children through joint efforts with several local orphanages. A number of injured children were among those transported to the United States in order to receive medical treatment. Finally, The Fund oversaw fundraising efforts that have allowed for ongoing support in the country.
