Our mission at J/P HRO is simple: to save lives and bring relief to the Haitian people quickly and effectively. We are based on the ground in Haiti, have a large network of doctors and emergency management volunteers at our disposal, as well as a deep rolodex of influential contacts across government, non-governmental and international agencies.
J/P HRO harnesses the power of 21st century technology, a vast network of contacts and volunteers, fundamental emergency response techniques and community organizing skills to bring about positive change in Haiti.
The seeds for the effort were sown years before the earthquake as key J/P HRO principals Sean Penn began a relief effort in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, Diana Jenkins' struggle in her native home of Bosnia, along with Allison Thompson and Oscar Gubernati’s work in Sri Lanka after the Tsnaumi. Together they have amassed a large network of emergency management and government contacts, which proved extremely beneficial in cutting through the bureaucracy that naturally comes with a relief effort.
