The J/P Haitian Relief Organization (JP HERO) was set up by Sean Penn to save lives and bring relief to the Haitian people quickly and effectively.
The organization was built to support the needs of hospitals, government, religious and community organizations, and works in tandem with U.S. government organizations, (including the U.S. Army’s 82nd Airborne and the U.S. State Department ), other charitable and non-governmental organizations and receives international support. Because J/P HRO operates with virtually no administrative overhead and has an army of volunteers, nearly all contributions go directly to the people who need it. In addition, J/P HRO currently employs nearly 100 Haitians including translators, security, drivers, doctors, nurses.
