AAFA to serve as conduit to provide relief in Haiti

American Apparel & Footwear Association (AAFA) President and CEO Kevin M. Burke released the following statement regarding the recent earthquake disaster in Haiti.

“Our hearts go out to those who have been directly affected by this tragedy. As with any disaster or emergency, we are closely monitoring this situation and are offering assistance to any AAFA members affected.

“With news of this earthquake, AAFA immediately began reaching out to members who are active in Haiti and has maintained communication with them throughout the day. At this time, our members are focusing on the safety of their workers and supporting rescue and relief operations to help the people of Haiti.

“Members have called upon AAFA to serve as a conduit to provide immediate relief and help members obtain important information from government and industry stakeholders. Although we are beginning to get a clearer picture of the impact this earthquake has had on the region, it could be some time before we are able to make full assessment about the status of Haiti's important apparel industry, which will be vital to rebuilding Haiti after this devastating event.

“The AAFA Apparel Foundation, AAFA's charitable arm, began coordinating with disaster relief organizations early this morning to offer assistance. In the coming days, the AAFA Apparel Foundation may be calling on members to donate clothing, footwear, and other resources to those in need.”
