A two-minute video with current pictures from Haiti and
information about North Carolina Baptists’ response to date is available here.
Richard Brunson, director of N.C. Baptist Men, suggests
churches that are interested in helping in Haiti show the video Sunday morning.
Most of the first medical team that went to Haiti last week
will be returning to North Carolina Friday evening (Jan. 22). The second team
of 13 people is onsite and a third team is being assembled to leave Jan. 24.
The single immediate personnel need is for medical help.
Teams are having to fly into Dominican Republic and come
overland to Haiti because of the clogged airport.
“We have taken in many medical supplies,” said Brunson.
“ Right now the needs are medical and very specialized,”
Brunson said. “But in the future we will have many more opportunities for
volunteers with other skills to be used in Haiti. Potential volunteers can sign
up on our web site. We are looking at being involved in Haiti for a long time.”
