#Haiti Orphanage Update – Get Involved

Haiti Orphanage Update.

FROM CARE2’S Justin Perkins — more on Luke Montgomery and the orphanage:
I spoke with Luke yesterday (Saturday the 16th) before he took off.  The orphans were off the street and being cared for by another orphanage that made space with inflatable mattresses.  Because the Jacmal region is separated from Port Au Prince by mountains, no aid has arrived yet (as of yesterday).  Luke is planning to redirect any funds that come in to bring supplies to the locals to help with the short term crisis.  Because the region is difficult to get to, and the majority of the people and efforts are focused on Port Au Prince,  [this] very well may be the first aid going into the area.  The hospital was totaled, so they are short on supplies and have been treating people outside in a makeshift staging area.  Luke will be shopping for supplies in the Dominican Republic and then transporting them via boat and likely motorcycle to the isolated region of Jacmal.
