Jehovah's Witnesses’ relief efforts in Haiti continue

2010-01-29 19:17:50
Two groups of French-speaking health workers counting 24 in total volunteers arrived on Wednesday, January 20 to join relief efforts in Haiti. These groups brought 5,000 pounds of medicine and equipment, enabling them to begin assisting victims immediately. The Jehovah's Witnesses’ branch office in the Dominican Republic continues to send truck shipments of food and medicine. Every two days, 30,000 pounds of supplies are provided in caravans of three or four trucks. As of January 25, the Dominican Republic branch has sent 70 tons of food and medical equipment to Haiti. Another 15 tons (including a shipment of tents) were sent in the early morning hours of January 26. All the volunteers are focusing on the still urgent need to care for the wounded. The Governing Body of Jehovah’s Witnesses is coordinating these international relief efforts from the Witnesses’ world headquarters in Brooklyn.
