Relief starting to reach Jacmel

Dear friends, I got word from Danny that they are unloading two planes of supplies that have reached Jacmel.. words cannot describe the urgency of the need in Haiti. Please if you are able to donate to whatever organization that is helping in Haiti, please do so.. For those that know us and the work we have been doing in Haiti for the last number of years please make a donation to our mission in Haiti for emergency relief.. you are able to donate on line on our web site ...www.lifelinehaiti.com.... We have 300 staff on the ground throughout the south part of Haiti.. we need immediate cash relief but also for the needs we will have a month and a year from now.. We are preparing containers of food for immediate need when they can get into the country but also preparing containers with supplies we will need to re build.. for enquiries of what items you can donate towards the containers.. We will have containers set up in Steinback, Winkler, Medicine Hat and Lethbridge.. John Devine is our emergency relief co-ordinator,
lifelinejohn@hotmail.com ... ph.... 403-928-0241... please contact him if you have any questions or where the containers will be located in each of these locations.. Everything is still in the beginning process... one container is being loaded with food at Central in Medicine Hat ....

I have meetings this morning in Manitoba with representatives for about 20 colonies to see how they can help can help .... Charlie, Priscilla and myself will return to Medicine Hat late tonight.

No financial amount is too small ... Government matching for Canada is good till the 12th of Feb.

Still no word on about 23oo children from our schools in different parts of Haiti.. Biggest problem is no phone communication.. We are praying they are all safe... and all our 300 staff and 4300 children in Haiti and the others that we will be able to help because of your giving...
When we are able to get into the other areas of Haiti with have an addition 7500 children that we will be able help that are connected to our organization including all the other people in those areas...
Thank you so much for your help... keep posted for updates..... Bob & Linda
