An explanation of the group heading the relief is: Hope Outreach International, a 501C3 organization for outreach. is headed by a group of mostly young, local Haitian-American Pastors, with family members still living in Haiti. Because all of these Pastors were born and grew up in Haiti and with their families still living there, they know where help is needed, they have the contacts to reach the people in the outlying areas that need help, and they have a plan. These Pastors are well connected with the missionaries in the areas affected, and they plan to use the land around orphanages as their distribution points. They will be taking nurses and first aid supplies (they are dependent upon donations of these items from the general public), and other items. The work gloves, masks, and safety glasses are needed for the protection of the local volunteers as they continue searching through the rubble for the dead. These items are not covered by Red Cross donations. Also high on their list are the personal hygiene items to help offset illnesses due to living in unsanitary conditions until sanitation is restored. Once again, if these items are donated, it will allow them to use their funds for the purchase of big items such as gasoline powered generators, and expensive medical supplies. Financial contributions may be made to: Hope Outreach International at www.reachwithhope.org, P.O. Box 29, Oneco, FL 34264 Donations of the smaller tangible items may be brought to: Democratic Headquarters Monday to Friday, 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM. Updates will be furnished as the Delegation provides the requested help. Respectfully Submitted, The Manatee County Democratic Party/Haitian Emergency Delegation
