Earthquake in Port au Prince…

Dear Friends and Family,


As most of you have heard by now we have had a devastating earthquake hit Port au Prince Haiti.   I am flying down to offer what assistance I can.  We will be using the buildings for medical treatment.  We will need funds to purchase what supplies will be needed.


Please be in Prayer for us, for our safety and all of the children we take care of in Haiti. 

Love,
Vanessa A. Carpenter

Vanessa,
my husband and myself are medical professionals ready to jump in- Most medical volunteering organizations I have looked up since learning about the earthquick DO NOT send volunteers "overseas".
We want to help, beyond just making a donation. Please, if anyone reading has suggestions, I would appreciate the information!
I am a French native speaker. Hubby is a ER doc, me an ICU Nuse and a NP student, but none of this matters if we keep sitting in front of the news instead of landing a helping hand.
Thank you
Jo
