We have all seen and heard the reports of the extreme devastation caused in Haiti this summer from back to back disasters the country has experienced. World Medical Relief, in cooperation with Alafia Foundation of Hope International, Divine Child High School, and Kappa Psi Pharmaceutical Fraternity of Wayne State University, is collecting a variety of supplies for the Caribbean nation, which was rocked by a 7.2 magnitude earthquake and then pummeled two days later by Tropical Storm Grace. As a result of this two-fold tragedy, more than 2,000 Haitians have died, while thousands are homeless.
World Medical Relief is located in Southfield, Michigan and was started in 1953 by a Detroit housewife – Irene M. Auberlin.
There are copies of the fascinating history of this organization available on the table in Weir Foyer.
Please take a copy home with you!
Over the next several weeks, we will be collecting the following medical supplies which will be delivered to World Medical Relief and then shipped to Haiti. You may place your donations in the box located in Weir Foyer.
We will be collecting items through Sunday, October 10.
