I would like to bring to your attention a project I am involved in to help alleviate some of the hardship, and suffering brought on, and made worse by the January earthquake that wrought so much devastation to Haiti. The project is called “Homes for Haiti” and is being run by the C.O.R.E. Alliance (Christians Organized for Relief Efforts).
I have volunteered for the project, and felt that my fellow members, may have some interest either in volunteering, or donating to this urgent need.
The following information is from the C.O.R.E. Alliance Homes for Haiti information sheet…
The 7.0 magnitude earthquake that rocked the country of Haiti on January 12, 2010 left hundreds of thousands of Haitians homeless. People are living in the streets, parks, and amongst the rubble of what was once their homes.
Homes for Haiti is a tangible way for Amiericans to provide relief to the victims of the Haiti Earthquake. More secure, and private than tents, these homes will provide shelter, and rest for the Haitian people. Built in sections by volunteers across the United States, these homes will be flat-packed and shipped to Haiti to be assembled by volunteers in-contry.
Your tax-deductible contribution to CORE Alliance will help cover the cost of producing and shipping these homes to Haiti. It costs $600 per house to cover the cost of materials and shipping to the Port of Miami, or Port of Houston. Donations of funds, materials, tools, and transportation are needed.
