ALAN Haiti update – 2/5

The UN’s One Response site is a good window on Haiti relief. It provides current information by “Cluster” e.g. logistics, shelter, health, etc.

Last night we got a message from a logistics volunteer whom ALAN connected with CHF International. He had just arrived in Santo Domingo and is on his way to Haiti for a month. We make new connections as events unfold, new associations take an interest in our work and we meet other groups doing great work. Corporate Aircraft Responding in Emergencies (CARE) is one example. We called on them to help an NGO early on in the Haiti effort. Volunteers, who are aviation professionals, present relief transportation needs to corporate and private plane owners who rise to the occasion.  

Today, recent donations that have flowed through the ALAN system will be posted for NGO’s active in Haiti to consider, including gloves, coveralls, masks, ladders and warehouse space. We will also post a series of transportation needs received.

In the next few days, USAID is planning calls with major business organizations regarding ongoing Haiti needs and plans to include ALAN. We have been very active in helping them access transportation resources and options for Haiti.

Please continue to visit www.ALANaid.org and review posted need for connections.
