Haiti Earthquake Aid Effort Request From Frank Mckinney – Caring House Project Foundation

To those who make things happen,

Our Caring House Project Foundation is in the process of planning an immediate and efficient response to the earthquake disaster in Haiti. CHPF’s villages and many more are devastated. Our plan will likely include securing a plane or planes to travel either direct to Haiti or to the Dominican Republic then drive to Haiti. If we are able to secure a large enough plane and proper ground transportation once we arrive, we will look to immediately gather the following in anticipation of an initial departure within the next 24-48 hours. Others to follow. The critical search and rescue window of opportunity is upon us:
1) Search, rescue and extraction equipment
2) Medical and triage supplies
3) Food, water and blankets
4) Communications (phone/video)
5) Manpower
6) Donations, http://www.frank-mckinney.com/donate.aspx. We will need to dip into CHPF’s reserves, or use monies set aside for new villages, in order to undertake this initiative. It will be costly, with the first response wave running in excess of $100,000.

    My husband is a foot & ankle surgery willing to leave for Haiti immediately to provide medical aid. Do you know who we can contact so that we can make arrangements to go down & help.
    Thank you,
    Tracy

  2. Tracy, Thanks for your help. Just saw this on a tweet: per RT @bookavore – American Airlines is taking doctors and nurses to Haiti for free. If you can go, please call 212-697-9767. Spread the word.
