As the details continue to unfold about the impoverished country of Haiti and the damage done by a massive earthquake there, one Kansas-City area group is on the way.
Brad Gautney, Medical Director for One5 Foundation, is headed to Haiti with a team to assess the situation there. Once there, they’ll provide medical and logistical support. Chairman David Miller says not much is known until the medical team gets inside the borders.
Gautney is flying into the Domenican Republic via commercial air today. Once inside the Haitian borders, he’ll communicate with One5 to let them know what’s needed in the way of help and medical supplies.
Miller says the group is looking for donations, medical supplies and volunteers who can travel to Haiti, especially those with medical training. He says they’ll be working with the medical community in Kansas City to collect medical supplies.
The Missourinet will be checking in with Gautney later this week to get his first-hand accounts from Haiti.
