    Haitian Students Depart to Provide Relief to Earthquake Victims


    A team of Haitian-American students led by Dr. Anthony Paul and Marlo Hodnett, M.D. will be some of the first responders from the US to the earthquake in Haiti. They will depart Friday, January 15th. These students are from the National Association for the Prevention of Starvation (NAPS) a relief and mission group at Oakwood University in Huntsville, Alabama.  The group has responded to major disasters including Hurricane Katrina, Tsunami 2004, and the South Sudan Crisis. Also accompanying them is a NAPS staff member who is fluent in Spanish who will assist in the team’s trek into Haiti through the Dominican Republic. The team’s main objective is to provide medical care and “second-wave” relief in the event of an outbreak of cholera or other infectious disease due to the current water, sanitation, and health conditions. They will also train Haitian youth to provide cholera-prevention education to their fellow citizens. Find out how you can help at
