On August 7, I’m joining a few friends in co-hosting a fundraiser organized by Grace Keh and Yuni Chang to help the Haiti Relief Project, coordinated by Jordan International Aid (http://www.jordaninternationalaid.org), which will send a strong team of ten doctors and volunteers to continue the recovery efforts ongoing in Haiti.
UPDATE 7/25: Event has been moved to Aug. 7 so that we can hold at 111 Minna. See doctorstohaiti.orgfor the most up-to-date information.
The host committee includes Dave Lu, Kevin Lee, Benjamin Wan and Darlene Lee. Grace and Yuni, aka KC Productions, are organizing this fundraiser to supplement the cost of sending these ten volunteers to Haiti.
Five days after the earthquake, JIA was there beginning the work that continues even today. In fact, the president of JIA just left last week for Haiti again, continuing to help Haitians rebuild and recover from the devastating earthquake that demolished Port-au-Prince in January of this year.
It has been over six months now, but let’s not forget the devastation that took place there with over 230,000 lives lost.
Please see the event website (http://www.doctorstohaiti.org) for more information about the event.
$25 donation for admission; any and all additional donations will be appreciated. Your generosity makes a life-changing difference to the lives of many Haitian victims. If you are interested in being a sponsor, please e-mail email@example.com.
We hope to see you all for this exciting event!
