WAVE Country organization sending $150K+ in medical supplies to Haiti
LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Despite unrest in Haiti over gas prices, a Louisville group continues to prepare to make a delivery there.
The riots and chaos has left many Americans stranded across the island. A Lexington church group of 35 people has been stuck at a hotel but is safe on the small island. It's not stopping local Supplies Over Seas, determined to send much needed medical supplies.
S.O.S. is sending a 40-foot container filled with over $150,000 worth of supplies and equipment to the Damou Christian Mission in Jacmel. The project was started by Mary Lang and Scott Goldbach of My Daily Armor Ministries when they learned of the great need in Jacmel.
