On January 18th, AFSC's Greensboro office held a volunteer day to make disaster relief kits for Haiti. Thanks to the enormous turnout we had, it was a huge success! We were covered by many news outlets, some of which are linked below.
We made nearly twice as many kits as we expected for Haiti -- final count is 97 -- and also produced over 70 kits for local use. We think this is a great way to demonstrate the way that issues of poverty and economic justice cross borders, and affect us here in the Triad.
Listen to the special phone briefing and conversation on AFSC's investment with communities after disaster. Recorded after the 2010 Earthquake in Haiti, it also discusses the years of work by AFSC in Indonesia in response of the Tsunami.
Mark your calendar for this special event. We look forward to seeing you. Please see http://www.matenwaclc.org/ to learn about the School, and for updates on the effects of the earthquake on the community.
