“Haiti is going to be needing support for quite some time. MCC has been there for a long time. We’ve been partnering with our local staff and partners there and we plan to do that moving forward,” Interim Director of Disaster Response, Annie Loewen said.

The MCC expects to need more donations as it continues to help with the Haiti relief effort. It also says volunteers are more than welcome to come by and roll up their sleeves.
