Aid shipment arrives in Haiti, reaches people in need

A 160,000 pound aid shipment that Islamic Relief USA coordinated with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints arrived in Haiti this past weekend.

Aid workers have been working round the clock to make sure it reaches people in most need.

Senior IR-USA staff-member Anwar Khan accompanied the shipment and has been helping pitch tents and administer aid.

“We’re only getting started,” Khan says, explaining Islamic Relief’s plans for long-term development.

“The Haitian people need real solutions to get their lives back to normal, and Islamic Relief is trying to help.”
