More Help for Haiti

We would be remiss if we didn't highlight the extraordinary support for Haiti that was organized by 4Life distributors in the Caribbean. In the Dominican Republic, Gold International Diamond Esdras Cabrera Alberto led Foundation 4Life® relief efforts by securing numerous supplies, including bread, powdered milk, water, ready-to-eat meat, and many other essential items. A team of distributors worked long hours to assemble over 1,200 family packs of life-essential foods that would be ready to eat upon delivery. This was critical since the earthquake left nearly all Haitians without the basic conveniences of home.

Following their weekly meeting in Santo Domingo, distributors loaded a large truck bound for the Haitian border. At approximately 1:00 am, a convoy of vehicles headed for a small town just outside Port au Prince called Carrefour, where there is a small pocket of 4Life distributors. With the assistance of prearranged military protection, the 4Life team traveled smoothly to the destination, providing over 1,200 patiently-waiting families with their first sign of food assistance since the quake.

The International Networkers Team in Puerto Rico also made a significant contribution to the Haiti relief efforts, organized by Platinum International Diamonds Dr. Herminio Nevárez and Yadira Olivo. They encouraged distributors to bring supplies such as bottled water, clothing, powdered milk, diapers, and canned food to two 4Life meetings in Puerto Rico. After distributors sorted through donations, International Diamond Orville Pacheco worked with the mayor of Fajardo, Puerto Rico to have a truck pick up the supplies and deliver them to the dock. The container was then sent via ship to Haiti.

We are so grateful for all of the amazing support that has been provided by 4Life distributors in the past few weeks. It was wonderful to witness so many of you immediately step in to reach out to people that were desperately in need of assistance. Thank you, thank you for all that you do!
