(ANS – Port-au-Prince) – In order to coordinate the aid for the Haiti  communities, on Friday 22 January Fr Mark Hyde, form the New Rochelle Mission Office will arrive in the Dominican Republic to meet the Councillors of the Haiti Vice Province and of the Antilles Province, also bringing with him some of the satellite telephones needed for communications.

The 11 trucks loaded with water, food and first aid equipment sent to  Port-au-Prince through the Dominican Province of “La Vega”, arrived at their destination on Saturday 16 January. On their journey they were escorted by a military convoy from the Dominican Republic.

Many NGO and Salesian houses are working non-stop to bring the necessary relief supplies as quickly as possible. The New Rochelle Missions Office continues with its role as the centre for information, communications and organisation while the Salesians in the Dominican Republic are dealing with the practical side of things, ensuring the safe arrival of the help being sent.

The New Rochelle Missions Office is in constant contact with UNDP, which in its turn has requested the assistance of the UNO services for the recovery of bodies still trapped in the ruins of the ENAM.

The Austrian Salesian organisation “Jugend Eine Welt”, has obtained form the NGO “MIVA Austria”, approval for a plan to send two vehicles to Haiti, one for the Salesians and one for the Daughters of Mary Help of Christians to facilitate movement in the emergency situation.
