* identify a shipping company that will enable us to send out clothing, shoes, medical supplies, and school materials to as many affected areas as possible
* organizing fundraisers to occur in the local community. Please check Events section for further details
* liaising with community organizations who are keen to partner with us to support Haiti
* keeping the media informed of recent developments with family and friends in Haiti
* responding to queries from the Haitian community and the British public who want to support relief efforts in Haiti

Volunteers needed!!!

This is a message to keep everyone updated on our efforts to assist Haiti following the devastating Earthquake there on January 12th.

As mentioned previously, we have been working closely with United Haitians in the UK ( to assist them with their Earthquake appeal. The response of our people so far has been fantastic. People have been coming forward in large numbers to donate tents, sleeping bags, clothes at drop off locations around London for UHUK to send on to Haiti.

The issue now is that we have a lack of wo/man power to help get these supplies transported to the main warehouse in South London. And this is where you come in!

We are contacting you now to ask if you would be able to give some of your time to help make the UHUK Appeal run as smoothly and efficiently as possible. Specifically, we are looking for the following:

- Drivers with vehicles (the larger the better) to transport items from drop-off points in London to the main warehouse in South London.

- Drivers who have fully comprehensive insurance and can drive vans/ minibuses

- People who have large vehicles that can be borrowed for short periods

In addition, we need assistance with the following:

- Packing and sorting items at drop-off locations around London

- Distributions of Leaflets and Flyers around London

- Promoting Fundraising Events

To get involved, simply reply to this email and let us know what area you would like to help out on. Alternatively, you can ring Ely on 07916 327 728 for further information.

We very much hope that many of you will come forward and offer practical assistance to our Haitian brothers and sisters in their time of very great need.

With peace and blessings,


Check the UHUK website for information on the current drop-off points: You can also give financially at their website here:
