Rev. Tania Guzman of MCC Santo Domingo (Dominican Republic) Shares Her Story from the Haiti Relief Efforts
12 February 2010
We have just arrived back in the Dominican Republic and are exhausted from the events of the day.
The team of five volunteers and three drivers from ICM Santo Domingo departed for Haiti at 4am on Thursday, February 11th. From the church were Rev. Tania Guzman, Wilkin and three Haitian church members (Webster, Gregory and Jonel) who are very familiar with navigating Haiti and whose families still live in the areas affected by the earthquake.
We developed a very effective system that involved having the church members contact their families and select one person for us to deliver the food to. When we approached the drop off points, we contacted the individuals via cell phone. Once we arrived at each point of delivery the contact person was already there waiting for us and we only had seconds to get all the food out of the bus and leave before we were noticed and crowds would gather.
