As help pours in to aid victims of the earthquake in Haiti. There are people from our region that will soon be going down.

Brenna Kerr is a physician assistant who works in Hallock and Karlstad. She will be leaving with a group for Haiti sometime next week for Haiti.

Kerr so far has received some donations in money and medical supplies.

As many as eight other volunteers from the area will travel with Kerr. They will most likely help in an orphanage there. Kerr says she has gone on a mission to Haiti before and can only image what the need is now.
