Local Volunteers Host Event Seeking Donations to Help Build Medical Clinic in Haiti

Supporters of the Haiti Rehab Project gathered in Proctor Park Saturday. They were racing to raise money for the organization that is determined to help Haitians in need. They tell Time Warner Cable News reporter Melissa Krull although the earthquake took place five years ago, the devastation continues.

UTICA, N.Y. — Some of the people injured during the 2010 earthquake in Haiti are still in need of medical care. A group of volunteers is hoping to change that through the “Haiti Rehab Project.”

“I was there initially when it was still prevalent in everyone’s mind, but we leave there and their disabilities and their struggles don’t end. And now, these are people that are disabled in an environment that doesn’t have access to things that we have here,” said Karly Streisfeld, a member of the Haiti Rehab Project.

The organization’s mission is to support rehabilitation and medical clinics, orphanages, families, and outreach programs for those with special needs in Haiti.

To raise awareness and funds, they held their second 5K run event.
