Medical help to Haiti
MIAMI (WSVN) -- More medical help is on its way to Haiti.
Nearly 50 doctors, nurses and EMTs flew out from Miami International Airport to the quake-devastated region of Port-au-Prince.
The trip is being sponsored by the Church of Scientology. About 40 disaster response-trained volunteer ministers will also be aboard. "We wanted to bring some medical expertise there, and we would support them in what they were doing because we're talking long hours," said Church Of Scientology volunteer Pat Harney.
They will be assisting with medical care and providing supplies. "Every person who has come has made a difference. The efforts feel so small in the light of such devastation, but every bit helps," said physician assistant Dianne Bush.
This is the fifth flight the Church of Scientology has chartered to help with the relief efforts in Haiti.
