report Samaritan's Purse

Samaritan's Purse is sending a disaster assistance team to Haiti after the poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere was rocked by one of the strongest earthquakes to hit the Caribbean in decades.

Samaritan's Purse dispatched a team just hours after the quake to help with water, shelter, medical care, and other emergency needs.
