Survival Kits Drive for Haiti
The Bergen County, New Jersey Chapter of the Links, Incorporated came together once again to pack essential items for those still in need in Haiti. The Links were joined by middle and high school students from Teaneck and Englewood who meticulously packed the satchels with toiletries and other items needed by those who are still reeling from the earthquake over four years ago. A recent survey disclosed that of the 1.5 million Haitians living in camps following the quake, about 279,000 remained in a total of 352 camps. Fifteen percent of the camps had no basic protection service and 48% no health services.
