The Haiti Disaster
On January 12, a series of earthquakes with magnitudes ranging from 6.5 to 7.3 devastated the Caribbean state of Haiti. We at Sinclair stand with the world in mourning the victims of this terrible disaster and look for ways to help this stricken nation.
In 1887, David A. Sinclair founded our college with a strong philosophy in mind for its future: find a need and endeavor to meet it. And today, Sinclair President Steven Johnson reminds us that "right now, the people of Haiti have a great need and we have a great opportunity to help meet that need in any way we can."
Sinclair’s Haiti Disaster Response Team is currently working to develop a full plan for disaster relief efforts led by the college. In the near future, Sinclair hopes to:
- organize aid trips to provide hands-on help in Haiti
- provide books, furniture and equipment to Haitian schools
- organize food and clothing drives for donations
