GAiN Canada, a Division of Power to Change, Loads Container With 1 Million Servings of Food Bound for Haiti

LANGLEY, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Jan. 18, 2010) - Global Aid Network (GAiN) Canada representatives Bill Blaney and Aaron Rogers, landed in Port-au-Prince on Saturday morning to help local contact with disaster response.

Blaney shares, "The situation is quite desperate. The center of the city is chaotic and hard to get around. Many people are leaving Port-au-Prince as there is no functioning economy or banks, no food or water. There is nothing for them there. As a result, the areas outside the city, which had more infrastructure in place, are becoming overwhelmed by desperate people seeking help."

Through the national director in Haiti, Esperandieu Pierre, GAiN is working with their network of 35 churches and volunteers to set up medical clinics and provide relief to these fringe areas of the city. These clinics will also become the destination for the injured people that line the streets of Port-au-Prince with broken limbs and major lacerations that are waiting for help.

On Tuesday, January 19 in Langley, BC GAiN will load 1 million servings of food in our next container.

GAiN is in need of urgent financial contributions in order to respond to the needs of the Haitians. Without immediate food, water and medical supplies to treat the injured, many more will die. Donations can be made at or by phone at 1.800.563.1106 and will be eligible for the Canadian Government matching funds.

Headquartered in Langley, BC, GAiN is a worldwide humanitarian relief and development non-profit organization dedicated to bringing hope and tangible help to the poor and the suffering.
