82nd Airborne Red Falcons and Sow a Seed Press Release


I just received this a few minutes ago, it would be a great story for any news organizations there in PAP. I think the thing I like the most about this is that the system is in place now. They have the list (over 200 if I am not mistaken) and especially that they are asking for VOLUNTEERS there to help, would allow for anyone in the area to plug in and have an immediate effect. It is especially rare because the 82nd Airborne is going to be there for security.

SOW A SEED AND RED FALCONS SAVE LIVES AND SHINE HOPE TO HAITI’S ORPHANAGES
Humanitarian Efforts to Ten Orphanages to be Facilitated with the 82nd Airborne Division U.S. Army
PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (February 16, 2010) – Sow a Seed (SAS), a non-profit organization created and led
by a group of Haitian and American professionals, is distributing supplies to ten orphanages on Wednesday,
February 17th with the help of the 82nd Airborne Division U.S. Army, specifically the Red Falcons, in Port-au-
Prince, Haiti.

Sow a Seed’s mission is to provide the basic fundamentals for disadvantaged children living in extreme poverty
in Haiti, even more so after the devastating earthquake that occurred in Haiti on January 12, 2010. After a week
of joining forces with the Red Falcons, researching and assessing what the immediate needs are for each
orphanage, Sow a Seed and the Red Falcons are prepared to distribute collections to orphanages in the La
Plaine, Bon Repos, Lillavois and Clercine area tomorrow.

Members of the media are welcome to arrive at 10 a.m., and the Red Falcons and SAS teams will begin their
mission at 10:30 a.m. Meeting point is Damien School, Haiti’s state agricultural university. All supplies and
donations such as tents, mattresses, foods, hygienic items, baby goods, and clothes collected from various SAS
fundraising events, individuals and non-governmental organizations including Shelterbox and GOAL will be
distributed to the following orphanages:

Compassion for All Foundation
Les Orphelines de la Vallee du Jourdain
Espoir des Petits Anges d'Haiti,
Rata Sourire d'Enfants
Community Salem Center Orphanage
Good Neighbors Orphanage
Foyer Renmen
Kay Tout Ti Moun
Kings Garden
Bon Berger de Fatima

Sow a Seed has also assisted the Red Falcons in scouting community hospitals and clinics for orphans who
need urgent medical care, sometimes even took action such as the day they were faced with two lethargic
babies dying of dehydration and immediately brought them to a doctor. Saved on Valentine’s Day, the babies
will now be able to receive the proper care that they need.

The partnership between SAS and the Red Falcons is vital: with strong community ties, SAS is able to
communicate and network while keeping the needs of each individual valuable, while the 82nd Airborne Division
has a strong presence in the country facilitating the data collection and dispatches. Together, they collaborate
for growth.
