Wisconsin-based group helping in Haiti

Posted:

PEWAUKEE (WKOW)-- Pewaukee-based "Friends for Health in Haiti" includes a number of local doctors who for years have worked to ease suffering in that country.

Now that task may seem overwhelming, but the earthquake has made them even more determined.

A modest building serves as a medical clinic in rural Haiti.  It survived the quake.

Doctor Katie Wolf helped start the clinic six years ago. She has lived in Haiti and she flew back to Port-au-Prince to help on Monday.

Her colleagues at Saint Joseph's Hospital say they know she will be doing a lot of good for the victims there.

In a recent blog post, Dr. Wolf wrote she's concerned about the conditions she and a nurse from Haiti will be facing.  She asks for prayers and financial donations for the victims.
