The International Mission Board and Baptist Global Response are working today to establish contact with their field personnel and partners in Haiti. Following initial needs and logistics assessment they will begin disaster response efforts. Long-term rebuilding work is expected to take years to complete.
Southern Baptist Disaster Relief will be conducting a conference call this afternoon with state conventions to appraise them of the current situation and to begin planning for volunteer response. The Baptist Convention of Maryland/Delaware will be adding additional disaster relief training opportunities for the spring based upon the IMB and BGR’s request for trained volunteers.
