Wal-Mart helps relief ministries serve Haiti
A tractor trailer bearing the iconic logos of Wal-Mart and Sam’s Club backed up to the warehouse of Abilene, Texas-based Global Samaritan Resources and loaded supplies bound for Miami.
Wal-Mart supplied transportation, free of charge, for about 30,000 pounds of supplies, said David Catalina, warehouse manager for Global Samaritan. From Miami, Trans Haiti Corporation transported the goods to the northern Haitian city of Cap-Haitien. Among the supplies are furnishings for a house in Cap Haitien for future teams of relief workers.
“We very grateful for organizations like these who step forward and assist us in the delivery of aid across the globe,” Catalina said.
The shipment represents “a new collaboration between numerous Churches of Christ,” said Dave Heath, onsite coordinator for World Radio Gospel Broadcasting and WFR Relief Ministries, both ministries of the White’s Ferry Road Church of Christ in West Monroe, La. Ben Adkins is the director of the ministries.
“We are coordinating between churches so that we do not miss areas that need help and do not duplicate areas,” Heath said.
