Casper woman helps in Haiti
By Bob Beck
Laramie, WY – A Wyoming effort to provide relief to Haiti continues, months after the earthquake that devastated the country's capital. Jill Ramaker Hendricks oversees the organization called Wyoming Haiti Relief. She just returned from the country and she says there are still problems. But because her organization is smaller than others that has actually helped it make an impact. Hendricks says they're working on several projects,
"We are continuing to send prosthetic teams in, we are continuing to build Geodesic domes through an effort here from a local guy in Casper. And we are continuing to send medical teams. So we would love to have more volunteers, both here on the ground and ones that want to go to Haiti. "
Hendricks says they also need financial assistance. For those who want to help, the group's website is Wyominghaitirelief dot org.
