Humanitarian aid aspects of Haiti earthquake

2010-03-19

Tammy Babcock is the founder of Help Tammy Help Haiti (www.helptammyhelphaiti.com) and a security supervisor at Queen’s University. She is available to discuss the humanitarian aid aspects of the Haiti earthquake.Babcock’s charity raised money to build a water tower that has been running since July. (She doesn’t know yet if the tower collapsed or is still standing.) She was working with officials in the United Nations and was planning to fly to Haiti on Jan. 26 to break ground on a new medical clinic. She has been to Haiti numerous times and considers the country “a second home.”“Haiti, even before this earthquake happened, needed so much help. Now imagine what it’s like. It is going to be years before the country can recover from this,” Ms. Babcock says.To arrange an interview, please contact communication officers Michael Onesi at 613.533.6000 ext. 77513 or e-mail michael.onesi@queensu.ca, or Kristyn Wallace at 613.533.6000 ext. 79173 or e-mail kristyn.wallace@queensu.ca at News and Media Services, Queen’s University.
