Powell County organization already focused on helping Haiti

On Tuesday the eyes of the world turned towards Haiti following that massive earthquake. While people across the globe wondered how they could begin to help, the people at Children's Lifeline wondered how they could increase the work they were already doing there.

Headquartered in Clay City, Children's International Lifeline has been focusing on Haiti for over twenty years.They provide food, clothing, medical care and clean water to people in need. The organization feeds over 2,000 people a day.

While no one from the organization was injured, missionaries who are still in Haiti have sent back pictures of the damage done to the group's Haitian headquarters. The roof had collapsed and pipes burst, flooding the facility.

Two more groups of missionaries are scheduled to go to Haiti this month. With the airports badly damaged they aren't sure if that's going to be possible.
