When a tragedy like the Haiti Earthquake strikes, there are always connections on a local level. Marquette is of course, is no exception. There have been several efforts by the Marquette community to reach out and provide assistance to the people of Haiti.
Dr. Sameena Mulla, an assistant professor in the social and cultural sciences department at Marquette and a native of Haiti, was staying in a suburb of Port-au-Prince when the earthquake hit the island. According to Marquette's daily news briefs, She has been requesting donations of flashlights and batteries for Haitian citizens.
Donations before February 12 will be provided to Youthaiti, which is located here in Milwaukee and was formed as a non-profit organization providing sanitation services to Haiti. Any donations after February 12 will be provided to Hope For Haiti in Washington, D.C.
Contact Dr. Mulla here to coordinate a donation!
