Associated Press reports on FFP aid distribution

An Associated Press article posted tonight mentioned Food For The Poor's distribution of aid from our Port-au-Prince warehouse:

"Outside a warehouse, hundreds of desperate Haitians simply dropped to their knees when workers for the agency Food for the Poor announced they would distribute rice, beans and other supplies.

"They started praying right then and there," said project director Clement Belizaire. Children and the elderly were asked to step first into line, and some 1,500 people got food, soap and rubber sandals until supplies ran out, he said."

Here is the link to the article itself: Click here
