YWAM sending emergency relief teams to Haiti

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - Youth with a Mission, or YWAM, immediately started coordinating relief efforts once word of the earthquake reached East Texas.

Members on the ground in Haiti are preparing for shipments of water filters and food. Then, they will fly emergency relief teams out to Haiti in waves, beginning with medical staff and counselors.

"Then, we'll start the construction phase by just, seeing what needs to be done and how we could help," said Debbie LaScelles, the Co-director of YWAM in Tyler. "We'll be coordinating our efforts with the U.N. and Red Cross, and other agencies that are there."
