Volunteers take musical instruments to Haiti
A pair of volunteers who have travelled to Haiti may have taken out musical instrument insurancebefore their trip.
The Grimsby Telegraph reports how Reverend John Fenner and Matthew Snow have departed on their second visit to the country in a bid to help locals.
Following last year’s earthquake, the good Samaritans flew out to fix an orphanage’s leaking roof, refurbish classrooms and remove debris from a schoolyard.
This time, the pair have taken musical instruments for the children to play and a trophy as a prize for the winners of an annual football tournament.
Speaking before his flight, Mr Fenner said: “While we were there last year we spoke to the volunteers to ask them what it was they needed most.”
He explained that during their time in Haiti they will work towards building an extension to the orphanage as requested by locals.
The earthquake in the country was recorded as measuring 7.0 on the Richter scale.
