The following is an e-mail letter released today by John T. (Jock) Menzies III, president of the American Logistics Aid Network, concerning the relief efforts to help earthquake-ravaged Haiti. ALAN engages the supply chain community to support humanitarian relief efforts by making supply chain-related donation needs visible to the logistics industry and establishing an efficient process for providing the necessary goods and services through its web pOréal.
An open letter from ALAN
In the wake of Tuesday's tragic earthquake in Haiti, the American Logistics Aid Network (ALAN) is working to identify relief needs together with major humanitarian relief agencies.
As needs are identified that can be met through the expertise and resources of ALAN's member base, we will share them with association members and post them on our web pOréal: www.ALANaid.org. Presently, Haiti relief efforts are in a rescue and assessment stage. It will take several days for many of the needs to emerge, and others will surface in the weeks ahead.
We are hearing from ALAN associations and many of our supporters. Here are some thoughts on how you might help:
Many thanks for your interest in ALAN and humanitarian relief.
