Kincasslagh man appeals for help in Haiti

A Kincasslagh man and his daughter hope to help the people of Haiti rebuild their lives in the wake of a hurricane which ripped through the country in recent weeks. 

Hurricane Matthew left behind a trail of destruction, killing hundreds and officials fear that the nation could be facing into a crisis.
Adrian Ward will travel with his daughter, Megan, to Haiti this April. This will be Adrian's tenth journey to the nation which has been hit by a number of natural disasters over the years.
“The biggest problem at the moment is food, water and sanitation,” Adrian said.
The houses which were built by Adrian, who works with the charity, 'Haven Partnership,' withstood the 145 m/p/h winds of Hurricane Matthew.
“We go there to build the houses but we teach them the trades too. It's about educating people about the principles of building and drilling for water. All of this helps,” he said.
The well known Kincasslagh man assures those who donates to the charity that one hundred per cent of the money goes to the charity.
“I know it's close to Christmas but every euro counts, it all adds up,” he said.
