Governor Palin has arrived in Haiti.
Samaritan's Purse reports:
Franklin Graham surveyed our work with cholera patients, handed out Operation Christmas Child shoe box gifts to children, and visited a shelter community Samaritan’s Purse built in the aftermath of the January earthquake after arriving in Haiti on Saturday.
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is accompanying Graham on the trip. Last year, Gov. Palin joined Graham to hand out food parcels to families in Native Alaskan villages facing hunger because of a harsh winter.
"I appreciate her willingness to visit Haiti during such troubled times,” Graham said. “I believe Gov. Palin will be a great encouragement to the people of Haiti and to the organizations, both government and private, working so hard to provide desperately needed relief."
"I've really enjoyed meeting this community," Gov. Palin said. "They are so full of joy. We are so fortunate in America and we are responsible for helping those less fortunate. Samaritan's Purse is still here doing the tough work."
