JPHRO

February 17, 2010

Sean Penn is our hero. Not only did he set up the Jenkins-Penn Haitian Relief Organization (JPHRO), he is heading back to Haiti to spearhead relief efforts.

“We’re within two weeks from the rainy season. People have in essence no cover. There are tent cities that are made from rugged tarps on top and sheets on the side. It’s an incredible fire hazard. The camps are wildly overcrowded, a breeding ground for infectious diseases. So what has to happen in the next two weeks… is to try to relocate as many as possible. People are going to die in mass if we don’t get those camps closed.”
