GORDONVILLE, Pa. - A team of seven medics from the Gordonville Fire and Ambulance Company are going to Haiti to assist Hurricane Matthew victims.

"We’re just doing whatever we can. Get whatever we can get on the airplane with us to take along. So, whatever gets donated from now until then, but it's basic medical supplies," said Leon Fisher, EMS Chief.
Donations they are not able to take with them will be sent another way. The trip is being organized by the youth pastor at The Worship Center in Leola, Lancaster County. They have ties to Haiti.
"I'm on high alert and I wanted to be sure people can be there for them that they don’t feel along they don’t feel like nobody cares. I want them to know somebody cares," said Pastor Bryce Taylor, Worship Center.
The team will head out Monday and be in Haiti for six days. They will access the situation and decide on sending more people down to help. The church is planning their own mission to Haiti to help rebuild.

Donations for supplies are currently being accepted.
