Care Provided for 53 Haitian Orphans

The American Red Cross, Catholic Charities and UPMC Children’s Hospital have all pulled together to provide care for the 53 orphans that arrived in Pittsburgh this morning.
Spokesperson for the Red Cross, Brian Knavish says the children will be given cots to sleep in, teddy bears, toys, food, drinks, emotional support and medical care.
He says this collaboration between the three organizations for the purpose of these kids was a big step to take but was well-organized. The kids will be cared for at the hospital until they have a place to call home.
