The New England Patriots plane is headed to Haiti tomorrow, after a massive earthquake killed more than 2,000 people and hospitalized over 12,000 with injuries.
The plane is being loaded up at Logan Airport today, Friday, with supplies and major medical equipment and will fly to Haiti on Saturday, according to CBS. It is being estimated that more than 600,000 people are in need of humanitarian assistance, with rescue and recovery efforts in Haiti being slowed down by Tropical Storm Grace and roads that were destroyed by the earthquake.
“Haiti is now on its knees,” Prime Minister Ariel Henry said in a Wednesday video address, according to Reuters. “The earthquake that devastated a large part of the south of the country proves once again our limits, and how fragile we are.”
