LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — St. Elizabeth School of Nursing students are heading to Haiti for a mission trip. Before they leave, they are collecting donations for the children they will help.


The nursing students are going on this mission trip with the Hearts Helping Haiti organization. The trip is from March 10-16. They will get a chance to see the cultural similarities and difference in medical care.

The group will visit three different orphanages during this journey. At each stop, the students will run a medical clinic to assess the children and provide them with treatment if needed.

The top items needed include children's chewable vitamins, no gummies, children's shoes and over the counter medications. This includes, but is not limited to, Tylenol, Benadryl, and tums. Cash donations are also being accepted.

"We don't get enough donations as far as vitamins," said "We like to have money to go buy the stuff that we need more of before we leave and we also use the money when we get there to go to their pharmacy to buy deworming meds and other things that we try to treat all the kids with when we go.

All donations must be received by Feb. 28. They're hoping to collect multiple 50-pound bags full of donations. There is also an option to sponsor a bag and pay for the baggage fees.
