Direct Relief Emergency Response Staff in Haiti to Coordinate Logistics

Brett Williams, director of emergency response, and Nate Brock, operations specialist, are in Port-au-Prince coordinating logistics and more for Direct Relief’s aid provision in country. The two are attending briefings with Former President Bill Clinton (right) as well as U.N. officials.

Williams has coordinated on-the-ground earthquake responses for Direct Relief during Pakistan’s 2005 quake and the 2008 quake in China. He traveled extensively through Haiti in March 2009, on partner assessment visits and to manage placement of three Hurricane Prep Modules across the country. (The emergency-aid modules were released for regular patient care November 30, the end of hurricane season.)

Brock, a Direct Relief staff member since 2005, has served in the U.S. Marine Corps since 2003. He served a six-month active-duty tour last year in Iraq.

Magellan’s in Santa Barbara outfitted Williams and Brock with donated travel supplies for their trip.
