Chambliss reacts to devastation

By Karen Cohilas - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) – United States Senator Saxby Chambliss says it's imperative that the U.S. do all it can to help those in Haiti. He says physicians and other Missionaries from Georgia steadily travel to Haiti to provide assistance there.

His office is busy fielding calls and trying to help get those people back to the U.S. He says there was already a short supply of food, clean water and medical supplies, and this disaster only multiplies that need.

Senator Chambliss said, "We want to make sure that we're doing everything possible from a US military to US aid standpoint, to give help and comfort to the people of Haiti, but this thing looks like it's just major, major from a disaster standpoint."

Chambliss says it will be the duty of top leaders to make sure the people of Haiti have all the financial and medical support they need.
