Sarah Palin Goes To Haiti With Samaritan’s Purse President Franklin Graham

Sarah Palin, Todd Palin and Greta Van Susteren joined Franklin Graham today on his trip to help those suffering in Haiti.

Samaritan’s Purse President Franklin Graham returned to Haiti today to survey our work with cholera patients, hand deliver Operation Christmas Child shoe box gifts to hurting children, and meet with staff.

Samaritan’s Purse teams have been working in Haiti since the country was devastated by a deadly earthquake in January. Still struggling to recover from the quake, the Haitian people have more recently suffered from the growing cholera epidemic that has already claimed more than 2,000 lives and from the hurricane that pummeled the island nation in November.

“I don’t know of any people in recent years who have suffered more, and in such a short period of time than the people of this small country—with an earthquake, a hurricane, and now a cholera epidemic,” Graham said.
I am pleased that Gov. Palin will accompany us on a brief trip to Haiti this weekend, and I appreciate her willingness to visit Haiti during such troubled times,” Graham said. “I believe Gov. Palin will be a great encouragement to the people of Haiti and to the organizations, both government and private, working so hard to provide desperately needed relief."

Remember the promises from Barack and Michelle Obama to the Haitians that they wouldn’t be forgotten? Not a word from either on the cholera crisis, which was likely brought there by the UN Peacekeepers. CDC is over there, but playing down the UN link to the epidemic.

Palin said the following about the Haiti visit:

I've really enjoyed meeting this community...They are so full of joy. We are so fortunate in America and we are responsible for helping those less fortunate. Samaritan's Purse is still here doing the tough work.


Wild Thing's comment........

God bless Sarah and her family and I am glad Greta from FOX News is in there too. Greta has been great to Sarah and shown her a lot of well deserved respect. I am not positive, but I heard Greta's husband help set up SarahPac...not sure though.

But it shows how Sarah has an effect on good people. Of course the yukky people will never like her, they only threaten her, but good people can see Sarah is for real. Todd is great too I love how he is strong and supportive and does his thing and yet is there as a team with Sarah for the important things too.

Franklin Graham is so great, too.

He and his Samaritan's Purse have been going to Haiti for decades, and long before it became popular.

(Like his father, he is well educated in matters of faith and religion. Franklin Graham has never backed down from his description of Islam as, "wicked and evil". A learned man of courage with straight talk, he knows what he's talking about. Within Islam, they cannot police their own. Besides, when have you ever seen or heard of a group of Muslims doing charitable work for others in need ?)

While others play to the cameras in passing, Samaritan's Purse has been doing their work quietly and effectively, there for the long run, when the need is real, and particularly now when this cholera has killed more than the storms and earthquakes combined. That's the real situation seen by solid men like Franklin Graham, and not seen or heard in our media:
