Southern Maine Medical Center is working with a Cape Porpoise church to bring medical supplies and personal care products to earthquake victims in Haiti.

Eight missionaries from Church on the Cape are part of a Haiti-bound team from Partners in Development Inc., a New England-based nonprofit that has worked to build self-sufficient communities in Haiti for 20 years.

The group will bring 50 boxes of personal care items, as well as over-the-counter medicine. The hospital has already donated hydraulic stretchers, medical supply cabinets and an ECG unit. Employees have donated $2,500 to the American Red Cross and $5,100 to Doctors Without Borders.
