With all the focus on the damage Hurricane Sandy caused in the U.S., it’s easy to forget that the storm wreaked havoc in other countries, too.

The non-profit organization Haven U.S. is planning a trip to the island of Ile a Vache in Haiti to help restore community buildings and facilities which were destroyed by Hurricane Sandy last October, and they are looking for volunteers to come along.

The trip leaves New York City on May 25 and returns on June 2, 2013. Volunteers are required to raise $5,000, which goes towards the cost of building materials, local community development programs, meals, accommodation and transportation.

If you are in NYC, Haven is holding an informational meeting at the Navillus offices, 575 5th Avenue, New York, NY 10017 on Tuesday March 12.
