AN AID worker has briefed the Secretary of State on how a hospital appeal is helping to save lives in a country torn apart by earthquakes.

Reninca Hill, trustee of the Haiti Hospital Appeal project, near Haiti island's Cap-Haitien, met with International Development Secretary, Douglas Alexander, on Monday to discuss how aid is being distributed and to secure long-term support.

Mrs Hill has returned from Haiti for two weeks to rally support for the charity based at Coney Baptist Church, West Wickham, where she is hosting an open event at 10.30am this Sunday.

Mrs Hill said she was "overwhelmed" by the generosity of people who have dropped off scores of donations. Organisations have given the charity beds, de-fibrillators and basic medical supplies, all of which is being sent by container to the stricken island of Haiti next week.
