A second team of medical personnel from Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center will depart Tuesday for Haiti.
A team of nurses will leave this afternoon as part of the relief efforts. Last week, a team of nine doctors and nurses headed to the country that was rocked by an earthquake. The team is working at a small hospital about 40 miles outside Port-au-Prince.
The death toll is now estimated at 200,000.
The folks from Dartmouth-Hitchcock are not the only locals helping out the Haiti relief effort.
Two young girls from Burlington spent their day off from school Monday raising money to send to Haiti. They spent five hours selling hot cider on Pearl Street.
Sabine Maloney says she and her mother came up with the idea as a project for Martin Luther King Day.
"Because there's an earthquake millions of lives have died. Lots of people have died and people need our help really badly because some people can't find other people to help them out," said her friend Mariposa.
The girls say the sold around 60 cups of cider and raised about $100.
