Volunteers from the non-profit organization "Community Health Initiative Haiti" are planning a trip to the region next week, just days after Hurricane Matthew killed hundreds in the country.

The group, which travels to Haiti five times a year to offer free medical care, had already planned the trip, but now they plan on bringing extra supplies to help with the recovery effort.

The group of 28 volunteers each plan to bring an extra suitcase of supplies.

The organization posted the following message on their website.

"For those interested in directly getting support to our friends in the battlefield, “CHI has a team leaving for Haiti on October 14th and each of the 28 volunteers going will pack one extra suitcase,” explains [Dr. Christopher] Buresh. “The extra suitcases will be filled by CHI with items requested by our partners at Harvest Field Ministries who are right now trying to board a barge to get to the most devastated area in the country.”
