Clark Community Responds to Haiti Tragedy

9 Sep

In an entry earlier this summer, this blog commented on the tragic loss of three volunteers in a Haiti auto accident – Amanda K. Mundt, her aunt Diane Mundt, and Meagan Bell. They were killed in a collision while returning to Port-au-Prince from Les Cayes, a small coastal community where Amanda, an undergraduate at Clark University, had created a program for kids.

Also in the van were Meagan Bell’s parents. David Bell, the interim director of the university’s International Development, Community and Environment Department, sustained serious injuries; Beverly Bell scrambled to care for all the passengers in the minutes after the accident.

That was July 10th. Since then, folks at Clark have rallied to honor the lost and support those still with us; you can read about their efforts in the Monday, Sept. 9, Worcester Telegram.

“It’s about the community,” Mrs. Bell said. “They are still carrying us.”
