Thomasville, GA -- April 2, 2012 --

A Southwest Georgia Technical College professor is splitting time between Thomasville and Haiti and has inspired her students stateside to donate supplies to her Haitian students.

Martha Hanna is a founding member of Much Ministries Trade School Haiti. She splits time between Thomasville and Haiti, teaching a nursing program to students in the disaster stricken area. The Haitian students were low on basic supplies such as gloves, pencils, and books, but local students have stepped up and donated.

"I have 20 students in my class and the idea is to train them as nursing assistants, but if they can't get a job they at least have the skills to better take care of their village, their family, their neighbors, their community," said Hanna via a Skype interview.

She is currently in Haiti. Hanna usually spends three months in Thomasville and then three months in Haiti. For information on how to help, visit

    Jim...I am sorry you feel that way. Unless you have been there you have no idea what is going on. These are people just like you and I who have hopes and dreams and are doing the best they can with what they have. Martha is doing a GREAT thing in Haiti along with all of the other Much Ministries Volunteers!! Keep up the good works Mama Marta!

    Haiti. How long have people been trying to help Haiti? Forget it. Haiti is like a sponge, a black hole. They wanted and won their freedom in 1804. Now deal with it. This is a feel good project. A black hole.
