SPRING VALLEY - Residents living in the Haitian enclave of Spring Valley are stepping up to help those in the island nation affected by Hurricane Matthew.

The group Konbit Neg Lakay is looking to purchase essentials such as water, medicine and food in Haiti, instead of having it shipped to the country.

Relief workers from the group are expected to be in Haiti the first week of November.

Haiti is the poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere. When Matthew slammed into its south coast, it caused devastating damage to many communities and left more than 500 people dead.
