After 111,000 in Mass Graves Funeral Industry to US “Let us in Haiti”-YourFuneralGuy

26 Jan

NFDA had no immediate response to Haiti Earthquake

With 111,000 to 200,000 in  Mass Graves in Haiti the US Funeral Industry is reeling from their initial wait and see response.

Some of the Leading Funeral Industry Organizations have gotten together  ask the US Federal Government to let Funeral Directors into Haiti.

This after Funeral Directors refused  an immediate response. It is  signifcant that there was not a Good Samaritan immediate response.

Here is a Snippet from the  latest statements from the National Funeral Directors Association(NFDA) on this matter.

“The members of NFDA, NFD&MA, CANA, CFSA and MBNA call on those in the federal government who are leading this country’s response in Haiti to take swift action by urging the Haitian government to allow the funeral service, memorialization and mass-casualty response communities in the United States and around the world to assist with the respectful and dignified treatment of those who died in the earthquake.”
