The Miami Dolphins are helping Haitian in South Florida reconnect with their loved ones in Haiti.

As part of a partnership with the University of Miami Global Institute/Project Medishare for Haiti, the Dolphins helped launch a program that allows Haitians in Miami’s Little Haiti to video conference with their families still recovering from the January 13th earthquake in Haiti.

“This impacts way beyond South Florida,” said Dolphins CEO Mike Dee. “It touches people and it’s great to raise money, which is certainly a big part of what we’re doing and what so many others are doing. But when you can actually connect to people and see the smiles on the faces of those family members who are going to see their sister or daughter or granddaughter for the first time in four months certainly brings a smile to your face here on Easter Sunday.”
