Sammy skips practice, lends a hand in Haiti

Samuel Dalembert flew to his native Haiti yesterday to aid in the country’s earthquake relief effort.

The Sixers center is working with Project Medishare, an organization dedicated to establishing quality health care and development services in Haiti. Dalembert was excused from yesterday’s practice session and isn’t expected to miss tonight’s game against Portland.

Dalembert had planned to make the trip last week, but that plan was put on hold when he couldn’t get clearance to go to Haiti. He has also donated $100,000 and voiced a commercial for UNICEF.
