    People from Haiti, grateful for help after the earthquake, are volunteering for Staten Island storm relief duties. 

    The Staten Island Advance says about 30 volunteers from Haiti are rebuilding houses in an effort organized by the RWH Foundation.
    They were all affected by the earthquake and remembered so many Americans, especially New Yorkers, came down to help.
    A volunteer told NBC 4 New York that they wanted to return the kindness.
    Volunteer Anold Blanc says the New York City destruction brought back painful memories. His toddler daughter was killed in the earthquake, and his wife's leg was mangled.
    But he says he's glad to help because of everything Americans did for him.
