John Travolta Brings Supplies and Doctors to Haiti on His Jet

American star John Travolta has landed his own jet in Haiti carrying relief supplies and a team including doctors and Scientology ministers.

The 55-year-old actor flew the Boeing 707 from Florida carrying four tons of ready-to-eat military rations and medical supplies for earthquake victims.

Among those accompanying Travolta was his wife, actress Kelly Preston, The Press Association reports.

According to NBC Miami, the plane, which will leave from Florida tonight, will also be carrying much-needed medical supplies for the thousands of Haitians still nursing devastating injuries. The death toll is reportedly already over 150,000 people and many more could die without emergency medical treatment.

"We sent a plane down already, and we're sending another one down Monday, and I'm flying," Travolta told E! News. "I'm looking forward to that."

Travolta also noted that he would be directly involved with the relief efforts.

"We sent a plane down already, and we're sending another one down Monday, and I'm flying," said the "From Paris with Love" actor. "I'm looking forward to that."

Several other celebrities have already joined the cause. Angelina Jolie has donated $1 million to Doctors Without Borders, Madonna has pledged $250,000 and Lance Armstrong has given $1 million through his charity LiveStrong, according to Usmagazine.com.

Wyclef Jean, who was born in Haiti, has also set up a foundation, the Yele Haiti Earthquake Fund, which has raised over $1 million. Last Friday's multi-network telethon organized by George Clooney also raised $57 million, New York Daily News informs.
