You asked about specific needs and I immediately thought of one. I’m not sure if this is a need you are going to fill, or if you have other people that are interested in helping-from your blog maybe? The orphanage we are staying at has only a few vehicles that in reality are being destroyed by the incredibly hard use they are experiencing right now. There are several medical teams here right now, Heli Mission and us, Samaritan Air. And everyone is using the vehicles to get around. I’m afraid when the dust settles and everyone leaves they will have a couple of junk vehicles and still have an orphanage to run. What do you think? Probably way beyond what you where thinking, but that is what came to mind. We are talking $15,000-$18,000 to get a good vehicle, the Toyota Hilux is what they drive down here. The orphanage is run by World Harvest Ministries which is a lady that has a heart for Haiti and survives hand to mouth. Its not like this is some big emergency but it is what came to my mind when you asked about specific needs.
Had another good day yesterday, very challenging but at least I wasn’t dehydrated, starving and sleep deprived. That always helps to have the basics. More of the same today, if we can get gas, it will be nice to go to places we have already been.Love ya, z
