January 17, 2010 - Haiti Action Summary

Haiti Update January 17, 2010
...written and distributed by PDG Dick McCombe

Today’s update will be brief.

We got 11 flights off the ground and in the air for Haiti today. Of those flights, 10 will go into Haiti and one will go to Inagua. The flight time from Inagua is less than an hour and much easier for the small planes, so we are stockpiling there.

One flight has left from the BVI, and is going through Puerto Plata in the DR and on to Cap Haitien tomorrow. We are hoping that, after clearing in Cap, it can fly on to Pignon. We will know this later.

We have 3 pallets of Medical Supplies in Vero Beach, and are working on the flights to get that to Nassau and on to Haiti with our Bahamas Methodist Habitat partners.

T&C has organized some more Shelter Boxes, and they will be sent shortly. Nathan has a container on the way to Miami, and we will know more about the delivery method soon.

We have asked for an indication from the on-the-ground medical team for specific medical Supplies needs, and I will post for you as soon as I get it.

I believe Michael Terrelonge will be starting a blog for us. Look for his announcement.
