The hotel in Gonaive is now open and the flood waters are gone done significantly.
On Sunday, September 28th, 4-5 of us including a camera man from the media department will depart for Haiti and return on Saturday, October 4th . We won't have room to take too many items so we are focusing on medications to help the people who have sustained cuts and infections from walking in the flood waters. Primarily we need iodine which is good for cleaning the skin, Bacitracin and Neosporin are the over the counter antibioctic creams (Walmart's brand is cheaper) and Tylenol and Motrin/Ibuprofen are for pain relief. In addition, we need bandages and tape as well as small face towels.
Please join together to pray for us and each stage of our itinerary below:
9/28 - Depart San Francisco Airport
9/29 - Arrive in Port Au Prince and Drive to Gonaives
9/30-10/2 - Visit Love and Light School, Friendship Church; current homes or sites of previous homes destroyed by the floods; if able to locate a doctor there will be a 1-2 day clinic also; dispense over the counter medications; purchase and distribute beans and rice.
10/3 - Travel back to Port Au Prince and stay overnight
10/4 - Return to California
