Containers to warehouse
We are adapting the containers we have so that they can accommodate more stock. Will post a photo of them when we are done.
Why are we doing this? There's a ship coming in to Les Cayes next week. It originated in Maine where hundreds of Mainers provided it with humanitarian stuff: food, blankets, clothing, tents.. It then went to Boston for some prep work for the trip down here. Well, the Haitian community and others in the area heard about it and brought more humanitarian stuff. The ship will be in the Miami area early next week and will pick up tons of food, clothing, medical supplies through the generosity of Cross International. It is scheduled to arrive here in Les Cayes next Wednesday. We will be receiving the bulk of it which we will sort out and then distribute to 18 orphanages in the south as well as other non-profits. The vessel's name: M/S SeaHunter and the courageous captain's name is Greg Brooks of SubSeaResearch. Google this for more info.
