HAITI UPDATE (Thursday PM)Rich Stigall
Today’s update by necessity must be brief. We know much less than what we do not know. What we do know is that all of the children in Port-au-Prince and in the south are safe. We also know that the situation in Gonaives is worsening by the minute. We have secured water purification kits that will provide one million litters of drinkable water. We are struggling to get this aid, food and other supplies into Gonaives. To help remedy this situation, we are flying Dony St. Germain by helicopter into Gonaives tomorrow (Friday) to coordinate relief efforts from within.
We understand that there may be a one day window of opportunity to get aid into Gonaives before the onset of Hurricane Ike. Tomorrow is that day. And tomorrow is the day that we are targeting for a significant push for relief when we have Dony inside of the children’s village to help identify creative ways by which we can deliver relief.
Please continue to pray with us. We will keep you posted.
