Jacmel and Cap HaitianWe have been working in Cap Haitian for almost one year, Jacmel one month. Since the earthquake, Jacmel, was underserved by most of the aid in Port au Prince. Cap Haitian has seen an influx of homeless and poor fleeing the devastated areas to the southwest.
We were flying daily to both locations within a week of the earthquake and will continue as we restock medicines (mostly antibiotics for secondary infections), walking canes, walkers, wheelchairs and crutches.
Haiti is not a handicap friendly area. Can't walk, can't work.
Our investment to date for medicine and supplies: $4,800
