My time in Haiti is winding down even though it still seams like there’s lots to do before I awake early Wednesday morning for the bus back to Dominican. Chief among them is to find some more tents and figure out what the heck the UN (WFP) is going to do with the food program. The latest has them partnering only with a select number of larger organizations and if smaller ones want food, they have to partner with those organizations, instead of WFP. You’d think that an organization that exists to distribute food in times of crisis would have a better plan than they’ve exhibited in the last two weeks.
In any case, it’s a nice day in Port au Prince. The team of four that arrived early last week were finally able to depart for Marbial this morning after a series of set backs that put them a day or three behind schedule. The most recent set back was taking two hours to load the truck yesterday morning only to find that the wiring to the starter was shot. Yesterday was not a fun day. But today they are off and I’m here blogging and devising a plan for the next 72 hours.
