We are currently scheduling a trip for April 2014 of technical volunteers to travel to Cap- Haitien to assist with water, sanitation and other improvements.
Currently, we have three engineers, a master electrician and a biomedical technician joining local Konbit Sante staff in Haiti. If you are interested in learning about volunteer opportunities, please contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org/207 347 6733.
The agenda for this trip is quite extensive. It includes:
The Justinein University Hospital recently moved the primary cholera treatment center ( CTC) for the north to the hospital campus. This emphasizes the increasing importance of providing water and sanitation services.
We will follow this report with direct testimonials from volunteer participants and photos of our work. In the meantime, please contact us directly with any questions or concerns at:

Due to changes in clearing customs in Haiti, we are going to suspend this project to help send a container of medical supplies to Haiti.
We have shipped fifteen 40 foot shipping containers to Haiti, and coordinated dozens of other containers and shipments for partners. However, it has become increasingly expensive to clear customs, despite that most of these shipments are directly donated to the Haitian public health system.
We are exploring obtaining clearance for shipments through a grant making agency: if this is successful we will be able to continue to send containers.
In the meantime, you can continue to support our work by donating equipment and supplies or by learning about our new campaign to Make Births Safe in Haiti.

We have an exciting opportunity starting February 18th where people who support the campaign can enter a sweepstakes to win a trip for 2 to the UK to visit the set and cast of Downton Abbey. See the attached flyer and visit the website for more details.
We encourage you to explore our approach to our work to make births safe in Haiti.
