Tangibles: On January 19th, Michael Ritter and Jon Steele dropped off 600 buckets, 1,000 spigots, and 100 bottles of Klorfasil (a solid chlorine product) in Hopital Ste. Croix. These supplies will be the beginning of establishing safe water relief to the Leogane area. Leogane is about an hour from Port-au-Prince and was severely damaged by the quake.
The following supplies will be delivered by 10:30 Wednesday morning to a hanger at the Ft Lauderdale Executive airport for a flight on a private plane to Leogane.
9,700 spigots (20 large cartons)
2,000 bottle labels
8,100 bottle caps
1,900 8 oz bottles
5 Aquachlor AC100 generators
1 Aquachlor 25AC generator
The plane and the pilot time has been donated by David E. Lee, president of Air Shares Elite.
These materials will combine with 10,000 buckets produced in Port-au-Prince at a local bucket factory to provide systems that will provide clean water for thousands of Haitians.
Special thanks to Graham Huff for arranging for logistics and escorting the shipment to Leogane after just being airlifted from a mission trip to the island of La Gonave less than a week ago .
