RPI and TLC Heading to Haiti
Our 9 person team is counting down the days until we leave for Haiti. The sea container that left here in May arrived safely and is now in Rantlamouaie awaiting our team. Although originally slated to be sleeping quarters for orphans, the sea container is now being retrofitted as a patient ward for a new clinic in rural Haiti. More information on this change of plan will be coming soon. It was no easy undertaking getting this container to Rantlamouaie. A road actually had to be built through the rough terrain! Photo One: May 2012 - just a small portion of the supplies that were shipped in the container. Photo Two: May 2012-the container on the RPI campus. The students have already installed the insulation, wallboard and cut out the windows and vents. The container will have solar power so that the temperature can be controlled for the patients.
