That's my DAD!! Doing a great job!!!
I can only assume it's in a hilly terrain that is just not accessible...??
The area is very remote and it takes 1 1/2 days to get there. All these volunteers started work on the airstrip quickly with the wait.
Seems like one of those Aid-Worker "Because We Can" actions. Were those Pararescuemen? (PJ's) jump a lot and have combat medical training. They could get a flight from Florida, drop, and the flight can go home. A helo would have to land and refuel in Hait
Why not just drive, or take motos, or donkeys? You could bring more gear for less money? How are they getting out? Seems like a waste of money? Haiti isn't a war zone.
Be careful Ann if you are jumping hope the people of haiti get's the help they need take care love ya
Better late than never! What took us so long to do this???
