Read more about the work this organization is doing in Haiti at http://www.bahamashabitat.org/wordpress/category/haiti/
Last week they saved an orphanage of 30 children in remote Haiti by delivering antibiotics on the back of a donkey.

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.
