I would like to give you an update of the installation in Boucan Philippe, this is the project in the Grand Cayemites island off the coast of Pestel in the south of Haiti.
The technical team composed of Wilson and Franklin left Monday early morning to the location and had a good trip until they passed the village of Beaumont already nearing Pestel. They had to spend the night of Monday sleeping in the Freightliner and Tacoma because the river had flooded with the recent heavy rains and about 75 vehicles including ours were stuck waiting for the river to lower its flow. They were able to get some food.
On Tuesday morning at about 11AM they were finally able to cross the river and continue on their way to Pestel. By last night they had already safely travelled by boat with all the equipment to the Grand Cayemites island. On the way back to Pestel to spend the night the rain was so heavy that it started to flood the little boat and everyone was taking water by buckets out of the boat so it would not sink. They made it safely across.
This morning early they were on their way back to the island to start the installation and they hope to complete it today if possible.
Wilson was saying that cholera is a very real danger in that area and this morning he saw two people arrive at the hospital in Pestel with last stage cholera. The hospital reported having cases every day.
Please pray for Wilson and Franklin safety and safe return to us.
