A Little Haitian Ingenuity

Below is a video of relief supplies being unloaded from the 220-foot ship that was carrying 10 containers from Cross International Catholic Outreach. The food, water, medicines, and other goods are now being used by our ministry partner Fr. Marc, who cares for 760 orphans, and they will also be distributed to earthquake victims in Les Cayes.

Because the southern seaside town has only a small harbor with a wharf that cannot accommodate large vessels, small boats were used to transport the relief supplies to shore. Loading the 20-foot containers on the little boats was quite a feat!
