We had an extremely informative series of presentations about tropical diseases we might expect to see and a thorough orientation to Haiti, Bod Me Limbe. Now all we have to do is pack ;)
While we went loooong on our discussions Brenda our invaluable assistant managed to complete a scrapbook of our events and coverage up to this week. How she managed to complete that masterpiece in 3 hours I have no idea.
By the way I would like to thank the Red Rock Lodge for hosting us. I highly recommend it if you are looking for a place.
We have also begun working with an organization based out of Washington DC called Vwa Ayiti organized by Jimmy Felter who is doing great work in Labadie and recent completed construction of piping for a new water supply and the first of a series of Dry Raised Latrines. These ingenious designs are courtesy of an organization based out of Stanford called SOL. We hope to do a community survey in BML along with members of SOL (www.oursoil.org) to investigate the possibility of installing one of them there. It is all about cooperation and community sustainability.
