Haiti Hospital Appeal offered a week long Jewelry and Craft Making course held at L’hopital Convention Baptiste D’Haiti in Cap Haitien during October. Three HHH SCI beneficiaries, Elieze, Linda and Solonge, were excited to be a part of this program.
The organization and execution of transporting our friends involved collaboration between CYAN (a British organization) to cover flight costs, and MAF (Ministries Aviation Flights) a local NGO aviation organization. Healing Hands for Haiti coordinated the efforts of all in order to transport the ladies to the North of Haiti.
Local operators are not really equipped to transport anyone in a wheelchair which highlights the need for accessibility throughout the country. With great team effort and flexibility on time, we were able to ‘load’ the girls safely onto the 12 seat plane that was charted specifically for them.
