Making progress in Haiti

- After surveying 10+ communities we have found few deaths, but a 25% percent increase in average family size as relatives flood back from the cities. This, plus busted infrastructure/supply lines are creating an acute food shortage.
This week we are providing 10 lbs of rice and cooking oil to 1700 families, which will serve as 3-4 days rations. We are currently planning with communities to determine the distribution process and delivery will begin on Tuesday. Here is the breakdown for number of families we will serve in each region:
- Grand Colline 1104 families
- Bainet 483 families
