Haiti / Haiteen
Wow! We just got back from picking up the barrel 😃 The barrel did have a dent in it but otherwise it was sealed and in good shape. We brought tote boxes and our hand fork to bring the barrel to our vehicle. We opened the barrel and packed everything into the totes. When we got back to the house we put everything in the kitchen and did an inventory. 100% arrived and nothing was missing from the packing lust Please let everyone know that we are very thankful. Thank you for sending the barrel 😃 The staff at FEJ are organized. Please tell everyone that everything came through perfectly. The prices in Haiti for things are very high. We used to get 120 gourdes for 1 us$ and now we are getting 60 gourdes for 1 us $. We lose half our funds in the exchange rate and prices in the stores are still being listed at the higher rate. The boxes of cereal you sent would have cost us 200 us$ in the stores in Haiti. This is a huge blessing for us. Thank you . Here are the pictures of the barrel as we received it and putting the food on the table for inventory. 😃 Thanks again and tell everyone that nothing is missing and we received everything 😃 It was a perfect shipment 😃
Praise God for safe travel and clearance through Haiti customs!
It is with great excitement that we share the arrival and some photos, ALL of the barrels on our first shipment have now been received, inventoried and readied for distribution to the appropriate locations for urgent use. You can see that this shipment contained the medical supplies donated by Peterborough Regional Hospital, in particular gloves for use during Covid 19 are so important.
The Mission of Tears partners on the ground in Haiti report, "We received 8 barrels .The pressboard barrel shipment arrived in good condition and Your inventory list corresponded. It was well organized on your side. Karen(Coram Deo) came this morning to pick up barrel # 3 . Plastic barrels are great. We can use them for multiple purposes, especially to collect water and as trash cans.".
