The March medical team has safely arrived in Terre Blanche. Most of the team is from the Northwest and one team member, from Ohio, joined them at the Miami airport before the flight into Port-au-Prince. All the team’s baggage, including supplies for the week ahead, arrived without any problem.
As they traveled out of the city, team members didn’t see huge areas of devastation from the earthquake but they did notice a large number of tents or tarps set up in the yards of people’s houses – a reminder that people are still fearful of staying indoors. Earthquake tremors continue to be felt in Haiti.
Once in Terre Blanche, the team was greeted with singing and a prayer of thanksgiving.
