Need probono delivery of water generator/supplies from Galveston or Miami to Haiti!


#1

I’m not sure if I am in the right place on the forum.

I run a not-for-profit called Haiti Aid Network (www.haitiaid.org). We have gotten a request to donate a 15k# water generator (creates potable water) that is too large for cargo and requires a lift capacity for its weight. It can be picked up in either Galveston or Miami and needs to ship to an obscure but decent port on the South Coast of Haiti, Jacmel. We will need 4-5 days to get the generator ready to ship. Approximately 100,000 people in the area are cut off from other aid. We are unable to find other organizations collecting physical donations. We will be notifying our donors of the port and will also load supplies and diesel for the generator. I will need to travel with the supplies to ensure delivery to the appropriate parties, but I’m easy to get along with, married to a merchant mariner, and a wicked good cook if it helps.

Thank you for any leads!

Tiffany

I can’t help. But I do wish I could. Best of luck. Someone here should be able to get you started in the right direction.

Seadawg, are you seeing this post?

Master Oceans 500 GRT will volunteer my time as crew if needed to make this happen

I posted photos of the port we need to go into pre-earthquake. I am still waiting for status reports of the dock now. If it’s usable, it’s the best bet to get aid into the south. If we can get aid in, I have a preliminary offer from another organization to bring down some helicopters and pull aid over.

referred her website and request to a retired Red Cross employee now consultant…said he would check it out??

Thanks Seadawg!

I can’t get through to anyone at Red Cross and I think my contacts at the UN were in the building that collapsed.

***Update: the dock in Jacmel appears to be able to accept boat(s). It has not been evaluated by a structural engineer, visual inspection only.

I may be available if you need a free deckhand- or a laborer:)
