In Honor of 6 extraordinary Vets, on VETERANS DAY – the heart and soul of a 17 member mobile medical team in northern Haiti. Today they begin a disaster relief mission after severe flooding killed 10 people over the weekend.
Thousands were injured and hundreds of homes swept away. Three days of Heavy rain drove flood waters over the port city of Cap-Haitian. The team, from the Haitian Caribbean American Organization of Texas, is the first outside relief group to reach the area. In one week they’ll treat upwards of 2,000 people.
Two weeks ago Hurricane Sandy killed 54 people and destroyed 70% percent of the crops in the southern part of the Haiti. Sandy left the land so saturated that any large rainfall is a now threat. Yesterday new flooding also hit the southern part of the island.
