Today the group spent time distributing goods and supplies to a large "Tent City." These cities spread all across Haiti since the major earthquake.
All of Friday's comentaries come from the journal of Michelle Chapman:
"Once we were driving up the dirt road to the tent city, people started coming out of their tents, especially the children. There was a sense of excitement in their faces. We each took a box and followed the leader to different tents and dropped off our boxes. The tents were made of tarps and sticks. It was VERY warm inside of them. Each had one bed with a blanket, a chair in the corner next to the bed and in the front right corner there was a “kitchen.” The kitchen consisted of a foot by foot area where they can put their pots and pans on a very small table. It would not be what we consider as a house... After passing out the boxes, we moved all of the children into the tent church. Here we passed out pillow case dresses, treat bags, and t-shirts. I walked up to this little boy, about 2 years old that had no clothes on. He was eating some crackers from his treat bag. He ate so fast that by the time I got to him the crackers were gone! An older girl, Sonya, proceeded to open up his other bag of crackers. She took 2 of them and gave him the rest. I felt so sorry for him. He was just standing there. No parents, no siblings, nobody specifically looking after him. He had nothing but the crackers."
"I knew this may have been the only thing that he has eaten in a while."
