Bureaucracy is killing people, not bandits.

Need doctors more than anything. Word from our follow-on team is relief workers are not allowed to leave the airport without security details. Bureaucracy is killing people, not bandits.

  1. It would be very bad for the rescue efforts attempt to raise funds if rescue personell were attacked, injured. Consequently requiring a security contingent makes sense.. Failing to define what constitutes a private security contingent and make arraingments to provide the proper permits to PSC volunteers or Paid is the fault of the Hatian Government.

    Get the supplies in using Carribean Cruise ships they also have a good secure place (resort) in Hati to stage out of if you could
    get permission.
