I want to thank everyone who has already sent items for the container. Our Colorado Springs office has been busy shrink wrapping items and organizing everything for the container that will leave the office on July 29th.
Many of the items that we need are difficult to find in Haiti. Recently, Dixie on a trip to the States filled 3 suitcases with Soy formula because we could not find any in Haiti. None of our normal sources had received any new shipments and they were sold out. Unfortunately, we have several small infants who can only drink soy formula. She was able to bring 56 of the 36 oz cans from Target back into Haiti. Thankfully, she happened to have scheduled her trip at just the right time!
We still are unable to find soy formula in Haiti. The import businesses that bring Soy formula into Haiti say that it is too expensive and people do not buy it fast enough. I told them...BUT WE BUY IT! So we are still depending on getting soy formula on the container that is being shipped to Haiti.
We would like to fill this container the rest of the way with Infant Formula both soy and cow's milk based formula and premature formula needed, diapers, skin lotion, deodorant, liquid hand soap, rice and bean, school supplies, paper supplies, and anything you would want to donate from our needs list would be greatly appreciated.
