VISA Teams: Haiti
Haiti Teams Notice: The Haiti Deployment Team continues to actively assess current conditions, including the cholera outbreak. At the present time, teams are encouraged to continue with their travel plans, but are urged to pay close attention to careful hand washing and to drink only filtered/purified water. Teams are also encouraged to pack their own food or buy pre-packaged food in the country and to avoid locally grown food. The Haiti Deployment Team wants those traveling to Haiti to carefully consider the risks and does not want anyone to feel undue pressure to go if they believe it is better to stay home at the present time.
Teams: A three-person team from the CrossRoads Community Church, Ottawa Lake, MI, will be involved in maintenance work at the hospital in Dessalines, Haiti, Nov. 2 to 9. Eric Messer is the team leader.
