Planning our Next Voyage to Haiti

We have hardly had time to settle back into a routine here in Miami Beach, and we are already planning our next relief voyage to Haiti. We are driven by a passion to bring aid and comfort to the people of Haiti, now more than perhaps before our last trip, after seeing with our own eyes the scale of the devastation.

The rainy season has started and millions of people are living in the streets without food or medical care. Frequent aftershocks that make existing structures unsafe, contribute further to the anxiety of a population that has already suffered so much. The catastrophe that is Haiti, has merely begun.

Many people have asked if we think our small contribution to the people of Haiti has made any difference. I have dwelt on this question, and unequivocally the answer is YES. The people we have touched certainly think so. They have shown their appreciation in so many ways, and a clinic we brought supplies for, closed the day before we got there, after they ran out of life-giving medicines. Our small load, enabled them to re-open and continue to serve the community. Subsequent supplies have kept it open and the lives of people have been positively impacted. We can't help everybody, but we have helped a few. Thats why we are going back.

Our next voyage is planned to depart in about 3 weeks from Miami Beach Marina. Your continued support is always very much appreciated, and if we can be of any assistance to you or your organization in bringing aid and comfort to Haiti, please call Sharon at 973-309-1881 or by email, liberty.schooner@gmail.com
