Haiti: Day 3

By Julie Rearick

Today was a day of significant accomplishments, with the team digging more than 50 holes.

We mixed and poured concrete assembly-style like my good friends at KaBOOM!  Our playground has two bays of swings, a Playworld PupTent, a Vaquero swing, and PlaySimple#5.  With the help of 20 or more men from the tent community, we worked hard all day in 100 plus degree heat.  Since water must be ordered and delivered we worked many hours with no water to drink.  Dr. Berger from Lifechurch who runs the clinic, said the children are lucky to have one or two cups of water per day.   He also said when they register in his clinic many report they only eat every other day.  Such living conditions are so difficult for someone like me to imagine.
