Also on the container will be supplies to help meet daily needs here at RHFH, like formula, diapers, kids’ clothing, equipment, linens, and the list goes on and on!

    I have a few blankets but I’m confused about “10 boxes max”. Is that all the room you have left in the container? If so, I will just bring them on our planned trip this winter. Otherwise I was going to get a banana box, pack it and mail the box to you.

    The warehouse secretary is only able to receive 10 boxes for RHFH per day.

    Lori, I have people wanting to send washer and items such as that to you. I was there in October and know what an endless job that is just washing everything. Is this something we can get to you? God bless your work. Haiti and the people there are in my prayers daily. God Bless!

    Though a washer sounds like a good solution, it pulls too much electricity for us to use here with our current energy source. Sorry! Thanks for thinking of us though.
