Bones returns to Haiti

THE STORY:

As most of you know, two years ago I took a month long trip to Haiti with Bridges to Prosperity to help build a suspension foot bridge. for the past 2 months I have been working with the same organization to set up another trip and the pieces have finally come together for me. I am headed back to assist a team in the final stages of construction. The bridge is located in Cerca La Source in the Central Plateau of Haiti. These bridges help the local people during monsoon seasons when water levels go from a few inches deep to 10 feet within a day. During these high level times families get separated for days and many risk their lives in crossing to reach medical aid, school, trade, and get food. My main responsibilities while in country will be to arrange transportation from Port Au Prince to Cerca La Source and back for a team from Newport News using my experience and language/cultural familiarity. While at the bridge site I will be acting as both another grunt to help and lend my engineering skills with the project manager to assure correct design application. My time there will consist of 8 days onsite, 2 days for travel to the site, and 2 days before and after the team is there to prepare and assist the team in safety and ease of travel. I am sending this request to you because this trip, though relatively cheap, is quite a burden on my personal wallet. If you can help me out with the costs, I would greatly appreciate it. Any amount will help. Below is a basic cost breakdown: Flight roundtrip ~ $500 Housing in Country ~ $25 per day (12 days approx.) = 300 Food ~ $10 per day = 120
