MessageĀ from David J. Siler
PTPA Executive Director

PTPA Friends,

I want you all to know that due to the continuing challenges in Haiti, PTPA will NOT be coordinating a shipping container this Spring. Since it has been a few years since we've been able to send supplies, we are currently exploring alternative means to ship supplies, perhaps through a partner and possibly to a port other than Port au Prince, where conditions are safer. I will keep you apprised as to whether we can offer another option. But, DO NOT plan on the usual April shipment.

I have been in touch with a few folks in the northern part of Haiti this week and am told that the situation has normalized, with many schools back in session and people moving about freely and safely again, while conditions in and around Port au Prince remain very dangerous. Let's continue to pray for peace and harmony throughout the country.
