    I have been working with the Mellon Hospital in Haiti and have plans for low cost housing, jobs at the factory to produce them in Haiti and the monies are available from US donations. How do we make it work. We, some of the hospital team are frustrated and disappointed that we cannot help.
    we are willing!

    • Hi Ralph. Sorry it’s been a while. I”m learning this social media thing and only now came back to this site. I’m connecting everything now. Anything new with project?

    • Why not partner with someone in Haiti like the Mellon Hospital. How about HELP, the Haitian Education Leadership Program, http://www.uhelp.net. I serve on its board. Sometimes all it takes is a good partner to get things off the ground.
