We have two ongoing assessments in Haiti this week. Ben is in Limbe, observing our agricultural activities. We're supporting subsistence farmers, organized into cooperatives, with the assistance of the Belarus tractor during the planting season, which will be essential to increasing their crop yield. Food shortages continue to be reported throughout the country, and we remain focused on increasing the yield of Haitian farmers as the best way to alleviate the shortage.
Meanwhile, Kim is conducting an assessment of earthquake recovery operations in Port-au-Prince. She'll be meeting with Haitian and US officials, observing the operations of the recently-deployed industrial tractor, and conducting a needs assessment so that we can plan our next steps.
We'll be posting pics next week of our teams and activities!
