Rescue, Relief and Renewal

The events of the past few days have confirmed what we have always believed, the helicopter was created for rescue, relief, and renewal.

The place they went today was unreachable by any vehicle. The road is destroyed and there are no airstrips for a plane. The helicopter made several trips delivering rice and beans until the weather set in for the afternoon.
"Thank you for coming - I have starving children"
I knew this fact, I had even see pictures of their desperate faces but until a man made his way over to me, hugged me and said those words, I did not comprehend the true depth of their situation. This is why Samaritan Air came to Haiti, this is why we are here.
