The bulk of this team will fly out of Ft. Lauderdale Florida on a shared charter relief flight with partner organization Cure International and should arrive in PaP on Monday night.  The second wave should arrive late Wednesday.  The team will be carrying with them as many surgical supplies as allowed by the charter company.  Scott has been instrumental is identifying exact supplies needed based on the cases he is dealing with.  This includes surgical saws & drills, medical forms, and disposables.

Good News
Update from Scott’s assistant in the D.R. reports that 4 planes worth of medical supplies and a surgical team has successfully landed in PaP and are on trucks headed to Scott.
