A quick note to say it is the end of a long day that started out extremely tense not knowing how the hurricane would go. We spent all morning being hurricane trackers. Much relief to see it clip Haiti and move on north. It did mean that I can begin my part of the training tomorrow, which we are all really pleased about.
This afternoon our team met to figure out how to jam the lost one and a half training days into the remaining ones. Although there is much less flooding than feared in the camps, the cholera epidemic is spreading with over 6000 cases and over 400 deaths. The massive push is the water and sanitation problem in the camps and getting polluted water chlorinated. I have complete access to clean water and only eat known cooked food, so I am fine.
