After returning from Haiti on a recent Intervol medical mission trip, I am surprised by many things. Haitians still have such limited access to the basics - clean water, trash service and medical care. However, they remain proud of their culture. Despite the crumbled buildings, there is bright color and art in Haiti.
I am also surprised that so many people give of their time and expertise seven years after the earthquake. Almost our whole airplane was full with volunteers. This makes an impact but not only to Haiti but to those participating in the trip.
