IRG in the Caribbean

"Underfunding affects the response to cholera." - 1st item in the UN Haiti Humanitarian Bulletin - Issue 37, January 2014 http://j.mp/NdUF6p.

BREAKING NEWS 16-April: We have returned to our Miami base after 2,100 miles of sailing, having delivered aid to multiple charities in Haiti. Now preparing both our boats to repeat the mission.

Lower Keys Medical Center and Mount Sinai Medical Center donated many pallets of medical supplies. Our boats were filled!

We have two boats bound for the Caribbean from Florida. IRG S/V Tandemeer (56' marconi ketch) and IRG S/V Thunderbird 5 (97' gaff-rigged ketch).

This Group puts together all the information about this operation with volunteer crews aboard our boats to provide humanitarian aid while we are on operational standby in the Caribbean and disaster relief when needed.

We are transporting 1,000 cubic feet of recycled sails for the subsistence fishermen in Haiti, donated by Sails for Sustenance, and we will also transport 50 boxes of tools - 1,000 pounds - for Haiti Communitere.

Also, LaDonna and Terry Cutler, cruisers aboard Cherokee Wind from Colorado, gave some wonderful items for Thunderbird 5's inventory to take to Haiti.

Both boats are bound for Haiti departing from Miami, Florida to commence a long-term, multi-season mission in Haiti. We are looking for volunteer medical professionals and crew who can help, please email The Captain.
