We are picking up Dr. Peter Perez on December 27th in Florida. As our Medical Director, he gives IRG the credentials to ask hospitals for large quantities of expiring medical supplies, and he can verify their acceptability against set UN criteria for humanitarian aid. After three more weeks of refitting in warmer climes, we expect to commence pickup and sailing to destinations in the Caribbean where help is needed, in other words mid January 2013!

TANDEMEER is our only Caribbean vessel, and we're going to be extremely busy setting up a routine, finding crew and medical practitioners to support our mission. We already have links to nine other NGOs including the United Nations and Red Cross plus multiple small nonprofits to provide coastal and island support.

More later as plans solidify...
