Day 1 Hurricane Havey relief. This is Leslie and Elaine. They had lived in their mobile home seen behind them for 20 years. The roof and walls are smashed, widows broken and all of their worldly possessions are soaked with rain water. I can only imagine that mold is starring to grow.

When I asked them where they have been sleeping they pointed to their mobile home and said “where else could we stay? There.” Allan motioned to the trailer. When I asked him what they were doing for light at night he asked me to follow him into the trailer. The interior of his home was as bad as the exterior. Alan then showed me a small flash light pen. The kind of light a doctor might use to examine a patients throat. He had to shake it a few times to get it to work.

Although the human spirit is resilient and strong, having the proper tools to remain safe helps so much especially in a disaster area.

When we were driving to our base camp last night, we were all so pleased to know that the last thing Leslie and Elaine would do is turn off a new and substantially brighter solar lighter light that no longer needed to be shaken to work.
