The barge set sail Friday afternoon. Puerto Rican authorities say that when it arrives in Haiti on Monday morning, it will be the largest single shipment of aid to arrive there since the January 12 earthquake.
The roughly 4 million pounds of food are enough to feed the people of Port-au-Prince for a week. Organizers say it would take 150 planes to carry as much cargo.
Let’s hope that the shipment gets into the hands of the people that need it.
