Air Mobile in Islamabad - Met with the Governor - Headed to "Ground Zeros"!
October 29, 2005 - 7:58am (Pakistan time) - Islamabad, Pakistan - Report submitted by Joe Hurston
After 30 Hours of travel, 3 hours of sleep, a flight from Lahore to Islamabad, a meeting with the Director of all Relief Operations for Pakistan, the Vice Principal of the Medical College, then....a tremendous meeting with the Governor. The question asked to us was "What can we do to help you?" What a day!
Dan Carpenter with World in Need had arranged these meetings. Our Rotary connection, Shehzad made these incredible contacts. Joe Polozola gained great experience in helping to set and demo the Vortex Voyager TM. Together, our team really worked well together. The Pakistan Officials whom we have contacted have been so willing to help us to help in this terrible disaster.
Today our meetings continue. The Governor showed us the areas of greatest need. Our goal is to get the Vortex Voyagers TM into the hands of those who can make the difference between life and death. We will continue to work on the logistics of getting there.
Soon we will heading into the mountains. We feel the temperature beginning to drop here in Islamabad. Winter is coming. Over 1,000,000 are at risk. This is our mission. I will endeavor to get another update out this evening. God Bless You and thanks again for standing with us!!
