Second Airlift heads to the Caribbean

This second DC-8 flight to Carriacou Island, Grenada, is transporting a 12-person medical team, a mobile field hospital, and additional relief supplies and personnel. Please continue to pray.

A second DC-8 airlift bound for Carriacou Island departed our international headquarters, in the early hours of July 4 with an Emergency Field Hospital, an additional disaster response team and a 12-person medical team onboard, including doctors, nurses, medical technicians, and other personnel.

This will increase our capacity to provide non-surgical inpatient and outpatient medical services to the many suffering Carriacou communities, where homes and infrastructure were decimated within minutes of Hurricane Beryl’s landfall.

This second airlift also included additional supplies of shelter materials and water filtration in our continued rapid relief response to storm-devastated areas of the southern Caribbean.
