Byenveni nan Hinche, Haiti

Today’s our third day in Hinche. We spent the morning preparing for everyone’s arrival tomorrow and the afternoon unpacking and organizing our supplies into the supply room at the hospital.

After we finished, we explored more of Hinche. Hinche is the capital of the Centre department in Haiti and is relatively close to the border with the Dominican Republic.The center of town is only a 5-10 minute walk from the hospital. Most of the roads here are unpaved, and small bars/restaurants and stores line the streets. Many buildings and some churches are under construction, but the completed ones are painted in the brightest colors. Goats, chickens and dogs wander around amidst the lush trees. Before we headed back to the hospital, we made a pitstop at Eben-ezer Market for the essentials: snacks and $5 wine.
