Items Needed

We have acquired several vehicles to send to Haiti. Some are in great shape, some not as good. Fortunately we have found a mechanic that can donate his time, but not parts or supplies. These are the things we need for the vehicles that we have at the present time.


4- 245-75R-17 tires
2- or more 235-85R16 tires
8- 245-75R-16 tires
5 - 225-70R-15 tires and one 15” rim for jeep

All tires should be as heavy ply as possible for dealing with the lack of good roads in Haiti. Please call Kevin at 610-637-0202 to answer any questions or let me know if you are getting any of these tires. We need to have them by Friday Feb.19, as we will be putting the vehicles on the boat for shipment the 21st or 22nd.

Thanks to Bob, at Coastal Tire, 35 SW 1st Ave., Boca Raton, who has donated his time to repair the vehicles and mount and install the tires for us. And thanks to Greg at City Towing in Boca Raton for moving our vehicles where they need to go.

The following are items we have located that will serve us well, but we need people or churches that are willing to give them, or give towards us getting them.

A 2003 Mitsubishi Fuso Crew Cab diesel flat bed truck or a 2003 Ford F-450 crew cab utility body truck. Both would be converted to/or need to have dump beds installed on them. The trucks are $10000 each and the dump beds are approx $2500-3500 plus installation.

A Takauchi TB 135 Mini excavator with 360 hrs on it - $20,000.

A Komatsu PC35 Mini excavator with 2700 hrs - $10,000.

A Honda 500 XL on/off road motorcycle with less than 1000 miles on it - $1500.
