The Essential Haiti Traveler
Publisher: Eastern Digital Resources

If you are planning a trip to Haiti this book will be an indispensable tool.

I was working on this book prior to the earthquake which ravaged the country on January 12th. I have updated and checked the contacts listed and now offer this volume as a tool to the thousands of relief organizations and individuals who are going to Haiti.

The Essential Haiti Traveler is a handy pocket size with 122 pages.

All proceeds from the sale of this book will be used for water purification projects in Haiti.

Corrections, suggestions and additions should be directed to John Rigdon (Jrigdon@ngohaiti.com).
