Thanks for the update on your work and for your offer for more mapathons.
These will be needed for sure as we intensify our efforts in Canaan.

The Red Cross is very committed to ensuring strong connections with the
community. That part of the project is being handled by other Haitian and
American Red Cross folks based in Port-au-Prince. We do want to engage the
local mappers and are working to get some materials translated to better
work involve the local OSM community.

Any further advice or guidance you or anyone else has from OSM-Haiti is
extremely welcome. We will begin out field mapping work later this spring
and will have very large community volunteer presence.
