What to Bring

Important Items

Water Bottle

You will probably want your water bottle to be insulated due to the warm weather.

Personal medications

Mosquito repellant

Higher concentrations of the active ingredient – deet is recommended.


Packaged food is better to avoid ants and other bugs.



We recommend a cheap pair that you can leave behind at the end of the week.


Hand Sanitizer

$20-$50 Cash in Small Bills (Optional)

You may want to pay some of the Hatians who help you during the week.

Work Gloves

Men will want to bring a pair of heavy duty work gloves that are suitable for working with sheet metal.

Two Changes of Clothes

Laundry will be done everyday, so there is no need to bring a lot of clothes.
