effort includes five emergency medicine physicians and surgeons, a nurse practitioner and three registered nurses.

The Jimani Project (Knoxville, Tenn.) is a nonprofit organization that provides medical assistance to the island of Hispaniola (approximately 30 miles east of Port-au-Prince and road accessible).

RAM is planning to make multiple flights from Miami with the C47/DC-3 to transport medical cargo and will also be trucking other supplies from its Knoxville headquarters to Miami to fill the pipeline. RAM's mission is being coordinated by Dr. Marc Tinard, a local physician from the Jimani Project.

RAM is accepting continued donations to support the Haiti relief efforts, which will help to pay for the aircraft fuel and additional supplies. Individuals interested in making a donation, c
