How to ship items to Haiti

This is how to ship things to my friends in Haiti or to me while I am there. It only takes a couple days longer than it takes the supplies to get to Florida, as the supply plane flies directly to their town on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Ship items to them at:
JeanJean & Kristie Mompremier
Unit 1072--UCI
3170 Airmans Drive
Ft. Pierce, FL 34946

The shipping fee is $1.50/lb by a check made out to and mailed to Missionary Flights International at 3170 Airmans Drive, Ft. Pierce, FL 34946. Write Unit 1072 in the memo. This covers the cost of the missionary plane taking the packages to Haiti, where Kristie picks them up directly from the plane.

But then a customs officer weighs all her packages and charges a fee per pound, so to cover that a check for $0.50/lb needs to be made out to United Christians International and sent to United Christians International P.O. Box 51 Orange City, IA 51041

Sounds complicated, but easier than lugging items on the plane!
