Just a quick initial post to let you know that we’re on our way to Bangladesh. Mission director Brian Walker and quartermaster Dennis Bourassa checked in our 38 boxes loaded with medical supplies to change the lives of children born with cleft lips and cleft palates. It’s now 2:00am at the Dubai airport – 26 hours since most of us first gathered in San Francisco – and the final members of our team just joined us as we await our departure for Chittagong. We’ll arrive a bit blurry eyed but eager to get to work.
