KWTX TV's Gordon Collier Joins HLP on a Relief Mission to Puerto Rico!
HLP thanks Gordon Collier and KWTX TV (CBS) out of Waco Texas for joining us on this week's Puerto Rico relief mission! Gordon, who anchors the Evening News, and Photojournalist Neal Klaeser flew on our Citation with us into Ponce, where we all got a chance to accompany Kenira Thompson and her team from the Ponce Health Science University on a supply run in the mountainous region of Southern Puerto Rico. The story will air soon, and a few Facebook Live feeds have been broadcast which can be seen on our HLP Facebook Page. On this mission, we delivered tarps, solar panels and batteries, food, baby formula, water filters, and medicines. We traveled into areas that are still suffering tremendously with no power, limited supplies, and very limited medical care. The PHSU, in coordination with FEMA, the US Military, and local authorities set up another "Field Clinic" where patients were seen free-of-charge, by doctors, nurses, and post-graduate Public Health students. We (the pilots) also got to tag along and catch a glimpse of what happens AFTER we unload our cargo!
