Whenever, I leave Haiti I leave Billy enough cash for the week I am gone. I used to have $300 hidden somewhere in the office for Billy to use in case of an emergency. It is my experience that $300 would cover any emergency. A couple of trips back, Billy had to use those hidden emergency funds and I have been unable to replace them. In an extreme case, we could send a wire transfer of funds to our bank in Haiti. But going to the bank in normal times is a challenge. During the current unrest, the banks are now closed.
