Jan Davis is in Les Cayes, a town of about 70,000 people about 100 miles southwest of Port-au-Prince. Her husband, Paul Davis, was expected to leave Hatfield this week to join his wife there. Two Northampton doctors, Ann Markes and her husband, Matt Kane, both of whom have worked in Haiti before, were planning to travel with him.The Davises are the founders of Mustard Seed Missions Inc., a nonprofit group that organizes teams of local volunteers who, about twice a year, travel to Haiti to bring medical care to several remote villages outside Les Cayes.
