Unfortunately no, they are loaded with formaldehyde, been closed up since we, the taxpayers, bought and could not use them. The heat in Haiti will only cause the formaldehyde to outgas even more and it will made you very ill if not kill you.

The ignorance of unappreciative people is astoundingly wrong. After all this time, the chemicals in that insulation have dissipated to a definitely benign level. The original objections were exaggerated, but now, hanging onto further erroneous allegations is detrimental again to those in more need.
