  2. We gave to Partners in Health (www.pih.org), as they have been there for a long time, they didn’t lose their facilities and they employ mainly Haitians – along the lines of “teaching a man to fish,” their clinics are staffed and run by locals. Fantastic book about the organization and its founder, Paul Farmer, “Mountains Beyond MOuntains” by Tracy Kidder.

Community Coalition for Haiti has set-up a restricted fund where 100% of the money will go toward helping those in Port au Prince. I intend to follow our three surgical teams once security is established at the hospital we are working with in Port Au Prince.
