Update: Chadasha Foundation #4

(Again, please be aware that some of the content is graphic.)

Update from Chadasha Foundation in Jimani:

Today, we are headed back into Haiti to take food to families that need it, and to go to an HIV orphanage. We hope to rescue some of the babies and take them back across the boarder to the Dominican Republic to our hospital in Jimani. A couple hundred people have been rotated through the hospital and we are trying to set up places for them to go back to in Haiti.

It is really hard to explain the devastation and loss these people have experienced. There are dead bodies stacked on the road, babies missing limbs, people are still being pulled from rubble. They pulled 17 from a market just yesterday. Thats seven days without food, water etc.

Things are getting better. There was electricity in spots yesterday. People are selling what little water they had and some food.

Also: 300 patients on site. 1000 including family members. Helicopters bringing in new patients continually. US military has been asked to provide structure.
