Haitian Update

Phuoc in Haiti - update courtesy of Erin Jones-Le
(see earlier blog for info about Phuoc and Partners in Health)

Phuoc got a flight to Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic for tomorrow (Wed.) at 11:45 am. It's a straight 4-hour flight. He'll stay there overnight, then will catch a bus (6-10 hours) to the Haitian border town of Belladere, where Partners in Health (PIH) operates a medical facility. I am sure that he will be on a plane full of people involved in Haiti relief, so my bet is that he will link up with them and travel to Haiti with a team. PIH reports that they have 13 operating rooms open in Port au Prince, and that things are going well for them. Not sure if they will send Phuoc there or not...the needs seem to be constantly changing!
