More on Day 3
The road is open and thousands of people from Port-au-Prince have started arriving. The streets are full of people and there's lots of noise. The local general hospital cannot take any more people and there are sick/hurt people everywhere, on the floors and in the parking lot. We sent a supply of drugs and alcohol as the hospital had completely run out. The town is not equipped for this wave of refugees from the capitol's devastation. We will be setting up a soup kitchen in town for the hungry using a supply of packaged, fortified food. Cross International and USAID have assured us that our supplies will be replenished. People are starting to respond to our appeals and money is coming in. Be generous as there are many, many people and we've only just begun.
