January 12, 2011, the first anniversary of the devastating earthquake that occurred in Haiti, is a national day of mourning in the country.  Over 200,000 people died and hundreds of thousands were injured that day.  1.5 million were left homeless, the majority of whom are still living in temporary shelters and tents in Port-au-Prince and its environs.  Lives lost, lives changed, a capital city destroyed, all in the space...

I recently returned to Jérémie, Haiti after spending several weeks in the US.  Here are some highlights of my visit there:

 

1.  The second annual Hope for Haiti fund-raising banquet was held at the Wisconsin Club in Milwaukee on April 17, 2010.  Over 250 people attended and it was an enjoyable evening for all, with silent and oral auctions, Haitian market, wonderful food and great company.  Much thanks to all the volunteer...

When Cherlie and I returned to Jérémie after our help with the relief efforts in Port-au-Prince, we did a little survey among our patients to get an idea as to how many of them were, indeed, affected by the earthquake.  Out of 74 adult patients surveyed, 74% of them (55 patients) said they had family members who had died in the earthquake.  Many of these were close family members, such as children, brothers and sisters....

“They’re back,” we heard.  “The doctors from Gatineau are back.”  “Miss Cherlie, Miss Cherlie – we’re glad to see you.”  Such were the comments we heard as we headed up the mountain from Jérémie to Gatineau last week.  Our absence was longer than expected, due to the earthquake and the time we spent helping with relief efforts in Port-au-Prince.  But, our patients were proud of the fact that we had been able to help in an...

Almost two weeks without internet connection has left me with a lot of catching up to do!  Cherlie and I were in Port-au-Prince again from February 6-17 registering with the UN, gathering supplies from various organizations and suppliers, packing up some of our personal belongings from Cherlie’s house and getting the big truck ready for the road trip to Jérémie.  Relief International is going to continue to use Cherlie’s...

Well, Cherlie and I are on the move again, back to Santo Domingo today and, hopefully, on to Port-au-Prince soon after that.  We spent the past few days in Florida, catching up on correspondence and paperwork, gathering meds and supplies and packing up to go back home to Jérémie.  First, we’ll be checking in with the Relief International team in Port-au-Prince.  They’ve been busy since we left, and have had several people...

After a whirlwind 12 days in Port-au-Prince, Cherlie and I arrived back in Florida on Friday morning, having “hitch-hiked” on another helicopter from Port-au-Prince to Santo Domingo and then getting a plane flight to Miami.  We felt a mixture of sadness and relief as we left the country we now call home – a country that had very little infrastructure one month ago, and now has none, a country where almost every person’s l...
