Port-au-Prince has no sanitation department as far as I could tell. Words cannot describe the amount of trash that has filled that city. These pictures are an accurate description, however....
There is a system of canals that traverse the city. These canals are filled with trash... styrofoam food containers, soda bottles...more trash than I have ever seen. Just having to look at so much trash was depressing. I can hardly imagine what it must be like to live amongst the rubbish.
Invariably, in these canals, you would also see sights like this....
April 9, 2010 a group of 7 doctors, nurses and volunteers left central Pennsylvania and flew to Haiti... a joint medical mission through Cure International and World Surgical Foundation. I was fortunate enough to be a part of that group. Our mission was to bring free medical care to the earthquake victims and poor of that most unfortunate country. Join me as I chronicle that trip.....
Many thanks for the encouraging words before our trip. It helped to sustain us during this heart wrenching experience.
