Hell exists and its address is Port-au-Prince, Haiti. It is not a place populated by sinners. No, it is filled with a millions of beautiful souls, who's only crime was the bad luck of being born in a place of such abject poverty and filth. A place where starvation abounds. A place where people live in hovels. A place where a newborn child has a good chance of contracting typhoid, or malaria, or polio. A place that, until now, had no medical care available for its millions of impoverished people.
Add to those conditions a devastating earthquake that destroyed what little the people did have.
This is the face of Haiti.
This is the image that touched our souls as we entered this place of disease, despair, and devastation.
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.
