In addition to these details, we have received painful emails, commentaries, and images about the state of Port-au-Prince. We hope that the following two pieces will provide you-our supporters who now stand in solidarity with Haiti-a glimpse of Port-au-Prince. You'll note, as we have, the profound need for a sustained, long-term international response to this crisis.
An email from Dr. Evan Lyon:
In an email sent very early this morning, Dr. Evan Lyon documented his reaction to the catastrophe in Port-au-Prince.
Arriving in Port-au-Prince within 48 hours of the tragedy, Dr. David Walton met up withand (Partners In Health's Haitian sister organization) leadership to care for patients and pursue a coordinated strategy for medical relief.
