We are in the process of putting together a helicopter mission(s) similar to what was done after Hurricane Katrinaa to provide the following in Haiti:
· Rapid transportation of critically ill patients to medical care (to hospitals, to the airport for further transport, etc.).
· Transportation of medical supplies to points of need.
· Transportation of personnel to and from key points of need (hospitals, rescue scenes, etc.).
· Transportation of food, water and equipment (water purification equipment, etc.).
We are still working on logistics but already have thousands of doses of antibiotics, lots of other drugs, surgical supplies and other equipment ready to go. We are also working with Doctors without Borders to get these down to Haiti and go with them to provide medical services. If all goes well, we may be leaving this weekend.
From the political side of things, a friend sent these two links which are very enlightening regarding the Haiti issue.
