Medical Team Mobilized

Forward in Health is responding to the earthquake disaster in Haiti by mobilizing a team of 12 physicians, nurses, and a marine medich/EMT. We will be working in Grande Guave, the home base of our directors Lex and Renee Edme. The area is 30 miles from the epicenter and was hard hit.
We are flying in on Delta Airlines Tuesday and returning Sunday. Our focus will be to triage patients in the area and treat people depending initially on severity. When we arrive we will have a better understanding on what the need is. We are unable to have much communication with Lex and Renee, but we are confident that they are already coordinating plans.
For this trip we will be bringing freeze dried food and water as the basic supplies are already running short. We will also bring protein bars, tuna fish, peanut butter, and other sources of protein for the children in the orphanage.
