More from Haiti

Sister Marilee has sent these pictures from Hopital Sacre Coeur in Milot, Northern Haiti.

They speak for themselves, along with her note, no doubt quickly written among the busyness.

here are some pictures. Can you help get the word out that we need donations to improve Haiti's conditions.

Hopital Sacre Coeur is located in the town of Milot, about 70 miles north of Port au Prince. Although the distance seems short, it is a 7 hour trip by car – even before the earthquake made so many roads impassible. The hospital is starting to receive patients who are being transported there by US Coast Guard helicopters--
many very young children, along with adults. A large percentage of patients require amputations. The hospital is well equipped to handle what they will face in the near term. They have 2 operating rooms, a fully equipped lab, orthopedic/general surgery/and trauma teams from the US on site to augment 247 Haitian medical and non-medical staff. They can house 75 -100 medical personnel.

The CRUDEM Foundation (a US NGO which runs the hospital with Haitian doctors and nurses) has been in Haiti for more than 20 years and will be there long into the future. As you consider how you might help the people of Haiti, I invite you to take Sister Marilee's plea to heart.

You can learn more and donate online. I also just signed up as a fan on Facebook.

Thank you for your support and prayers.

Thank you so much for the update. The local and national news just seem to report on the area around the hardest hit area.
