This is a totally different post than my usual. But I'd be remiss not to post about Haiti. The people of Haiti have so been on my mind and in my prayers. I work with a number of people from Haiti and their immediate family members have been spared. One of my colleague's children -- a small boy and girl -- were with his family in Haiti and blessedly they are fine. Like just about everyone else I can't get the images of the photos -- and the people in the photos -- out of my mind, and I wanted to do something.
There are many organizations doing great work, but I came upon Partners in Health, via one of my colleges. I had the privilege of spending a year at Dartmouth and the President of the college has been greatly involved in this organization. I was very impressed with the work that has been done to provide health care in Haiti since 1985. Partners In Health: Haiti / Zanmi Lasante, and wanted to share it with you.
Blessings and prayers to all who are working so hard to bring aid in this tragic time.
