EMT going to Haiti
I recently met an EMT in New York City who has volunteered her skills to Project Medishare in Haiti. (She is there as I write this actually.) Since 1994, Project Medishare is an organization that has been "dedicated to improving the health and overall well being of the Haitian people by re-establishing the health infrastucture and providing access to agriculture, education, clean water & sanitation, micro-credit in several communities in the Central Department in Haiti." The expense of bringing supplies and travel to and from the base in Miami is covered by the individual volunteers and their supporters. So I just want to give them a little plug here, and say I applaud (and support) the enormous effort made by her and hundreds of others who can offer their help in such an extraordinary way.
