Reaching Haitian Victims Near and Far

Reaching Haitian Victims Near and Far

It goes without saying that in the wake of a disaster, stories of survival offer a glimmer into the devastation and the capacity of humans to overcome unbearable odds; our partners on the ground in Haiti are part of these stories, performing work critical to the lives of victims throughout the island.

The Washington Post today spotlighted Leogane, an isolated town 20 miles west of Port-au-Prince, which was mostly destroyed by the earthquake and where little assistance has reached thus far. This past Sunday, one of JDC’s partners, Heart to Heart International, sent a team of doctors and nurses to provide assistance to the people of Leogane, ensuring that those affected by this catastrophe received the medical attention they need.

Bravo to those medical professionals!
