I feel so helpless. Of all the places for this to happen why Haiti? The people are devastated. The international community is mobilizing, but no one can get into the country. So far, MSF has only been able to get 1 of 3 planes in. I think at this point the best bet is to support Partners in Health because they have staff and facilities already in the country that were not damaged. Their workers are in route to Port-au-Prince and they have warehouses full of supplies already in Haiti (according to Ophelia Dahhl's interview with NPR). However, MSF is coming with inflatable hospitals that will be absolutely critical.
God, help the Haitian people and let the aid workers be fast and competent.
