Truck taking medics into Petit-Goave yesterday was stopped for a while: an old guy shuffles out of the woods, taps on the window, says "water?" - the guide shakes his head and they drive on. Fifty yards later the truck stops again, the old guy shuffles up to it, says "water?" again and holds up a cup for the relief crew.

Good people are everywhere and they outnumber asshats. :)

As Bush said, "Just send your cash." Or at least don't show up in Haiti without thinking to bring a few bottles of water for yourself.

Thanks to everyone who has donated - I don't have the money right now to do so, but I'm hoping to go for a week through my hospital. Their first crew is going... today, actually, and we're going to start weekly rotations. I'll post up how it goes here, unless there's another thread for Haiti experiences.

Instead we have sent billions of dollars there over the years and not one bit of progress has been made to show for any of our hard work and good intention. As far as I am concearned they must sleep in the bed they have made for themselves.

If you read any of the colonial history of that area, you will quickly see that Haiti has never had a chance to make a bed for themselves. The situation is based in a long history of colonialism and oppressive regimes (supported by certain agencies within our own government) that have left the average Haitian in the state that many people are just coming to realize.

Hopefully, this tragedy will turn some things around and they will get some actual help in building some infrastructure instead of being exploited once again.

I found another way to help. It's free too, but involves some effort. Now I ain't positive it's a true site, but it does have support from The Berkman Center for Internet and Society and the United Nations World Food Programme. You answers questions from any subject you choose (chemistry, algebra, vocaulary, languages, etc.) and for each question you get right, 10 grains of rice is donated. You don't get rice taken away for wrong answers and it's honestly kinda fun.

If anyone want to try it out, go to http://freerice.com/

Hope this is okay..
