Update as of October 29, 2010 from Project Director in Haiti, Dieudonne Batraville:
While we are having good response in the Bertrand areas, Deschatelles, Bertrand, Bas Foss, Paran, etc, we are having problems now in the Haut de St Marc,: Guidchamp, Lalouere, Bali, Bois L’Etat, some of you know these places.
Bertrand is doing fine, we were able to get an organization SESAM to give them 3,000 gallons of water, we were able to get soap 150 cases of 24 oz to give in the villages and in the schools. Kids who were sick are alive now and feeling better, they have passed the worse, Thanks God.
Now we are working in the 4th section where is our main programs, where the orphanage is . We do not know yet what policy to take as the kids at the orphanage go to schools in the community. It is not wide spread but it is there and we have registered 1 death to date, this person had not followed the information she did not go to the hospital after seeing us. OK, we are keeping on working in the schools imagine 33 schools, staff is not enough but we are trying with the schools and door to doors to do the work.
It can be overwhelming but we are doing our best, it seems we are more equipped, more experienced now after the earthquake. It is just a question to get the infected person to the hospital, to get the meds etc. We had received medicines from other organizations, we are doing our best to do the Job.
I just wanted to informed you re : our progress, and to let you know that we are still counting on your prayers.
