Glenn alerts us to the efforts of some milbloggers for an entirely privately funded effort to get medical supplies into Haiti. Now they’re trying to get a medical team into the nation’s beleaguered capital:
We are seeking more private funding to pay for the plane tickets of a doctor and his 5 assts (3 nurses, one Army reserve combat medic, and a medical asst.) We need to get them to the airport at Port au Prince, where we will pick them up, and bring them to the Jesuit Refugee Service (JRS) mission. They have a well for fresh water and food provisions, though our teams are carrying in their own.
The total cost for flying in the first med team is about $11,000. The follow-on team is being led by Dr Maurecio Consalter from Masonic Hospital. Dr Consalter has kindly secured thousands of dollars in medical supplies/medicine from his friends in the industry. All he needs are plane tickets for his crew right now.
I just made a modest contribution and encourage you to do the same. Click on Donate.
