Relief Work in Haiti




A friend of mine, Francoise, is from Haiti and what's left of her family is there. She's leaving sometime next week with a group of nursing/medical personnel through the help of National Nurses United and the California Nurses Association. Any donations to this organization are welcome to get more nurses to Haiti. Also RAM--Remote Area Medical Volunteers-- is looking for anesthesiologists and CRNAs who can leave immediately for the Dominican Republic to assist in surgeries needed for the victims. Both have websites, are on FaceBook, and both are keeping a blog/journal.

I have no doubts that those who come to visit this blog send their prayers and love for Francoise and to all those she goes to help. Right now we're trying to get her shifts covered and work with the hospital to ensure a position for her when she returns. That may require an act of God.

  6. God-speed, Francoise.

    I am trying to understand your last sentence, Distracted. You mean the hospital you work for may not hold her position if she goes? That's heartless.

  8. Thanks for all your comments and prayers, and yes, Rudee, there was some hint of that. The manager of the unit I work in is rather young and not experienced in anything like this. It's all been taken care of and Francoise will have a position when she returns.
