Our hearts are overwhelmed by the tragedy in Haiti but
this is not the time for tears.

This is the time to pick ourselves up, be active and join the
international community to help Haiti. This is the time to
be generous with time and money.  Those of us who
cannot go, you can help by contributing money and
supplies not just prayers.

Let's be brief and to the point.

We know the hospitals in Port au Prince cannot handle all
the injured.

The Knight Templars are making arrangements for a 30
seat plane and a helicopter to fly us from New Orleans to
Jacmel and then to La Vallee.  We are ready to staff our
hospital in La Vallee which is intact, well stocked with
surgical supplies, with 3 OR beds ready, a recovery room,
post op areas, a 30KWatts generator, a water tower and an
ambulance.

We need:  surgeons, orthopedists, anesthesiologists, nurses
     civil engineers, construction people


We need: antibiotics, analgesics, anesthetics,
antihypertensives, antiglycemics, IV fluids,
chlorine tablets,toiletries,  etc.

We need: dry foods: sugar, spaghetti, beans, rice, flour,
cooking oil, canned fish like salmon, tuna, sardines,
canned meats like ham etc

We need money to buy supplies and if you are hesitant to
send money ask your doctor or your pharmacist to help
you purchase and then donate the supplies ...

but DO something ... today Haiti needs more than
blessings and prayers.

Projected day of departure: Saturday morning Jan 16th
from New Orleans International Airport
