photos - various - part 6

We recently brought Miguelson to the University of Miami/Project Medishare tent hospital to see an orthopedic surgeon. They took digital xrays and told us that he needs care in the United States. Pray we can find help for him to correct the orthopedic deformity of both of his legs.

We visited a refuge camp near us this week and the people told us about a woman who had been burned 10 days before. During that time period she did not go for medical care.

It took some convincing to get her husband to accompany us to the Medecins Sans Frontieres tent Hospital on Delmas 31. Her back was infected and in serious need of debridement.

We see cases of malnutrition in the very young. This child is happy despite having orange hair from not eating properly.

Steadily buildings are being demolished one by one with work crews of men bearing sledgehammers. The demolishing process is going to take some time.
