Carrefour Port-au-Prince

20 Jan

We brought new life the clinic this morning with all the supplies we snagged late yesterday.  They are thrilled they can now do surgical procedures with local anesthetics.  People are mobbing me, showing me their wounds as I walk down the street.  Kids, adults, no one was spared.  Open wounds, crush injuries, and of course, mass infection from poor or no treatment for over a week.  It’s a sad fact that more will die from lack of care.  How do you treat open fractures when you can’t operate and there is nowhere to put them for recovery?
