MFP Team Returns to Haiti

On Wednesday, June 23rd, a Medicine for Peace team leaves for Port-au-Prince and Gros Morne, Haiti. The purpose of this visit is two-fold: A) continue to assess and report on the critical damage caused by the recent earthquake and B) oversee and assist our counterparts in Gros Morne with MFP's new Women's Health Program.

This past Sunday was not only Father's Day, but also World Refugee Day. Medicine for Peace asks you, our volunteers and supporters, to keep our neighbors in the Caribbean at the forefront of your thoughts. Thousands of refugees have fled from Port-au-Prince and remain in limbo. Haiti has fallen from the media spotlight but this is not an indication that the situation on the island is any less dire.

Please continue to check here for updates from Haiti -- MFP will be posting up-to-the-minute reports on the conditions in both Gros Morne and Port-au-Prince.
