Haiti: Zanmi Lasante Clinic Staff Continuing to Provide Around the Clock Care
Posted on: Thursday, February 11, 2010
Zanmi Lasante staff continue to work around the clock to provide care to the many injured and sick still arriving at Port-au-Prince's General Hospital (HUEH), as well as at their clinics and at field hospitals they set up during the first week after the earthquake.
MADRE has been working with Partners in Health to provide Zanmi Lasante with medicine and medical supplies.
Andrew Marx, Partners in Health's Director of Communications, recently returned from Haiti. In his words:
"...inspired is what I felt upon seeing our Haitian partner organization Zanmi Lasante spring into action, doing what they do best—what they've been doing for over 25 years—working in partnership with the residents of destitute communities to provide quality health care and essential social services."
Staff at the clinics and the hospitals have noticed a change in the type of injuries they are seeing. Many people who sustained non-life-threatening injuries during the earthquake are now coming in to seek treatment. Doctors are very worried about the high numbers of people who are at risk of infection from untreated wounds. MADRE will continue to work with our partners in Haiti to respond to the needs of people affected by the earthquake.
