Ingrid, her friends and clients in Canada have spent an extra $1,500 to purchase more supplies for the clinic, plus travel and hotel expenses.
Want An Intensive Crash Course in Emergency Care?
This is a crash course in emergency care and keynote prescribing for Kati from France. If anyone else wants to pay their own way to Haiti, you would be grandly welcomed. There is enough place for you to stay. Edouard is recovering from an upper respiratory illness. Ingrid is surveying what needs to be accomplished with the house.
The Population of Haiti
Did you realize that over 50% of the population in Haiti
is under 21 years of age? They are one of the youngest populated countries on the planet. Now, there are 20,000 orphans from infants to 18 years old. Ingrid's intention. In time, the three-story house will be transformed into 'home' for 25 orphans with a homeopathic clinic, God willing.
The schools are now closed due to holiday season. This means that the children are on their own outside all day.
The Earthquake Aftershocks
Almost every day or night there are unexpected rumblings with tremblings of 4-5 on the Richter scale. This brings continued fear to the population. The building infrastructure is crumbling and weak. Kaviraj says these do not appear to be doing further damage to the house. They can expect the aftershocks for at least one year according to an updated scientific analysis by the U.S. Geological Survey.
Water is Precious
The only safe drinking water is purchased bottled water. All other useable water must first be boiled, that includes for bathing and cooking.
News media say the rainy season will not start for another month. But, this is only indicative of the major heavy rainstorms. The rains have started for an hour or two each day.
Electricity and Power
Energy is intermittent. Municipal power comes for one or or so each day, and then turns off as suddenly as it comes on. Fortunately, they have the small generator. Even when they will get the water truck supply onto the roof, they do not know that the pump will be in working order.
Heightened Epidemic Risks
A recent report says that Malaria will increase due to overcrowding in the tent cities, inadequate shelter and sanitation, overburdened medical facilities, and ruptured sewer systems. The clean up of the damaged areas is slow to non-existent. The stench from rotting bodies under the rubble fills the air. Improvised open-air rainwater baskets are good habitats for mosquitoes that carry disease. Reports indicate that insecticidal nets and distribution of drugs will be their answer. We must teach them about the homeopathic malarial remedies. So far, we have not heard reports of these epidemic diseases in the locations that have been visited by our team.
The other potential risk diseases include typhoid, dysentery, measles, tuberculosis, influenza, dengue fever and other respiratory illnesses.
The death toll now climbs to 300,000 and if contagious disease begins that number may go higher. Due to the aftershocks, people cannot go inside the fragile buildings and 700,000 are living outdoors in make-shift tents and tarps.
You Should Be Proud
Our tiny little group with little resources has acted quickly. This rapid response team can help thousands of people. They can send out bottles of remedies to tent cities. Based on news this week, there has been delayed action in establishing tent cities and much needed medical assistance.
This effort to resettle 1.2 million Haitians is not happening fast enough. Officials are sending people back to the damaged neighborhoods, where they have no water, shelter, or support systems.
Thankfully, they are well stocked for basic foods of rice, pasta, dried fruits and nuts. Vegetables are readily available at the marketplaces.
Treating The Sick and Injured
How can you treat 600 people a day? Using keynote signatures. The team asks questions and those who respond get into a group to be administered their remedy selection.
A wide variety of remedies are needed. Aconite, pulsatilla, lycopodium, argent-nit, nitricum-acid, sepia, natrum mur, sulphur, thuja and many more.
The Population and History of Haiti
Did you realize that over 50% of the population in Haiti
is under 21 years of age? They are one of the youngest populated countries on the planet.
Kaviraj was perturbed by the hundreds of soldiers who do
not seem to be doing anything to lend a hand. They are there, supposedly to maintain order, and to prevent riots and violence. However, Kaviraj mentioned that everything is peaceful. He explained that the people are submissive in nature.
Recent Independence of Haiti
Their nation developed from a history of slavery, and Haiti only became an independent free state 1804 when Britain fought France under Napoleon Bonaparte’s regime. Then in 1957, a new dictator, François 'Papa Doc' Duvalier was elected as President in Haiti and ruled until his death in 1971. Papa Doc even used a torture chamber constructed in the basement of his palace in Port au Prince to watch people suffer and established his own secret police force. After the death of Papa Doc, his son Baby Doc followed in his footsteps as a despot.
There is No violence, Riots or Disorderly
People the people of Haiti have been living in great poverty and persecution for many Now you can understand why Kavi says these people are very submissive in their behavior. They were not provided much of an education, the cities were poorly constructed, and the economy was in shambles. So, now they must rebuild from the very bottom up.
Thanksgiving During These Festive Holidays
I personally want to send gratitude to those who have already contributed remedies and monetary donations. I will be getting ready to send the HWC team a new Western Union soon. Please give now, so I can include your donation.
HWC has not yet attained non-profit status.
Please understand this is a pure giving opportunity
Help Establish A Homeopathic Clinic in Haiti.
We need to reach our goal of $5000.
