Update from Joe in Port-au-Prince

Joe went to Port-au-Prince yesterday.  He met with various officials at the UN Log. Base, with MCC, and others.  The word from Joe is we are steps ahead of everyone else.  There are also reports that there are 20,000 people dying every day at the tent camps, so there is a need for some sort of mobile clinic, or field hospital at these camps.  We are looking at options on how to pull this off, and will call for additional doctors and supplies as soon as we can establish the logistics for this.

Joe remained in Port-au-Prince overnight, staying at "our" house where the teams will stay. We plan to meet up tomorrow when the pickup the team if not before.
