Christiane Amanpour

CNN was here at Hopital Dela Communaute Hatienne today. The 82nd Airborne thought this hospital was destroyed. A few days ago they began patrolling the area. Apparently word has gotten around about the care we are provinding here. I have no idea how many hundreds of patients are here,but yesterday our wound care team saw upwards of 70 patients, both in the morning and again in the evening.  We are mainly still dealing with amputees, but have seen a few gunshot victims, women who have been protracted labour. There are teams from Sweden, France, South Korea, Jamaica, and several other countries, all of whom have committed to being here for the next 6 mo or more. I hope the response continues to be as strong, as this country mends itself.
