Now that I’m back in Minneapolis, our relief workers on the ground in Haiti will continue to post updates on our response. The first contributor will be Leora Ward, Emergency Protection Officer. Leora is based in Washington, D.C., and has been working in Haiti the past couple weeks. Her job is to ensure that women and children, who are more vulnerable in emergency situations, are protected and their needs are being met. Leora’s posts from the past couple weeks will go up tomorrow.

Thank you for continuing to follow this story. Even though media coverage has decreased, the needs in Haiti are still incredible. And they won’t go away any time soon.

We’re still working in Fond Parisien and Terraine D’Acra — giving medical care, providing clean water, setting up shelters, and managing the settlements. We intend to stay as long as we’re needed.

  1. Chris,
    I am a friend of Jo Burgoyne. Wanted to thank you for going to Haiti and helping those in need.
    Also, another friend, Bill/Paul Welden has been in Haiti for about 2 weeks and also with AMC. I see that you are back in Mpls. right now....thought I would check if you perhaps met Bill/Paul?
