HAITI surgery relief operation

I've gotten the word, I will leave Honolulu tonight for Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic to meet with other Operation Smile volunteers and we will go by road to Fond Parisien orphanage site across the border in Haiti.   There we have a couple new operating rooms to take care of all kinds of surgical cases, including amputations, lacerations, broken bone, etc. etc.  I'm a retired Army Operating Room nurse.  There is a very good web site which has a blog from the volunteers at the camp.  The website is http://OperationSmile.org/Haiti    there are some good video clips of the orphanage and the operating rooms and tents, etc.  Must go buy mosquito repellent!  I'll return Feb 14th.  Aloha, Donna
