I returned to Haiti two days ago. It breaks my heart to see that if anything, things have worsened. The supplies at Project Medishare are very very low and we have been instructred that we can no longer share supplies and equipment with outside organizations. Very little is coming in.
Food is now being conserved in case none comes. Apparently last week there was no food delivery at all. We were notified in today's morning rounds that we should not expect to eat 3 times a day. Sometimes the UN, which is just two miles away, sends us food, and sometimes it does not. (I lost 32 pounds on my first trip and returned to the States slightly protein deficient. Kleiman tried to pack protein powder for me but I jettisoned it in favor of TB medicine a friend had 'organized' from a Stateside infectious disease project.)
