Update from the ground

“We just loaded thousands of dollars worth of medicine, supplies and food onto a boat tonight.  These will be heading to the worst hit areas of Tacloban and we will fly there tomorrow morning at 5 AM.  It looks like we brought exactly what was needed.  Sadly many of the people are starving in Tacloban and have started to eat rats to survive.  We are headed there tomorrow, with:  2 Emergency Medicine Physicians, 1 Family Practice Doctor, 2 Dentists, 3 Nurses, and an EMT, now that the group below arrived yesterday.  The rest or our team arrives tonight and will join us tomorrow.

The team is heading in four different directions today.  We will be seeing well over 150 patients at our facility, per day. We are tasked with running a mobile clinic in Cogon and completing OSOCC’s assessment in Matag and Palompon.  We can always use more volunteers want to thank everyone for the support.”
