Smell of Death

January 18, 2010

Haiti Foundation of Hope board members, Dr. Joe and Linda Markee, are in Port-au-Prince working at a hospital not far from the airport. They are working with our partner agency, Medical Teams International. They have no running water or electricity and fuel is in short supply. Linda writes that “homes look like pancakes, electric wiring hanging in streets, rocks, nose coverings… When we opened our car windows the smell of death was evident… No one in Port-au-Prince is sleeping inside due to fear.”

As part of an assessment team, Linda traveled on Sunday to Leogane, a city outside Port-au-Prince. Leogane was at one time home to Joe and Linda. She writes, “Leogane looks like maybe she has 10 percent standing, while everything else is collapsed.”
