AMDA Emergency Bulletin XI: Haiti Emergency Relief

Latest report on AMDA Haiti Emergency Relief:

Gonaives (Haiti): The team of doctors from AMDA Bolivia and a nurse from AMDA Canada completed their mission and left Gonaives. In exchange of AMDA Bolivia's withdrawal, AMDA India will be taking over the mission.

While the hospital was under staffed and insufficiently equipped, the team of AMDA Bolivia/Canada handled about ten surgeries daily with each day averaging 12-14 hours of work. The team said there were a lot of cases that needed a skin graft among external wounds and other orthopedic cases. It is also suggested that the ideal ER team should consist of a general surgeon, orthopedic surgeon, anesthesiologist or CRNA, RN and scrub nurse.

As described earlier, the mission in Gonaives will be taken over by AMDA India's team comprised of a general surgeon, orthopedic surgeon, public health specialist and nurse. The team will be arriving in Port-Au-Prince on Feb. 27th and head to Gonaives accordingly. One anesthesist from AMDA Canada will be joining them on the same day. Santo Domingo (Dom. Rep): While coordinating the incoming/outgoing relief personnel, AMDA's logistic team in Santo Domingo has been making arrangements for donations to the people in need. AMDA's representatives requested a local NGO, Plan Republic Dominicana, to distribute 150 sets of sanitary goods to Haiti.In addition, soccer balls were sent to a local NGO in Santiago that teaches soccer to the poor Haitian children in the area.

In the mean time, AMDA's prosthetic project is under way in Elias Pina (approx. 250km northeast of Santo Domingo) that aims to provide prosthetic limbs for Haitian victims as well as people of the Dominican Rep.
