MSF report from Haiti
Surgical teams of the international medical charity Médecins sans Frontières (MSF) are continuing to work round the clock to treat victims of the devastating earthquake in Haiti.
Two MSF operating theatres have been opened in the grounds of the wrecked Trinité hospital in the city. With patients being treated under makeshift shelters, doctors have been carrying out an average of 25 surgical operations daily. Now they are performing operations in an improvised operating theatre in a shipping container, where they hope to carry out another 20 procedures per day. One anaesthetist compared the number of amputations to the Crimean War, or the American Civil War. Visit MSF's site for more details on how you can help the Haiti cause here.
