Haiti: A sampling of the real news from humanity

Caution — some of this is explicit and sad. These are excerpts of actual pleas from help gleaned from an amateur radio database (cleaned up for privacy), all since 6pm CDT Jan 15.  Some of these calls came via facebook pages.  This will tell you how grave it really is. It’ll make you want to click and donate.

Just spoke with ***** by phone. There are now 100 people at his location. Approx. 50 injured personel. They are requesting Food,water, blankets and firstaid supplies.

I have just got a DIRECT_satellite rapport from the Swedish TV-team at TV-News. The reporter said that the help-work is near to collapse. Almost NOTHING is done for the common poor people. The rescue stuff seems to prior the work in the rich areas

There is a 60-bed medical hospital there and they have treated many patients so far but are running out of supplies, especially medical supplies.
