Rice + Beans = Medicine

Carol and I would like to express our heartfelt thanks for your overwhelming response to support our relief efforts in Haiti. Although there is not yet a final tally, we believe that donations to MedShare totaled between $35,000 and $40,000, matching our initial $5,000 challenge many times over. In addition, another $10,000 was generously donated to our friends at the International Medical Alliance (IMA).

Our hearts are filled with gratitude; however there is a continued, desperate need for help. IMA is still on the ground in Haiti with an immediate need to buy fuel to keep the hospital running and rice and beans to feed their patients. While the doctors were able to successfully treat many victims of the earthquake, it has become increasingly difficult to provide them with proper sustenance. It’s estimated that another $30,000 is urgently needed just to feed recovering patients between now and the end of February … and each month thereafter.

If at all possible, we urge you to reach into your hearts and into your wallets once again as we face this ongoing crisis…we must remain vigilant in our follow-up care. With your support, we will continue to do all we can to ease the pain and suffering of our friends in Haiti.

Peace,

Tom and Carol
