CRUDEM in Milot, Haiti

I love this organization: Hopital Sacre Coeur in Milot, Haiti operated by CRUDEM (http://www.crudem.org/).  The 75 bed hospital has about 300 people there now, mostly amputees.  They’re feeding and caring for those folks and family members.  The town is pitching in.  The school is a rehab unit.  Doctors are working round the clock to keep it all going.  Folks who are in the hospital don’t have homes to return to or, in many cases, family members to come get them, or even family members surviving.  Yet there’s a spirit of hope, an atmosphere of engagement, people bonding and helping each other, moments of joy when patients share their meager oatmeal portions with visiting doctors, language barriers are superseded and relationships forged.

Support them; money is going a long way there with very little administrative costs.

Who are the poor?  Who are the poor in spirit?
