Haiti: The Rubble Remains, The Wounds Still Fester

by

WE ARE HERE for the sake of each other–above all for those upon whose smile and well-being our own happiness depends, and also for the countless unknown souls with whose fate we are connected by a bond of sympathy. Many times a day I realize how much my own outer and inner life is built […]

Dr. Hyman’s Haiti Journal – Day 1: Beyond Horror

by

PLEASE NOTE: THIS blog is a reprint of an article that appeared on Huffington Post. This isolated, serene Caribbean island floated in a calm sea dusted by soft white clouds.

On a good day in Haiti, nearly half the population […]

Haiti Weather Report: Mostly Foggy With Rain Storms Expected

by

IMAGINE ALL OF the Federal buildings in Washington collapsing in less than a minute killing 30-40% of our government workforce, crippling the tax collection system leaving the government no money to pay salaries or overhead. Our government, which seems to barely work at full capacity with gleaming buildings and a gargantuan budget, would come to […]

My Commitment to Haiti

by

THE HORRORS IN HAITI in January 2010 hit me deeply, and the call for doctors, surgeons and medical supplies to treat the hundreds of thousands of wounded pushed me into action. There are few times in our lives when we can contribute to something larger than ourselves; the week of the earthquake felt like one […]
