This is part two of an ongoing series, presented in diary form. July 12, 2006 - Today our team is preparing for another trip to town. There are a lot of us going so we're going in two, staggered convoys. We visit Downtown Baquba four or five times a week and each visit is a production. We have lost our Blackwater guys, my Personal Security Detail (PSD) because the Department of State said it was too expensive to keep them here (they were a bit upscale for us simple country folk anyway) so we all ride in HMMVs and have military PSDs. HMMVs are utilitarian and great for what they are. Luxurious they are not but they get us where we need to go. We don't get to see much of the city as wandering around isn't recommended by our local health practitioner. We visit (a) the Government Center, (b) the Provincial Council Building, (c) the Mayor's office, (a) and (b) again, (d) the Courts, (a) and (b) again and again and...that's where we go. We have gotten to know Main Street well and various routes to it Very Well. We catch intriguing glimpses of neighborhoods with walled gardens, palms and bougainvillea but mostly we see the dusty road, some government buildings, a few shops and not entirely enticing eating stalls. The Government Center has a wing that houses some of our American forces, so there is a clean bathroom, a DFAC or Dining Facility, and a place to relax. We (The PRT) also have an office in the main part of the GC which badly needs to be dusted. We're working on it. The Provincial Council building had none of these conveniences until the Chairman had a Western bathroom put into his office. If you're going to the Provincial Council, carry water. Don't drink too much of it. And who do we meet? The Governor, other officials, and people. Yesterday I spent time with Mohamed, a 25 year old whom we just hired to be our downtown rep. Mohamed, an English major from the city's private university, is a nice kid, bright and dedicated to doing something for his country. He had worked as an interpreter for the army until he started receiving death threats. These induced him to quit and he went to work for an Internet Cafe, selling internet connections to residences and businesses. In our first meeting he and I had a spirited discussion on whether the Iraqis were "bad people" as he had muttered under his breath, and one of the reasons he's decided to risk working for us is the glimmer of hope he went away with from our talk. if something happens to Mohamed, I shall be responsible. Yesterday Mohamed was feeling a bit down. Two of his friends were killed last week. He doesn't know by whom or why...possibly sectarian violence. And I have just learned today's trip is cancelled because a Council member was shot (first report dead, but now we learn he just has a broken leg) and an lED (Improvised Explosive Device) went off near the first PRT convoy to go out. It's another day in Iraq. Haitian Hospital Safe And Saving Lives helping the Harvard affiliated Operational Medicine Institute track patients and their care in a small town 52 miles outside of Port-au-Prince. Toff will receive his MD in May from University of California San Francisco and will continue his work in Emergency Medicine. Last year he had the amazing opportunity to complete a Masters in Public Health at the Harvard School of Public Health on a Zuckerman Fellowship. On Thursday he received a phone call from one of the doctors in the fellowship who is coordinating a very unique project as part of the relief efforts in Haiti. Twenty-four hours later he was on a plane to help. With many different organizations and volunteers helping provide care to the many in need, keeping records of the individual patient's care is crucial. This pilot project is designed to track the patient care in Haiti by using a new mobile device application which stores the patient's treatment electronically so that the next person who comes to the cot can quickly find the history of what has been done. Please see a video of one of Toff's friends Dr. Elizabeth Cote at http://www.youtube.com/ watch?v=05RUiCRRITo using Waiting at the hello-pad this technology in the field. Toff's current role in this project is as the leader of the follow-on team to help continue the efforts of Dr. Cote and others on the team. The blog at http://blog. opmedinstitute.org/ describes what this small volunteer team is doing and gives us all an inside view of the people that are doing good work to help make a difference, one person at a time. If you have been looking for a wayto help, please knowthat your donation will go to help a local boy continue to make a difference in the lives of the Haitian people as they heal and begin the process of rebuilding. You can donate Toff Peabody entering patient data into his iPhone directly to the operation on the website at http://opmedinstitute. org/(tax deductible) or directly to Toff at Toff Peabody, 3030 Holly Rd. Alpine, CA. 92021 (not tax deductible) to help him defray the cost of his expenses in Haiti. If you donate to the website, Toff would love it if you let him know about it by e-mailing him at toff. peabody@gmail.com. (NAPSA)-A glimmer of hope can be seen at one hospital in Haiti-and many Americans are trying to make it grow brighter. Haiti has been struck by the worst earthquake in over 200 years and hundreds of buildings have been destroyed, but one- HGpital Sacre Coeur (HSC) in the town of Milot, the largest private hospital in the north of Haiti- is up and running, saving lives and limbs. This premier Haitian health care facility has been a beacon of hope for the people of Haiti for 23 years, creating a healthier Haiti, one dignified life at a time. Given the enormous damage to health care infrastructure and hospitals throughout the country, HSpital Sacr Coeur is a major triage site for earthquake victims, who will be transported to the hospital by the Red Cross and the U.S. Navy. Volunteer medical personnel are on-site treating patients and contractors are building temporary shelters. Volunteer teams are arriving by private plane. As the number of earthquake victims continues to mount, there is a need for cots or beds and tents or portable buildings to house the additional patients. Every dollar counts. That's where you can come in. You can act now to help HSC with disaster relief efforts by contributing to the Center for the Rural Development of Milot (CRUDEM). To help, you can do0ate via credit card at www. crudem.org. According to one volunteer, "All of the staff are doing an amazing job in every possible way. In spite of the tragedy, there is a strong sense of hope in the air." Force may subdue but love gains, and he who forgives first wins the laurel. -- William Penn The staff at Haiti's HOpital Sacrd Coeur start helping patients as soon as a medevac helicopter lands in a nearby school soccer field. Sending Emergency Relief To Haiti Need For Aid Is Immediate And Great (NAPSA)--In the aftermath of Haiti's devastating earthquake, Americans are rising to the chal- lenge of providing assistance. After the earthquake, CARE launched a global appeal for $10 million to help the survivors. Aid groups estimate that 3 million people--nearly a third of Haiti's population--need help. The organization is now deliv- ering emergency relief to the area. It has shipped water purification sachets from nearby Panama to Port-au-Prince and deployed addi- tional emergency, relief staffto the capital, including personnel who were part of the response to dev- astating Hurricane Hanna in 2008. CARE planned an initial 104on distribution of hlgh-protein bis- cuits from warehouses in Haiti, enough for 60,000 emergency meals. The organization is also work- ing together with the World Food Programme, which airlifted 86 metric tons of additional bis- cuits-enough for half a million emergency meals--from its satellite logistics hub in El Salvador. "This is Haiti's darkest day," said Joseph Francoeur, CARE's project manager in the Haitian city of Gonaives. "This was a hard blow for Haiti and our colleagues. In addition to the emergency, we also need to think about giving people psychosocial help and assist them to rebuild their homes and their lives." During Haiti's darkest hour, Americans are donating money to help those in need of emer- gency help. According to Francoeur, the immediate needs include first-aid supplies, water purification solu- tions and emergency food. The organization began work- ing in Haiti in 1954 to provide relief assistance after Hurricane Hazel. 'Ibday's work includes pro- jects in HIV/AIDS, reproductive health, maternal and child health, education, food security and water and sanitation. While providing food and water is an immediate concern, provid- ing shelter will also become a pri- ority, as many of the country's inhabitants are afraid to sleep inside because they worry about earthquake aftershocks.
