Eleven (11) doctors and paramedics are attempting to make arrangements to fly to Haiti. The team formed quickly in the wake of the news of the devastating earthquake that hit Port-au-Prince nearly a week ago.

Getting flights and making arrangements for sending the team with much needed medical supplies keeps the team grounded here in Canada. We hope to have several flying out by as early as tomorrow with the rest following by the weekend or sooner.

Team members come from medical teams that have been a part of trips to Central America led by FTC Canada Medical Advisor Dr. Tony Brown. They also come through paramedic relationships with Ontario paramedic Grant Rumford who is currently stationed in Haiti and working day and night at the Mission of Hope Hospital. This will be the base camp for the medical team when it lands.
