Doctors Without Borders/Medecins Sans Frontieres

In the days following the earthquake, MSF teams treated more than 11,000 patients. During that time, MSF surgeons worked around the clock, carrying out more than 1,300 surgical operations, including 140 amputations. Amputation was always the last resort in the effort to save the life or limb of a patient. In some cases, however, there was no alternative.

In Jacmel, south of the capital, it is providing hot meals at 40 different sites and focusing efforts on helping people in hard-to-reach areas outside the capital.

A wide-ranging assessment is now beginning in order to provide information for more targeted distributions once this scale-up is completed.
