Yoga Fundraiser for Haiti/Medecins Sans Frontieres

In partnership with Centre de Yoga du Marais, I am hosting a yoga fundraiser on Friday, 12 February with all proceeds benefiting Medecins San Frontieres/Doctors Without Borders.

MSF has been on the ground in Haiti for years, in the midst of all the political turmoil and previous natural disasters, providing Haitians with free, good quality health care.

Due to the earthquake, they are reporting that at least two of their medical treatment centers have been either completely destroyed or badly damaged (including the maternity facility) forcing them to move the surviving patients and set up outdoor tent hospitals. They are getting an overwhelming influx of critically injured victims and attempting to work in ghastly conditions. They also report that many of their staff were injured and not all have been accounted for since the quake, which assumes they are working short-handed.

I can't imagine what they are seeing and dealing with right now, but I'm humbled and impressed by their swift response. They are providing trauma healing and comfort deep in the middle of a situation that is unfathomable for most of us.
