Haiti earthquake devastates resort city of Jacmel

Any updated news on the progress of the relief teams in Jacmel and Leogane? I am sure it is heavy going and frustrating, but are the Canadian Forces and the non governmental relief teams making discernable progress? I hope all those on this blog who are looking for relatives and friends are not discouraged. As things improve, people turn up as "found". For those who are "reunited " through this blog, keep posting on the progress of loved ones.  (Jan 21, 2010 | post #120)

Haiti earthquake devastates resort city of Jacmel

here is more detail on the Canadian effort in Southwesatern Haiti: Haiti and the United Nations have asked Canada to focus its efforts in a region stretching from Léogâne, west of Port-au-Prince, to Jacmel on the southern coast. While the mission is humanitarian, Natynczyk said the troops would have rules of engagement to defend themselves as well as the United Nations and local police.  (Jan 19, 2010 | post #106)

Each ship will go to Kingston, Jamaica, once every six days to resupply. Report when the ships are seen and what is happening.  (Jan 19, 2010 | post #105)

Haiti: Destruction in Jacmel

Jacmel looks beautiful, at least before this terrible earthquake. Looking ahead and a little more optimistically, the town of Jacmel, it's airport and port might be developed by the "leave behind" facilities brought in and built for the immediate rescue and reconstruction effort. Jacmel will also be more "on the map", especially in Canada, that might result in other unforeseen benefits in the future, particularly in business, imigration and reunification [with the concommittant families ties] and tourism. We, Canadians and friends of the Haitian people have to see a future and to help Haitians see "blue sky" when they are able.  (Jan 19, 2010 | post #2)
