The Fides News Agency reported last week that the hospital operated by the Camillian Order is one of the few medical centers able to attend to the wounded in Port-au-Prince, Haiti following the January 12 earthquake.
According to Father Efissio Locci, director of Health and Development for the Camillian Missionaries, the only hospital functioning is that of the Camillians. However, he added, “we are in need of practically everything.”
"The hospital is full. We need medicine, medical equipment for plaster casts, disinfectants and aid to buy food," Fr. Efisio told Fides.
