    Why not put all those abandoned FEMA trailers to good use by sending them to Haiti?

    Mr. Cooper, I am the President/CEO of an organization that cares for children and adults with disabilities. We are located in Miami, FL. Many of my employees worked at the St. Vincent Center for Handicapped Children. They are very concerned about the condition of this facility.
    My organization, along with other disability providers in south florida want to do whatever we can to assist this organization. We have been collecting supplies, and adaptive equipment. We now have at least 2 truckloads. We have been trying to arrange transport, though that is a challenge as the FAA has shut down air space. We are willing to deliver supplies, provide staffing assistance both short and long term. Any assistance you could provide in allowing us to make contact with this, or other organizations that care for disabled people would be greatly appreciated. I can be reached at 305-733-4915.
    Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the people of Haiti.

    Another great report from Sanjay!

    I can't believe that they are actually doing surgeries outside! That is just wild! I guess you have to do what you have to do though!

    It is sad that there aren't enough doctors, meds and supplies to take care of all of the injured. It's sad that some are dying when they could easily have been saved.

    I hope that they can get things rolling soon and get in what is needed to help all of these people and not just a chosen few.

    I watched both stories. Dr. Sanjay Gupta gives a tour of the hospital and the conditions in which hundreds of people are waiting for treatment. It's horrible! I'm thankful Dr. Gupta is there to lend a hand in helping the victims of this tragic situation.
    The other story broke my heart but, at the same time, made me smile. Seeing Dr. Gupta giving this adorable 15 day old baby girl some much needed medical treatment. I truly hope and pray she gets those antibiotics to help her fight off any infection. Thank goodness she was OK otherwise.
