Footage from Israel Defense Forces field hospital in Haiti

We went out on this mission with... a true will to help... [and] that we already helped this woman [to give birth] makes me feel that I made a contribution.
— Major Efrat Shrir, nurse midwife

... And they named him [Israel]... to remember that this is the first baby that was born in the IDF field hospital.... [in an area] essentially like any delivery room although it is in a soccer field.
— Major Doctor Shrir Dror, gynecologist

It is heartwarming to see that so many countries are coming to the Haitians’ help. Thank you so much for coming to my blog and commenting. I am pleased that my post gave you the idea to visit Oakland Cemetery. If you can go back in early May when all the dogwoods are out you will enjoy it very much again. I looked at your blog which is very interesting. I read your post about your mother – it is quite moving. I wrote one about my mother ( who was born 12 May 1910) last year on her birthday – you might like to read it. Here it is: http://avagabonde.blogspot.com/2009/05/mothers-birthday-lanniversaire-de-maman.html. I hope you will come back to visit my blog. I’ll read more past posts on yours.
