and the pregnant cat.

I also made another trip out to Thomassique this week to visit St. Joseph's Clinic and the matròn program we helped start there. We are working on starting some inservice training there that will involve volunteers teaching and working with the three midwives staffed there.

Speaking of midwives, I recently chatted with my friend who just graduated from the MFH class last year. She is in Cité Soleil, one of the largest slums in the Northern Hemisphere. I asked her how her work was going (she is heading one of the Save the Children clinics). She replied, "Not good at all." She had not been able to go to work for two weeks because it was too dangerous. The overpopulated shanty town has many roaming gangs that threaten and kill people for money, food, etc. I hope the UN Stabilization Mission in Haiti can do something about this if the government will not.

its many service issues).
