  • [01] VOLUNTEER DOCTORS - HAITI

    Haiti still projects a hopeless and disheartening image, eight months after the devastating earthquake of January 12, Volunteer Doctors-Cyprus organisation say.

    Speaking at a press conference after the completion of the organisation`s second visit to the earthquake-ravaged state on September 27, Cypriot MP and pediatrician Stella Mishiaouli said she diagnosed an epidemic of psychological degeneration, while Katia Christodoulou, the organisation`s treasurer, presented the media with clay biscuits with which the inhabitants of the country deceive their hunger when they are short of food.

    ``As soon as we reached Haiti we were met by a discouraging image with the roads filled with debris, a transportation chaos, a suffocating sewage smell and about two million people practically pilled in tents with non-existent hygiene conditions, waiting for food and drinkable water from the UN,`` Olga Sophocleous, Secretary of the Organisation said.

    The mission provided medical equipment allowing for proper examination and diagnosis such as a cardiograph, a monitor and stethoscopes, machinery that could equip a dentist`s surgery, machinery for a full microbiological laboratory, medical aid, as well as medical treatment for orphans.
