Many Haiti Relief Workers Also Quake Victims

From Michelle Hough, Caritas communications officer in Port-au-Prince:

“We meet with staff of Caritas Haiti and Catholic Relief Services’ (an American Caritas member) to discuss the Caritas response to the crisis. They went back to work immediately after the earthquake. As they tell us about how they’ve started giving people help with food and clothes, I start to realise how they themselves are victims of the disaster. Caritas staff have been sleeping outside since the earthquake. Many of them look exhausted. At night there is chanting in the streets and lots of noise.”
