Mutual Aid Disaster Relief in Haiti Team One on the Ground in Haiti
Mutual Aid Disaster Relief in Haiti Team 1 has landed safely in Haiti and established themselves in the World Harvest compound. Their internet access is intermittent, but the latest available updates can be found at http://mutualaiddisasterrelief.org/reports.shtml
Summaries of the updates will be added to this article regularly.

Boston IMC's previous story on Mutual Aid Disaster Relief is at http://boston.indymedia.org/feature/display/209697/index.php

They have enough supplies for immediate operations, but will need to restock soon. They now have a Creole translator. Get more information and donate at http://mutualaiddisasterrelief.org/

UPDATE: MADRIH is now recognized as an official NGO by the UN, which gives them access to medical supplies and possibly an ambulance. They still need money for food and gas though, so please donate generously.
