A Letter From Roland:

Bonjour  Tina,

Je suis tres touche par cette marque de sympathie. Oui je vais bien. Cependant, jusqu`a cette minute, je n`arrive pas  communiquer avec ma   belle soeur ses enfants et les autres membres de la famille qui vivent a Port-au-Prince. Les deux principales compagnies de telephone mobile sont egalement  touchees et sont par consequent dans l`impossibilite d`offrir leur service.

L`idee d`une levee de fonds est excellente. A Las cahobas le seul centre hospitalier est deborde par les blesses qui reviennent de Port-au-Prince. La nourriture et les medicaments se font deja rares. Nombreuses sont les familles a Las cahobas qui sont obliges d`heberger des parents victimes qui fuient Port-au-Prince.

Pour le moment a Las cahobas on a enregistre tres peu de cas de maisons detruites par le seisme. Il en existe quelques unes cependant. Toute la population Las cahobassienne est en deuil. Les gens sont dans les rues et ont ete oblige de veiller tres tard en dehors de leur maison les nuits du 12 et 13 janvier ecoules par crainte de secousses prevues pour ces soirees.

Encore une fois merci Gardons le contact.

Les toutes dernières selon Valéry NUMA

Aujourd’hui 14 janvier 2010, il était 7h 23 AM. J’ai essayé pendant plus d’une heure de temps de joindre au téléphone Valéry NUMA pour collecter les toutes dernières à défaut de capter Radio Vision 2000 sur le Net dont il est le rédacteur en chef. De le connaître pour son professionnalisme, ces informations sont authentiques et ont été vérifiées :

1. Marie-Laurence JOCELYN LASSEGUE est en pleine forme. Elle a pu laisser le Ministère de la Culture /Communication à temps ;
2. Le directeur général de la DGI, M. RICHARD est mort ;
3. Dr. Kelly C. BASTIEN, président du Sénat a été enlevé de justesse sous les décombres du Parlement et a été évacué après plus de 24 heures de temps sous les débris ;
4. Deux sénateurs, MM. Jean-Jacques WILBERT (Plateau Central) et Michelet LOUIS (Artibonite) sont morts sous les décombres du Parlement;
5. Le Ministre de la Justice, M. Paul DENIS est fracturé à la suite d’une chute de l’étage de son ministère de tutelle;
6. M. Micha GAILLARD (FUSION) est porté disparu ;
7. La Directrice Générale du Ministère à la Condition Féminine et aux Droits des Femmes (MCFDF), Me. Myrna NARCISSE-THEODORE a succombé sous les débris du MCDF écroulé;
8. Le Directeur de Institut Des Hautes Etudes Commerciales Et Economiques (I.H.E.C.E), M. BERRET est mort avec plusieurs étudiants et professeurs;
9. L’Université de Port-au-Prince est effondrée avec en moyenne 600 étudiants et professeurs et qui sont morts;
10. L’Ecole Supérieure de la Diplomatie (Chez Régis), près de l’Hôtel Christopher –QG de la MINUSTAH est effondrée.

Dans le monde de la musique

1. Le chanteur Gazman est vivant;
2. King Kino et Wyclef JEAN sont ceux qui mobilisent les uns et les autres sur le terrain en apportant leur aide efficace;
3. L’épouse de Monsieur Youri CHEVRY est morte ;
4. Le père de Mik AVIN est mort
5. Le promoteur connu, Joubert CHARLES est mort

Du point de vue institutionnel :

1. L’ENAF (route de Canapé Vert) est effondré ;
2. L’immeuble de l’Immigration (à Lalue) est écroulé ;
3. L’immeuble de la TELECO (pont Morin) est resté intact ;
4. Radio GINEN (Delmas 31) est totalement effondré.

Selon d’autres sources de nouvelles, l’odeur des morts commence à puer dans la ville. Les banques sont fermées. L’eau manque. Tout est nécessaire là-bas. Le restaurant Break Time (Pétion Ville) a servi de refuge le soir du séisme pour députés et sénateurs qui devinrent sans abri suite à cette catastrophe.

  14. Melanie, our information today tells us that there is active digging going on at the Montana. We are aware of several survivors having been pulled from the rubble today.

    If you have not done so already, we invite you to register your missing family members with the Foreign Affairs Department of their passport country as well as with the International Red Cross. Then we ask you to register your family member on the new database collector we have created for just this purpose: http://operationayiti.org

    We are collecting the names of survivors so that we can share the names of the people who we know are ok. The more people who can add to this list, the fewer people we will all be wondering about. Please share the names of the people who you know are accounted for.

    We will be transmitting your family/friends’ names out over twitter, but cannot guarantee any result.

  15. Hey everybody,
    we are looking for an friend, Olivia-Elisa Ananda Bouillé, who was at or in the Hotel Montana when the earthquake hit. We have no information about her!!
    Please, if anybody knows the smallest detail please let us know!

    Thank’s for your support!

    Melanie

  16. There should be a disclaimer on this list. We are taking the names as he said he saw her. If we publish incorrect information, PLEASE let us know as soon as possible.

    This list is not definitive. Our desire here is to share hope with people based on the names of people we can collect to tell everyone, hey, I got a text from so-and-so and they are fine.

    Please note, this list will be published in both French and Creole as soon as we can get the tranlations!

  17. Tiona, I did see Mimi’s name on the list. That’s why I left a message to say Thank you. Sorry if there was confusion about that. I thought there might be a way to get more news. Again, we appreciate what you are doing here.

  18. FYI: Mimi Barthelemy IS on the list of people who are safe and sound.

  19. We will add her to the list! Let us know if you hear anything else.

  20. Tina, I heard from a mutual friend that she arrived in Port-au-Prince on Jan. 5. That’s all we know so far. Thanks for your help.

  21. Margaret, if you can tell us what city Mimi was in, we can get questions out closer to where she was last known.

  22. I was trying to find information about an old friend, Mimi Barthelemy, who I heard was in Haiti when the earthquake struck. Thank you so very much for putting together the safe list. It was the first information I could find and a great relief. Our prayers and support are with the people of Haiti. Thank you for your work on their behalf.
