Haiti: The Compromising Reality
In the New York Review of Books, Mischa Berlinski writes, “Dr. Megan Coffee, a specialist in infectious diseases, has a doctorate from Oxford in epidemiology and an MD from Harvard. In the immediate aftermath of the earthquake, Dr. Coffee came to Haiti where she discovered that the sanatorium had collapsed. So she established a new sanatorium at the General Hospital in Port-au-Prince, where she remains to this day, working without pay, riding public transportation to work, and treating, with patience, dignity, and remarkable professional skill, some of the most vulnerable human beings on the face of the planet.” He continues saying “If I were to give my money to one individual endeavoring to assist Haitians-endeavoring to assist anyone-I would give it to Dr. Coffee.”
