Update on Ardouin and Rescue Operations

Ardouin remains focused on conducting rescue operations.  Brazilian news sources credited him with being the one that found a victim, still alive, discovered and rescued on Sunday, 6 1/2 days after the quake!  Ardouin is now a principal player in coordinating Haiti's ongoing rescue and recovery operations.

Late Wednesday evening, I did receive an email from him.  In short, he noted that he is fine, but there is "great demand" for a tractor with loader and backhoe, in order to clear roads and remove debris.

I assured Ardouin that we are doing all that we can to get heavy equipment flowing. This is our highest priority!
