The B protomer binds cholera toxin to intestinal epithelial cells, and facilitates the uptake of the A1 fragment. The A1 catalyzed transfer of ADP-RIBOSE to the alpha subunits of heterotrimeric G PROTEINS activates the production of CYCLIC AMP. Increased levels of cyclic AMP are thought to modulate release of fluid and electrolytes from intestinal crypt cells.Program Evaluation: Studies designed to assess the efficacy of programs. They may include the evaluation of cost-effectiveness, the extent to which objectives are met, or impact.Antitubercular Agents: Drugs used in the treatment of tuberculosis.

Japan Earthquake 2011: Explosion At Nuclear Plant Tears Down Walls Of Building By By YURI KAGEYAMA and JAY ALABASTER. The nuclear power plant affected by a massive earthquake is facing a possible meltdown, an official with Japan's nuclear safety commission said Saturday. SENDAI, Japan -- An explosion at a nuclear power station tore down the walls of one building Saturday as smoke poured out and Japanese officials said they feared the reactor could melt down following the failure of its cooling system in a powerful earthquake and tsunami. "We ask everyone to take action to secure safety." The trouble began at the plant's Unit 1 after Friday's massive 8.9-magnitude earthquake and the tsunami it spawned knocked out power there. Pressure has been building up in the reactor – it's now twice the normal level – and Japan's Nuclear and ...

It was centred at a depth of 6 km 3.8 mi, about 10 km 6 mi from Christchurch, which had previously been devastated by another magnitude 6.3 M L earthquake in February 2011. The June quake was preceded by a magnitude 5.9 M L tremor that struck the region at a slightly deeper 8.9 km 5.5 mi. The earthquake produced severe shaking that registered VIII on the Mercalli scale in and around the city of Christchurch, destroying some buildings and causing additional damage to many structures affected by previous earthquakes. Rebuilding costs in Christchurch increased by NZ$6 billion US$4.8 billion owing to the additional damage from the quake.

... Geology.com News Rocks Minerals Gemstones Articles Dictionary US Maps World Maps Geology Store. Earthquakes New Madrid Seismic Zone Earthquake Hazard in the New Madrid Seismic Zone. Louis, Mo., and other communities in the central Mississippi River Valley region are vulnerable and at risk from severe ground shaking. There are historical accounts of major earthquakes in the New Madrid region during 1811-12. The geologic record of pre-1811 earthquakes also reveals that the New Madrid seismic zone has repeatedly produced sequences of major earthquakes, including several of magnitude 7 to 8, over the past 4,500 years. The key evidence for large earthquakes that occurred in the past are sand blows that formed when under¬ground sand and water erupted to the surface as a result of violent shaking. Numerous large sand blows over a wide area were created by strong ground shaking during the 1811-12 earthquakes. The New Madrid seismic zone is a source of continuing small and moderate earthquakes, which attest to ...

Shallow-focus and deep-focus earthquakes. Earthquakes and volcanic activity. There are three main types of fault, all of which may cause an interplate earthquake : normal, reverse thrust and strike-slip. Normal faults occur mainly in areas where the crust is being extended such as a divergent boundary. Many earthquakes are caused by movement on faults that have components of both dip-slip and strike-slip; this is known as oblique slip. Strike-slip faults, particularly continental transforms, can produce major earthquakes up to about magnitude 8. Image:HotelSanSalvador.jpg Image:Dueñas86.jpg Image:EdificioDario86.jpg The majority of tectonic earthquakes originate at the ring of fire in depths not exceeding tens of kilometers. Earthquakes occurring at a depth of less than 70 km are classified as 'shallow-focus' earthquakes, while those with a focal-depth between 70 and 300 km are commonly termed 'mid-focus' or 'intermediate-depth' earthquakes. A possible mechanism for the generation of deep-focus earthquakes ...

The evidence used to understand active faults came merely from historical seismic records that hardly collected data on the largest of earthquakes related to these faults. This is because faults in Spain are slow-moving and there is therefore much more time between major earthquakes to the tune of thousands of years compared to much faster-moving faults like San Andreas in California.

Japan Earthquake vs Haiti Earthquake March 15, 2011. Biases and Fallacies, Blog Topics, Charity and Philanthropy, Race, Society. Michael F. There has been a huge reaction to the Japan earthquake in terms of media coverage, personal condolences and anguish on social media etc etc. While that’s a good thing I’m very dismayed at how much less support was shown in the Haiti earthquake especially considering how much worse it was. Japan’s death toll is around 1600 at the moment. Haiti’s death toll estimates vary from 92,000 to 316,000 with most seeming giving an estimate of over 200,000. The number of people made homeless in Japan is currently unknown but this doesn’t seem to be a major problem from the news coverage. The Haiti earthquake made 1,500,000 to 1,800,000 people homeless. In Haiti, virtually no rebuilding has gone on and almost 2,000,000 people still live in makeshift tent camps one year on. Although most natural disasters carry some kind of turmoil in terms of ...

In an article originally published March 14th, New Scientist explains why earthquakes are so hard to predict, how seismologists have tried to foretell quakes in the past, and what promising approaches may lead to successful prediction in the future. Can earthquakes be predicted. For places with a high rate of historic activity, the chance that a quake will hit in a future period of several decades can be quite high. We have models that say in southern California over the next 30 years, the odds of having an earthquake of magnitude 7.5 or greater is 38 per cent, says Thomas Jordan, director of the Southern California Earthquake Center and a member of the Collaboratory for the Study of Earthquake Predictability. If the same models are used to calculate the chance of an earthquake occurring in southern California within the ...

(1/352) Indigenous perceptions and quality of care of family planning services in Haiti.

This paper presents a method for evaluating and monitoring the quality of care of family planning services. The method was implemented in Haiti by International Planned Parenthood Federation Western Hemisphere Region (IPPF/WHR), the managerial agency for the Private Sector Family Planning Project (PSFPP), which is sponsored by the USAID Mission. The process consists of direct observations of family planning services and clinic conditions by trained Haitian housewives playing the role of 'mystery clients', who visit clinics on a random basis without prior notice. Observations conducted by mystery clients during one year, from April 1990 to April 1991, are presented and illustrate the use of the method. In addition, measurements for rating the acceptability of the services were developed, providing a quantitative assessment of the services based on mystery clients' terms. Statistical results demonstrate that simulated clients ranked some criteria of acceptability higher than others. These criteria are: the interaction provider/client, information adequacy, and competence of the promoter. Likewise, simulated clients' direct observations of the services permitted the identification of deficiencies regarding the quality of care such as the paternalistic attitudes of the medical staff; the lack of competence of promoters; and the lack of informed choice. Based on its reliability since its implementation in 1990 the method has proven to be a useful tool in programme design and monitoring.  (+info)

(2/352) Human immunodeficiency virus infection in Haiti.

This article reviews human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection in Haiti. The evolution of the epidemic in Haiti, its spread from urban to rural areas, its varied clinical manifestations, and the attitudes of Haitian people toward HIV infection provide important lessons on understanding and managing this infection in a developing country. The heterosexual spread of HIV, particularly among the poor, is well-documented as is the role of other sexually transmitted diseases along with tuberculosis. Coinfection of HIV and tuberculosis have led researchers to study the effects of six-month supervised intermittent tuberculosis therapy both in controlling tuberculosis and slowing the progression of HIV. Various surveys and discussion groups about acquired immunodeficiency virus knowledge and beliefs demonstrate a large deficit in HIV education despite campaigns to educate the population. The great impact of HIV disease on morbidity and mortality in Haiti indicates that a great deal of work still needs to be accomplished and demonstrates the frustration in fighting the infection in countries with inadequate resources and infrastructure. Advances in HIV vaccine research seem to be the most promising option for developing countries such as Haiti.  (+info)

(3/352) Medical surveillance of multinational peacekeepers deployed in support of the United Nations Mission in Haiti, June-October 1995.

BACKGROUND: Multinational peacekeepers, both military and civilian, often deploy to areas of the world where significant health threats are endemic and host country public health systems are inadequate. Medical surveillance of deployed personnel enables leaders to better direct health care resources to prevent and treat casualties. Over a 5-month period, June to October 1995, a medical surveillance system (MSS) was implemented in support of the United Nations Mission in Haiti (UNMIH). Information obtained from this system as well as lessons learned from its implementation and management may help decrease casualty rates during future multinational missions. METHODS: Over 90% of UNMIH personnel (80% military from over 11 countries and 20% civilian from over 70 countries) stationed throughout Haiti participated in the MSS. A weekly standardized reporting form included the number of new outpatient visits by disease and non-battle injury (DNBI) category and number of personnel supported by each participating UN medical treatment facility (MTF). Previously, medical reporting consisted of simple counts of patient visits without distinguishing between new and follow-up visits. Weekly incidence rates were determined and trends compared within and among reporting sites. The diagnoses and numbers of inpatient cases per week were only monitored at the 86th Combat Support Hospital, the facility with the most sophisticated level of health care available to UN personnel. RESULTS: The overall outpatient DNBI incidence rate ranged from 9.2% to 13% of supported UN personnel/week. Of the 14 outpatient diagnostic categories, the three categories consistently with the highest rates included orthopaedic/injury (1.6-2.5%), dermatology (1.3-2.2%), and respiratory (0.9-2.2%) of supported UN personnel/week. The most common inpatient discharge diagnoses included suspected dengue fever (22.3%), gastro-enteritis (15%), and other febrile illness (13.5%). Of the 249 patients who presented with a febrile illness, 79 (32%) had serological evidence of recent dengue infection. Surveillance results helped lead to interventions that addressed issues related to field sanitation, potable water, food preparation and vector control. CONCLUSIONS: Despite hurdles associated with distance, language, and communications, the MSS was a practical and effective tool for UNMIH force protection. UN requirements for standardized medical surveillance during deployments should be developed and implemented. Furthermore, planners should recognize that if ongoing medical surveillance and related responses are to be effective, personnel should be trained prior to deployment and resources dedicated to a sustained effort in theatre.  (+info)

(4/352) Cyclospora cayetanensis infections in Haiti: a common occurrence in the absence of watery diarrhea.

Stool samples from a population-based cohort of mothers and children living in Leogane, Haiti were tested for Cyclospora cayetanensis from January 1997 through January 1998. Data on gastrointestinal symptoms were also collected. During the winter months of January to March, the infection was detected in 15-20% of the persons sampled. Most infections did not appear to be causing diarrhea and most infected persons had few oocysts detectable in concentrates of stool. The infection appears to have marked seasonality, with highest rates during the driest and coolest time of the year. It may be that in this tropical setting, high summer temperature is the critical environmental factor that influences the seasonality of infection. This study demonstrates that Cyclospora infections in Haiti are common in the general population.  (+info)

(5/352) Assessment of combined ivermectin and albendazole for treatment of intestinal helminth and Wuchereria bancrofti infections in Haitian schoolchildren.

This randomized, placebo-controlled trial investigated the efficacy and nutritional benefit of combining chemotherapeutic treatment for intestinal helminths (albendazole) and lymphatic filariasis (ivermectin). Children were infected with Ascaris (29.2%), Trichuris (42.2%), and hookworm (6.9%), with 54.7% of children having one or more of these parasites. Wuchereria bancrofti microfilaria were found in 13.3% of the children. Children were randomly assigned to treatment with placebo, albendazole, ivermectin, or combined therapy. Combination treatment reduced the prevalence of Trichuris infections significantly more than either drug alone. Combination therapy also significantly reduced the prevalence and density of W. bancrofti microfilaremia compared with placebo or ivermectin alone. Only combination therapy resulted in significantly greater gains in height (hookworm-infected children) or weight (Trichuris-infected children) compared with the placebo group. Combined albendazole and ivermectin was a more efficacious treatment for intestinal helminth and W. bancrofti infections in children and resulted in nutritional benefits not found with either drug alone.  (+info)

(6/352) The impact of economic sanctions on health and human rights in Haiti, 1991-1994.

OBJECTIVES: This report examines the impact of an economic embargo from 1991 to 1994 on health, well-being, and human rights in Haiti. METHODS: Data from surveillance systems for nutrition, reportable diseases, and hospital diagnoses were combined with survey data and interviews with affected women, governmental representatives, diplomats, and staff of nongovernmental organizations. RESULTS: Changes included declining income, rising unemployment, poorer nutrition, declining infant mortality, rising mortality among 1- to 4-year-olds, decreased attention to children's well-being and education, and family breakdown. Survival strategies among poor Haitians included changed dietary habits, informal-sector economic activity, moving in with relatives, selling domestic goods, increased informal unions among couples, decreased school attendance, and indentured servitude among children. CONCLUSIONS: The implementation of economic sanctions in Haiti resulted in extensive violations of rights; the impact was greatest on the most disadvantaged Haitians. Many Haitian and international supporters of democracy were unaware of the extensive negative impact that sanctions could have. The impact continues now, 5 years after sanctions ended. Modified policies reduced some of the burden of sanctions, and international assistance prevented what otherwise might have become a humanitarian disaster during sanctions.  (+info)

(7/352) AIDS in Haiti: a bibliometric analysis.

OBJECTIVES: In Haiti, AIDS has become the leading cause of death in sexually active adults. Increasingly, AIDS has become a disease of women and children. Previous bibliometric studies have shown the emergence of Haiti as a leading country in the production of AIDS literature in the Latin American and Caribbean regions. No information exists, however, regarding the type of publications produced, the collaboration patterns used, or the subject content analysis of this production. The purpose of this study was to gain insight into the construction of this literature production. METHODS: A bibliometric analysis regarding Haitian AIDS research was conducted in the AIDSLINE database for the period 1980 to 1998. An attempt was made to identify the patterns of the growth in AIDS literature, as well as the types of documents published, authorship, institutional affiliations of authors, and subject content. RESULTS: Results indicated that most documents were published in periodicals. The International Conference on AIDS obtained the highest frequency. The United States, Haiti, and Canada were the main productive countries. CONCLUSIONS: While nearly 40% of the records corresponded to ethnology-related articles, HIV infections, sex behavior, pregnancy, and substance-related disorders headed the Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) found. Main aspects of AIDS papers focused on epidemiology, complications, and trends issues.  (+info)

(8/352) Timing the ancestor of the HIV-1 pandemic strains.

HIV-1 sequences were analyzed to estimate the timing of the ancestral sequence of the main group of HIV-1, the strains responsible for the AIDS pandemic. Using parallel supercomputers and assuming a constant rate of evolution, we applied maximum-likelihood phylogenetic methods to unprecedented amounts of data for this calculation. We validated our approach by correctly estimating the timing of two historically documented points. Using a comprehensive full-length envelope sequence alignment, we estimated the date of the last common ancestor of the main group of HIV-1 to be 1931 (1915-41). Analysis of a gag gene alignment, subregions of envelope including additional sequences, and a method that relaxed the assumption of a strict molecular clock also supported these results.  (+info)

Secretary Napolitano Announces Humanitarian Parole Policy for Certain Haitian Orphans
Fact Sheet

On Jan. 18, Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Janet Napolitano, in coordination with the U.S. Department of State (DOS), today announced a humanitarian parole policy allowing orphaned children from Haiti to enter the United States temporarily on an individual basis to ensure that they receive the care they need—as part of the U.S. government’s ongoing support of international recovery efforts after last week’s earthquake.

DHS and DOS are working together to issue travel documents (either immigrant visas or humanitarian parole authorizations) for children who fall into the two categories described below. Once these children are cleared to travel, the U.S. Embassy in Port au Prince will facilitate their evacuation to the United States so they may be united with their American adoptive parents. 

Under applicable laws, unaccompanied minors entering the country without a parent or legal guardian are subject to special procedures regarding their custody and care. DHS coordinates with the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Refugee Resettlement on the cases of these unaccompanied minors.

All cases will be evaluated by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). Depending on their circumstances, and information available some children will receive immigrant visas with permanent immigration status and will require no further processing. Those who enter under humanitarian parole status will need to have their immigration status resolved after arrival.

Documentation of legal relinquishment or award of custody to the Haitian orphanage
Secondary evidence in lieu of the above
Evidence of suitability for adoption, which MUST include at least one of the following:

Given the severity of the disaster in Haiti, we understand that there are additional children that have been orphaned and/or separated from relatives and may also be in varying stages of the adoption process. DHS and the U.S. Department of State continue to evaluate additional eligibility criteria and will provide additional information as soon as it is available.

USCIS encourages U.S. citizens with pending adoption cases in Haiti to send us detailed information about their cases to HaitianAdoptions@dhs.gov.

What are some foods POOR people in Haiti make?


Hello everyone!

I have to do a religion project in which I have to cook.  I have to pick a recipe a poor person in Haiti would eat - typical staple foods. 

I found one on my school's encyclopedia websites, and it was Red Beans and Rice. 

Does anybody know if this is something an extremely poor person in Haiti would eat?  I think it would be, but it calls for some materials that seem costly.  I know that for poor people in some countries, salt is very expensive, and this recipe calls for salt. 

Can some of ya'll help me?
----------

While rice and beans is a staple in haiti, it can still be quite 
expensive for most people.  A lot of haitians (even the ones who are better off) make a porridge called "Mayi Moulin" that is made from corn meal. Corn meal is relatively cheap and most people already have the garlic, onion, and Maggi as they are standard in Haitian cuisine.  There are various ways of making it but this is the basic recipe.

Ingredients:
1 cup corn meal
5 cups water
1 minced garlic clove
¼ cup of finely chopped onion
1 tbs. oil
1 maggi cube
salt
scotch bonnet pepper (optional)

Preparation:
Sauté garlic and onion in oil in a pot
Add water, hot pepper, salt and maggi and bring to a boil.
Put cornmeal in the pot and stir constantly until there are no lumps.
Cover and let it boil for about 15 minutes
Once water is evaporated check to see if more salt is needed.
Cover again for 5 to 10 minutes and keep the fire on low
Stir again until the mixture is smooth .

**Cooked red beans can also be added with the cornmeal but the above recipe is the "bare bones" variation.

Another porridge like food is "Labouyi Banan" made from green plantains. It's usually eaten for breakfast.

Ingredients:
2 green plantains (washed since skin can be left on if desired)
1 ripe banana
2 cups water
1 can evaporated milk
1 can coconut milk (optional)
2 tsps vanilla extract
3 cinnamon sticks 
2 anise stars
1 tsp nutmeg
2 cups sugar (white or brown)
rind of half a lime (do not grate it, cut it into a strip cus you'll want to remove it later)

Preparation:
Cut the plantains (skin can be left on) into small pieces 
Add 2 cups water plus ripe banana and puree in a blender.
In a saucepan, add plantain mixture and bring to a boil on low medium heat
Add the remaining ingredients: evaporated milk, coconut milk, vanilla extract, cinnamon, anise, nutmeg, sugar, and lime rind.
Cook for 15 to 20 minutes stirring occasionally.
When finished, it should have a porridge like consistency.
Remove cinnamon sticks, lime rind and anise.

This is usually eaten with fresh bread.


Can we list the other ways to help Haiti without taking their children?


This forum is Haiti crazy.  Let's list all the other ways to help Haiti, and other third world countries for that matter.
----------

Thank you so much for your positive redirection of this "adopt a haitian child" craze. I am a Haitian American and while I was slightly happy that some children from haiti (already in the process of being adopted) found homes with their parents something just doesn't sit right with me about sending haitian orphans to the US. While there is a strong need to help these children I can't help but think taking them out of Haiti is not the answer. Yes for the millionth time Haiti has suffered from poverty and government corruption but the children are the future. Let's support organizations to rebuild schools, stimulate the economy, involve other activists. Help rebuild Haiti by donating, volunteering, and spreading the message to others.


Is there a place to watch unfolding info on Haiti adoptions?


On CNN they are talking about how no one knows what to do with all the orphaned children in Haiti. 
Some people have the opinion that they will go to their nearest relatives but many relatives are saying that they just can't afford it. Either way there will be a lot of children who need unconditional love and care that cannot be found in Haiti. The children who have come to the US already look so happy! Clinton urged adoptions to be expedited but how do I find a place with formal information on this?
----------

Since it looks like you already have a young child (from your other questions) you might want to look at whether you could handle two children while yours is barley 8 months....And instead of fighting to get these adoptions hurried why dont you donate to a fund that will reunite them with their families! 

They need help...real help. not a quick fix of "oh here i'll just take you". They dont just need to be shipped out. Of course all the children that you have seen on CNN that have come to the US look thrilled...why would they put miserable children that are crying scared and traumatized on the news?? 


You want to help? Donate to helping them get reunited with their families (you said it yourself...they just cant afford it) Of course they cant afford it...but if people work together it will happen!!!


How do you adopt a child from a orphanage in Haiti?


I really need some information to adopt a child from Haiti. Its just so heart broken to me to see a child go through all those earthquakes and seeing them losing families and homes. I really want to know how and where to start to adopt a Haitian baby so he/she can get out of that danger. How much will i have to pay?
----------

There are adoptable children in Haiti right now who have been living in the local orphanages prioir to the earthquake.  You would need to contact the orphange directly for direction and many are not able to recieve email, etc right now.  Here are a few listings:

http://www.glahaiti.org/

http://www.achildshopefoundation.org/global_haiti.html

http://www.hishomeforchildren.com/

I found these by an internet search under "orphanges in Haiti" 
Most of the orphanages are either evangelical christian or Catholic based but not all.

Haiti Law requires potential adoptive parents to meet these qualifications:   Adoption Law

The 1974 Adoption law  states that adoptive parents must:
be 35 years of age (at least one parent)
be married for at least 10 years OR
if single, must be 35 years old or older
have no more than 2 biological children.

Good Luck!!


How can my family and I adopt a child from Haiti? How long should it take?


My family is very interested in adopting a child from Haiti. I realize the adoption process may be a long one but I also hear that because of the tragedy in Haiti the process has been sped up! Does anyone know any info or webs sites that could help us?
----------

It has not been sped up at all. In fact, just the opposite. It has completely HALTED!

No child is allowed to be adopted from Haiti right now. It may be years before adoption processes are allowed to resume. The only children leaving that country right now are ones who were adoped before the earthquake (meaning, their homestudies done, paperwork filed on both ends, legal stuff completed, etc.). They were just waiting on a green light to come and get them. 

The average waiting time for the adoption of Haitian children is 2.5 years. 
If you want to help, donate money to the RedCross. 
Here are some orphanages that are accepting donations as well:


- Maison des Enfants de Dieu was right at the center of the earthquake. Their building was badly damaged, and looters stole some of their supplies. (These are the babies you have probably seen/heard of who are now living in the back of a truck.)
They are accepting money donations and you may donate at their website: http://www.haitiadoption.org/HaitiEarthquake.aspx 

- Petits Anges de Chantal is accepting money donations. Do NOT send supplies! The orphanage is in Port-au-Prince and damage was done to their building. 
You may donate at:
http://pachaitifund.bbnow.org/index.php


- Maison Fortune Orphanages is accepting money donations
Visit their website for information. http://www.maisonfortune.org/index.php/h… 
They say they are accepting supplies, though it has not been updated since the earthquake, so we don't know if they can still receive supplies right now.) Money donation is best way. 



- God's Littlest Angels. (Note: They had a significant decline in donations before the earthquake, so it is definitely worse now! They are having to pay for home repair themselves.) They are accepting money donations via paypal (from their website: http://www.glahaiti.org/ )for you can mail a check to:
God's Littlest Angels
2085 Crystal River Dr.
Colorado Springs, CO 80915 
I believe they lost a few children to death in the earthquake, and the orphanage is having to pay for funerals. 
They are also accepting supplies, and will try to get it shipped to Haiti as soon as they are allowed. 
They need: powdered formula, diapers, wipes, baby cereal, infant Tylenol, infant and children vitamins, baby lotion, baby shampoo, soap, toothbrushes and toothpaste, blankets (for ages 1-8), clothes for boys and girls ages 1-8, first aid supplies (neosporin, Band-Aids, gauze, etc.)  Donations may be sent to the address above.


- - Hands and Feet Orphanage is accepting money donations .(No RedCross for US aid had reached them yet, as of a few days ago). You may donate via paypal on their site: https://www.handsandfeetproject.org/dona…
Or you can mail a check to: 
Hands & Feet Project

Franklin, TN 37068
They are not accepting supplies at this time.


- Danita’s Children Hope for Haiti Children’s Center is accepting money donations via paypal. They have rescued and  brought several new orphans to their facility from Port-au-Prince. Their website is: https://app.etapestry.com/hosted/DanitasChildrenHopeforH/OnlineDonation.html 



- - Maranatha Orphanage is accepting money donations only. They cannot receive any supplies, but money is needed to buy supplies already in Haiti. You can donate money via paypal on their website, just be sure to click “Maranatha Orphanage” as the company they work with supports others, and you want to be sure the money gets to Haiti.

My cousin wants to adopt a child from Haiti and Vietnam? How does she go about this?


My cousin is unable to have children her and her husband wants to adopt children but from out of the country we're from the US. We are black so I know they won't have any problems adopting a child from Haiti but will they run into any problems trying to adopt a Vietnamese child? My sister has always loved Asian people and she wants an Asian child even though her husband is Black/White. 

So how would they go about adopting kids from another country? Are there any programs?
----------

VN is closed. Haiti is very slow. Expect to wait 3 years to bring a child home.Adoptions took 2-3 years BEFORE the quake.
If you are a black, you are greatly needed here in the US in our domestic infant adoption programs. There are not near enough black people adopting compared to black infants that come available. Many black mothers would like to place their children with black families but most end up placing with whites because there are not black families available. These are the most inexpensive newborn adoptions of healthy children available in the U.S. Far cheaper and far faster than any international program.

She may Email me off list if she would like more information.


How much is a loaf of bread in Haiti?


How much is a bag of rice in Haiti?
----------

loaf of bread = 127, 500 Haitian dollars, (about 3 1/2 cents)

bag of rice = 2 teenage daughters, a pig and three chickens.
