District man rescued from hotel in Haiti

By Washington Post editors

The Baltimore Sun is reporting that a District man is among three senior staff members of an area aid organization pulled alive from the wreckage of their hotel in Haiti after spending more than 50 hours trapped in rubble.

The three are IMA World Health president Richard Santos, of the District; vice president of international programs Sarla Chand; and IMA Haiti program manager Ann Varghese.

Co-workers learned Thursday night that Santos and Chand had been found alive. They later found out Varghese was safe.

Five Haitian employees of the organization were still missing, however.

Please come to Haiti in the spring time. Even a huge earthquake won't have much of an impact on the overpopulation. The misery & hard times will continue forever. The poor we will always have with us.
