Catholic Relief Services (CRS) and its Caritas partners have stepped up relief efforts in Port-au-Prince and surrounding areas, delivering food and water to hundreds of thousands and providing medical care to thousands more. To date, CRS has provided food to more than 264,000 people. A CRS team also worked to get St. Francois de Sales Hospital in Port-au-Prince up and running within days of the disaster. Volunteer medical teams are now performing up to 200 critical operations per week. As camps are becoming more organized and with the rainy season looming, CRS is also stepping up efforts to build temporary shelter and stem the outbreak of disease that results from a lack of clean water and poor hygiene.
