Creating Waves of Awareness

Dear HWC Members

Most likely you have not been thinking about REALLY getting involved with the Haiti Relief effort. Perhaps you have been watching the news unfold. You saw the initial devastation and total SHOCK on the faces of the people.

There was no crying. Just stillness in the aftermath of the earthquake. Then people started to move, scream for help, cry and pray. In your minds you are thinking, if only we could get them some Aconite for shock, Arnica for shock and bruises, Hypericum for crushed and damaged nerves, Stramonium for terror and fright.

You are quick to think, but not quick to act.
As we continue to see videos and images of people helping, surgeries, searches for the lost, digging to uncover the injured, riots and looting by those who have no water and food, violence by those who are desperate because they can't appease their drug addiction, wailing of those who have lost all loved ones and every other emotion and behavior you can imagine, we ask, 'What can we do?" I'm considering going down to Haiti with my husband, Rob, when the region is stabilized and safer to travel.

Talk and Consider What Part You Will Play
Honestly, maybe deep down in a hidden part of myself, I want to go and help like those who volunteer for the Peace-Corps in war-torn countries. We understand that the Red Cross cannot be trusted, and the United Nations has its own biased problems. There are a few good organizations. We can connect with them and also form our own group of leaders.

Does Age Matter?
I'm not very young anymore and have to consider potential dangers and the needs of my own family. So, where do you draw the line? How do you make a decision? What is a potential reality for you? Are you up to a trip to Haiti? Can you donate some time and money elsewhere that will be a 'giving' act?

My Home Town
Here, in my state of North Carolina, I know someone in the Disaster Relief section of State Government. They are massively preparing for an influx of immigrants. North Carolina was safe harbor for the Katrina victims. The army and reserves got on ships and planes and brought people out of the city. Churches worked night and day to find clothing, shelter and food. There were huge fund drives. People were generous ~ so much was given and so much not accounted for. Counselors volunteered to deal with the emotional traumas. There are very few homeopaths here. I might be able to count them on my hand. I'm wondering, "How can I help?"

What organizations are open to using homeopathy?
Maybe, I can contact some of the counselors and give a presentation on homeopathy and trauma? I'm brain-storming ideas.

We Can Do A Huge Fundraiser
Using the power of the internet we can raise money. But, we must have good use for the funds and we can appeal to those with goods to donate. There must be an organization to the process to store, transport and house everything. There must be people on the scene who can use these goods and properly administer them.

People Power Needed
If you are still thinking, "What can I do?" Continue to talk about it with your loved ones, friends and family. Don't feel that you are alone. We can all come up with good ideas together. Then we can make it a reality.

One More Thing ~ Adoption
It's been less than a week and there are an incredible number of orphans. There were orphans in Haiti before the earthquake. But, now, the numbers are enormous. They are reducing the stringency laws for processing through the adoption process. If you are in a position to adopt, this may be something for you.

Well, as i said,


For if nobody comes along, i will have to do it all alone - i am determined to go.

I'll have to ask God to grow me another 10 sets of arms, and he can if he so wants to. But there is no need, if you all pitch in. So where are the volunteers?

If we are ready to fight off the quackbusters is that only to protect our own wallet? That campaign has over 250 members and they grew exponentially from the moment the thread started.

But if there is a real need for volunteers, who is home, when i knock on your doors?
Lets help Kavi!! If everyone on HWC just contributed $1 - (and we can do better) it would mean travel, supplies, food, shelter etc. JUST DO IT!!!
Kaviraj - and Dr. Bruck - Would love to go out there but can't leave my job, I'm afraid. However, I would be happy to contribute something financially - can a fund please be set up? Payment thorugh PayPal, perhaps.

Liz Brynin
Jaine, you can contact Ingrid Schutt. she is there and I think she has paypal account for the clinic.
I am fine, thank you. And yourself, sweetie?
Btw, Ingrid said she will be back there in May.
I just did a seminar here in the UK about agrohomoeopathy. Very nice and enlivening. Not many people, so we did it much more informal. A few fields trips to boot, out in the forest of Dean - or very close by.

This monday, on returning home I also heard one of my lungcancer cases has been tested and declared cured. All in all very good!
Dear Colleagues esp. Ms Debby Bruck

I am ready to join Those who want to be active in the scene. I suggest to make an urgent plan to assemble those who are deeply interested and strong enough to take part in a group of the volunteers from our community. We can set a rapid time. For me there is a long trip forward from Tehran.The leader of our group may be Ms Debby Bruck or Ms Gina Tyler . I accept to be her assistant in health services affair.other people can be programmed by the leader of the group.
We'd better to get familiar with Haiti and its people and region. Haiti has been the second independent country after the U.S.A...

Along with the Dominican Republic, Haïti occupies the island of Hispaniola. Ayiti ("land on high") was the indigenous Taïno/Arawak or Amerindian name for the island.

Haïti's regional, historical and ethnolinguistic position is unique for several reasons. It was the first independent nation in the Caribbean,(click here to read the act of the independence) the first post-colonial, independent, black-led country in the world, the only nation whose independence was gained as part of a successful slave rebellion, and the second independent nation in America after the United States. Haïti is the predominant Francophone nation in the Caribbean and one of only two in North America (along with Canada) which designated French as its official language.


The island of Hispaniola, of which Haïti occupies the western part, was originally inhabited by the Taïno/Arawaks or Amerindians. On December 5, 1492, Christopher Columbus landed at the Mole St. Nicholas and claimed the island for Spain. Haïti, which means "mountainous land," was the name used by the Taino Arawaks, and they also called some part of it Bohio, which means "rich villages." Kiskeya is also another term attributed to the island by the Taïno/Arawaks. The population of Hispaniola was divided by 5 chiefdoms called Cacicazgos ("Caciques" in French) . The name of the five Cacicazgos were Marien, Maguana, Higuey, Magua and Xaragua.

One of the earliest to fight off the Spanish Conquest was the Queen Anacaona, a princess from Xaragua who married the chief Caonabo, who was also the king of Maguana. With her husband, Anacoana resisted the European rule but without any success. She got captured by the Spanish and was executed in front of her own people. The explorers exploited the island for it's gold, mined chiefly by local Amerindians, who were directed by the Spanish occupiers. Those who refused to work in the mines were slaughtered and forced into slavery. Also, the Europeans brought several infectious diseases that were new to the Caribbean. Slavery and the new diseases contributed a lot to the decimation of the indigenous population. In 1517, the King of Spain authorized the drafting of slaves from Africa. The Taïno/Arawaks eventually became extinct on the island of Hispaniola. Those who survived mixed with fugitive African slaves (called Nègre Marron) and produced a multiracial generation. The western part of the island was later settled by French buccaneers.

Treaty of Ryswick

France and Spain settled hostilities on the island through the Treaty of Ryswick, which divided Hispaniola between both countries. France received the western third and named it Saint Domingue (now Haïti). Saint Domingue quickly became the richest French colony of the New World through its slave trade and the revenue from its sugar, coffee and indigo industries. Prepared by Jean Baptiste Colbert and ratified by Louis XIV, the code noir ("black code") established rigid rules pertaining to the treatment of slaves and permissible freedoms.

Code Noire

Haiti during French Colonization.

The Economy of Saint Domingue gradually expanded. Saint Domingue exported in 1767: 72 Million pounds of raw sugar and 51 Million pounds of refined sugar. 1 Million pounds of Indigo and 2 Millions pounds of cotton.
Due to this, Saint Domingue became the richest French colony, one of the richest colony in the world and owned the name of " Pearl of the Antilles" because of its richness. The colony became the envy of every other European country. Saint Domingue produced about 40% of all the sugar and 60% of all the coffee consumed in all Europe by 1780. The colony employed a thousand ships and 15.000 French sailors. The richness of the colony was due to the labor of an estimated 790.000 African slaves. Between 1783 and 1791, a third of the entire Atlantic slave trade was shipped to Saint Domingue. This huge slave population was ruled by a white population that by 1789, numbered only 32.000.

During the French colonization, Saint Domingue has populated by three class of inhabitants.
The white colonist or blancs, the free blacks (Usually mixed race known as mulattoes or gens de couleurs). The majority of this class were educated people, literate and most of the time served in the army, operate businesses and own property. They were mostly children of white planters and African slave mothers. And at the bottom there was the lowest class. The African slaves. This group outnumbered the other ones by a ratio of ten to one. They were mostly African born and the death rate amongst them was extremely high due to poor living conditions: Overwork, inadequate food, clothing and medical care, shelter and also there was a huge imbalance between sexes, with more men then women. That is the reason why France was constantly importing new ones from Africa. The slave conditions in Saint Domingue were the worst in all the Caribbean. As Saint Domingue was the richest colony in the 18th century, the French did everything that they could to keep that status. There were cruel to the extreme towards the slaves. Below's a passage from Henry Christophe's personal secretary who lived more than half his life as slave, describes the crime perpetrated against the slaves of Saint Domingue by their French masters.

" Have they not hung up men with heads downward, drowned them in sacks, crucified them on planks, buried them alive, crushed them in motards? Have they not forced them to eat shit? And have they not flayed them with lashes, have they not cast them alive to be devoured by worms, or onto anthills, or lashed them to stakes in the swamp to be devoured by mosquitoes? Have they not thrown them into boiling cauldrons of cane syrup? have they not put men and women inside barrels studded with spikes and rolled them down the mountains sides into the abyss? Have they not consigned these miserable blacks to man-eating dogs until the latter, sated by human flesh, left the mangled victims to be finished off with bayonet and poniard."

Even some Frenchman condemned the treatments that the slaves was the subject to. Brueys d'Aigailliers wrote a friend in France: The harshness of their servitude is revolting to human nature. Everyone says they are lazy, untruthful, full of malice; These deflect common enough among white men, can only be worsened by their captivity... exposed to the unjust caprice of absolute masters who on the whim of anger are capable of inflicting the excesses of cruelty...>>

The Code Noire ("Black Code") in English was a decree passed by France's King Louis XIV in 1685. The Code Noire defined the conditions of slavery in the French colonial empire, the activities of free Negroes and forbade the exercise of any religion other than Roman Catholicism.

The document was comprised of 60 articles and specified the following:

Jews could not reside in the French Colonies
Slaves must be baptized in the Roman Catholic Church
No other religion could be exercised other than Roman Catholicism
Slave masters must be Roman Catholic
Non-Catholic subjects must not interfere with the Catholic practices of other subjects
All colonial subjects and slaves must observe Catholic holidays, regardless of their own faith, and no one must work on Sundays and on holidays
Slave markets must not be held on Catholic holidays
Only Catholic marriages would be recognized
Married free men will be fine for having children with their slave concubines, as will the slave concubine's master. If the man himself is the master of the slave concubine, the slave and child will be removed from his ownership. If the man was not married, he should be then married to the slave concubine, thus freeing her and the child from slavery
Weddings between slaves must be carried out only with the master's permission
Slaves will not be married without their own consent
Children born between married slaves are also slaves, belonging to the female slave's master
Children between a male slave and a female free woman are free, while children between a female slave and a free man are slaves
Slaves should not carry weapons except by permission of their masters for hunting purposes
Slaves belonging to different masters may not gather at any time under any circumstance
Slaves should not sell sugar cane, even with permission of their masters
Masters must give food (quantities specified) and clothes for their slaves, even if they are sick or old
(Unclear) slaves can testify but only for providing information
A slave who strikes his or her master, his wife, children and/or mistress will be executed
Fugitive slaves absent for one month shall have their ears cut off and be branded. If they are absent for an additional month, one of their hamstrings will be severed and and they will be branded again. If they are absent up to three months, they will be executed
Masters of freed slaves who give refuge to fugitive slaves will be fined
(Unclear) A master who falsely accuses a slave of a crime and has the slave put to death will be fined
Masters may chain or beat slaves, but may not torture or mutilate them
Masters who kill their slaves will be punished
Slaves are community property and cannot be mortgaged and must be equally be split between the master's inheritors, but can be used as payment for a debt or bankruptcy, and otherwise sold
A slave husband and wife (and their prepubescent children) are not to be sold separately
Slave masters 20 years of age (25 without parental permission) may free their slaves
Slaves who are declared to be sold legatees by their masters or named as executors of their wills, or tutors of their children, shall be considered as freed
Freed slaves are French subjects, even if born elsewhere
Freed slaves must show special respect to their former master and their family members
Freed slaves have the same rights as French Colonial subjects
Fees and fines paid with regards to the Code Noir must go to the royal administration, but one third will be assigned to the local hospital.

We should go. We need not be afraid of anything. It is good to remember this:

'The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.'
There comes a point in your life when you realize:

Who matters,
Who never did,
Who won't anymore...
And who always will.
A friend of mine was having some sound advise.

1) Get a good portable generator and enough fuel. Honda would be good.

2) I doubt U.S. Govt. and U.N. will lend support. Worth pushing for it, but you know them....on the Big Pharma dole. More indirect avenues are required there, me thinks. ... See More

3) Was thinking you might try gaining support for a mission from some of our more powerful and wealthy homeopathic friends in Hollywood and elsewhere. Why not The Queen? I'm sure they might be interested in getting homeopaths out there. Why not try Sir Branson to back us here? Give it a shot.

4) There's also the Catholic Church which has taken heavy losses out there. Remind them that Mother Teresa was a homeopath. Vatican -- and also her Hospitaller Order -- have diplomatic access globally regardless of U.N. and U.S. interests. Homeopathy has priest and nun practitioners who could make the plea, but the orders kinda have to come from the top down. Black Water -- now Xe Corp -- was once run by a Hospitaller. You can be sure U.S. has their contractors on the ground now, though nobody is really going to want to support any homeopathic missionaries due to our stigma. Thus, I suggest downplaying anything of homeopathy at first. Put our homeopathic M.D.'s in charge of the mission. Just talk about delivery of supplies and "medicine"; Opening up "first aid" clinics. Document the homeopathic help and tell the world about it over time, but not while trying to do it and get in there. That will boggle you down and cripple ops. Be sneaky. Put the tip of the spear as reputable allopaths, religious workers, etc. You'll help more suffering ones that way.

5) Not to hurt any feelings here, but there are also Jewish and Islamic medical charities and homeopathy is known in those worlds, too. When you try to send in Christian missionaries, they get stifled in the field. But, it's bad PR to not allow Jews and Islamics into such zones to render aid and faith, etc. The minute they start grumbling about inequality and no access....ooooh, how you can expect U.S. Govt. and U.N. to shiver, be ever politically correct, "sensitive", and open the doors while even giving $$$ and support where they would be far less helpful in regard to anything Christian. I remember a radio interview of a Catholic priest asked about U.N. missions in Rwanda. He noted something very interesting when questioned about U.N. support of faith groups: "Oh, no! The U.N. is not against religion at all. Very supportive. They're just against anything Christian and support all else." Something like that was his quote. So, put the non-Christian religious as your front people, too. Gotta get the wedge tip in first. Then, you can bring in the whole axe.

Five airports in Haiti (plus some flat areas suitable for soft-field landing with taildragger aircraft):

Cap Haitien
Port De Paix

U.S. military has control of Port-Au-Prince and relief flights have been delayed at times in favor of military ops. Big stink there. Uncertain at this point of military dominates the whole airspace. Relief pilots actively engaged in missions to Haiti right now would be the best source of notices to airman, travel advisories, facilities & refueling options near each airport, local conditions, etc.

Treasure Coast Missionary Flights

Great Commission Air

Mission Aviation Fellowship

Fort Pierce, FL 34946
(772) 462-2395
Fax: (772) 462-2397
*They're on Facebook, too.

....Homeopaths and supplies could get in probably best by light aircraft to peripheral airfields if the airspace is not locked down.

I will go, but have to wait a while to get the necessary funds to travel - £400 in the account is insufficient.
Am waiting for a payment from my Japanese publisher and a Canadian client.
Then i have sufficient funds. There are 30 boxes of remedies available from Gina Tyler and i would need water and shelter.
I have a camera in my phone and video in my iPod, but i do not know about power supply to run my laptop and iPhone.

God willing, i will be on my way soon.
