Haiti earthquake aftermath
Haitian Nurse Makes Tent a Home
Miriam, a Hatian nurse who owned a lovely home, now lives in a tent with her mother and two nephews on the grounds of the Church of God Seminary in Port-au-Prince.
Miriam's sister who has 5 children lives in the same compound but does not have a tent. Instead, she and her children huddle on an umbrella.
Miriam works as a nurse and translator for the Christian non-profit, Thirst No More, which runs medical mission clinics all over Haiti.
You might expect that Miriam would be very depressed over her plight. However, you'd be wrong. Miriam constantly smiles and laughs. She says that for a month after the earthquake she did not have a tent and got very wet when it rained. When she was given a tent, she was very happy.
