Manresa Refugee Camp

Jake Wood tending to the wounded.


  1. Jake, you and your team are such a blessing to the people of Haiti! Stay safe. Our prayers are with you!

  2. I was in Haiti 12 years ago. I don't have the ability or skills to assist now so I donated to you what I could. Thank you for your courage, bravery, and selflessness. God Bless and be safe.

  3. Hey fellas'! My name is Frank Vozenilek, and I'm sitting here in Cedar Rapids, IA (just NW of you Jake) and as an Army retiree and disabled vet I cannot tell U all how proud I am of you. Of course our prayers are up for Team Rubicon.

    Doc. I served as a medic in Vietnam and often dealt with old, infected wounds. Additionally, I worked as a nurse before my injuries got me in the VA, on a spinal cord unit. Thus A WHOLE LOT of old, infected, poorly cared for, often dirty, even gangrenous wounds. (Pressure sores primarily. Some were from falling from wheelchairs.)

    My point Doc is IF, you think I might be able to assist through advising, giving input via video by phone or some way, please feel free to call or email. As I said, working the spinal cord unit I have a lot of wound care experience and can possibly "assess" a wound on line or using my video phone capability.

    At this time I'm simply unable to leave our ministry to cover assisting on the ground. Not to mention By the time I got my needed handicap appliances in place and ready for a trip, I dare say your team would probably be done and on y'all's way home.

    Anyway . . . thank you for all your work,
