Symphonic Relief for Haiti
"Joy, sorrow, tears, lamentation, laughter-- to all these music gives voice, but in such a way that we are transported from the world of unrest to a world of peace, and see reality in a new way." --- Dr. Albert Schweitzer
On January 31, 2010, Longwood Symphony Orchestra, New England Conservatory and thousands of musicians around the world are raising their voices and instruments to Heal the Community through Music.
Our thanks to Partners HealthCare, Merck Foundation, Tufts Health Plan and Harvard Medical School for their support.
The scope the disaster is truly enormous, and a tremendous influx of immediate aid is needed to avert an even greater loss of life. Partners In Health has been working in Haiti for nearly 25 years. Our local team is already working to ensure PIH’s coordinated relief efforts, leveraging the skills of more than 120 doctors and nearly 500 nurses and nursing assistants who work at established sites throughout Haiti.
Please help us make sure that this skilled team has the resources it needs to address the crisis at hand.
One thing I know: the only ones among you who will be truly happy are those who have sought and found a way to serve. If a man loses his reverence for any part of life, he will lose his reverence for all of life. ---Dr. Albert Schweitzer
When a Person in Peru, or Siberia, or rural Haiti falls ill, PIH uses all of the means at our disposal to make them well…
Whatever it takes. Just as we would do if a member of our own family—or we ourselves—were ill.
