Waiting at a clinic

A hard day in a grievous world. Here's something you can do: The Maine-based health partnership Konbit Sante - Creole for working together for health - is looking for smart phones, Ipads and other devices that would allow Haitian health workers in the field to collect data, conduct surveys, see  medical information in Creole, communicate with local hospitals and otherwise get health care to Haiti's most marginalized people where they most need it - ie: where they live. The cause is good, the need is great.

FRIENDS: Help Us Fight

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
