Isabelle Jeanson has worked in communications with Doctors without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) since 2003. She has spent time with MSF missions in Colombia, Russia, Nigeria, and Papua New Guinea, and she served as an emergency press officer in Sri Lanka following the 2004 tsunami. She joined the emergency team in Haiti 48 hours after the January 12 earthquake struck, and filed this report on the morning of January 21:
I had the scare of my life Wednesday morning. I had hoped I could sleep 10 extra minutes because I’ve been working on 5 hours a night for the last week and am hitting the bottom of the barrel.
