Major Efforts On Behalf Of Haiti

Local efforts on behalf of the sur-
vivors of the January 12 earthquake in
Haiti have been massive. As of our
deadline this week, the local popula-
tion had donated almost 130,000 euros
and the Collectivity pledged another
200,000 euros in response to this gen-
erosity. These sums prove that we
were all touched by the gravity of this
major earthquake on our neighboring
island. A large part of the funds were
collected during the events held on the
dock in Gustavia on Saturday, January
16, and coordinated by the Multi-Pro-
fessional Economic Council, with
monies going to support relief actions
by the Lions Club, Rotary Club, and
Croix Rouge. A total of 17,308,62
euros was raised via various sales in
addition to donations given directly to
the three service groups, each of
which had its own stand on the dock.

Where does
your money go?

The Lions Club Opts
For Reconstruction
While they regularly send food and
clothing to Haiti, this time the Lions
Club opted for a different solution:
"Until now, we preferred to send mer-
chandise to Haiti. But in this time of
emergency we felt it was better to col-
lect money," explains Jean-Pierre Bal-
lagny, president of the local service
club, who announced that they raised
$44,000 on Saturday, January 16. The

un Monday, January i8, Regis rain,
president of the CEM, presented Jean-
Pierre Ballagny, president of the local
Lions Club, with a checkfor 5,584
euros donated during the fund-rasi-
ning events on January 16.

The CEM organized a '. "
Haitian relief day in
which businesses, res-
taurants, and professio-
nals raised more than
17,000 euros.

Lions Club decided on
Friday what they would
do with the money:
"What I can tell you is
that the funds will be
used in the reconstruction efforts, as it
seems very difficult, if not impossible,
to provide immediate aid."
In addition, the Lions Club purchased
two 40' containers that should arrive
in Saint Barth shortly These will be
sent to Haiti as soon as possible. In the
meantime the club is continuing to
collect donations c/o Lions Club, BP

or euro "Haiti Disaster" accounts at
the BNR

Rotary Provides Shelter
For 1000 people_
Without counting the first 20 that the
Rotary financed last Wednesday, this
service club succeeded in the purchase
of 84 additional ShelterBoxes, these
solid plastic cases that contain a tent
for up to 10 people and survival gear.
Nils Dufau, director of the Rotary's
communication commission, told us
that the first wave of 37 boxes, pur-
chased on Thursday, January 14 via
the Miami branch of the international
ShelterBox association created in
2000 by a Rotarian, had arrived in
Haiti. The rest of the boxes should be

here in the next few days.
Yann Perez, president of the Rotary
Club, informed us that in spite of
meeting their goals, in light of the
enormous need in Haiti, the Rotary
Club would "obviously" continue to
collect funds to finance additional

One ShelterBox contains: A 10-person
tent, blankets, water purification and
cooking equipment, basic tools (saw,
axe, shovel, rope), a stove, and other
essential equipment such as mosquito
nets, activity packs for kids, and a
wind-up AM/FM radio.

continue to get calls from
individuals and businesses
that would like to finance
additional boxes. To do so,
you may deposit a check at

More Than 15,000
For The Red Cross
In all, the territorial delega-
tion of the Red Cross in
Saint Barth collected
10,356 euros, in addition to
the 5,784 euros they
received from the CEM's
actions on January 16.
These funds will go toward
emergency relief adminis-
tered by the Red Cross in
Haiti. "For us this seemed

the best way to offer emer-
gency aid to the victims,"
explains Henri Louis, presi-
dent of the local delegation.
The Red Cross has put an

emphasis on two efforts in
Haiti: the establishment of
medical centers and creation
of potable water stations.

No competition between the non-profit organizations: only
the desire to help.

On Thursday, January 14 and Friday, January 15, the young
members of the UMP political party held a food drive for
vi, rimn of the earthquake in Haiti, ( lle' riin, non-perishable
items. By the end of the second day, they announced a total
of 33 shopping carts offood and palettes with hundreds of
canned items, dried foods, water, and milk. These items will
be sent in the two containers that the Lions Club hopes to
send to Haiti as soon as the situation allows.

To offer as much assistance
as possible, Alexandra Def-
fontis (on behalf of the Col-
lectivity of Saint Barth6le-
my) has made a computer
and staff person available to
all Haitian nationals in
Saint Barth. The goal is to
use all possible avenues via
the Internet to try and find
missing family and friends
who have not been in con-
tact since the earthquake.
Almost a dozen people
seeking up to 50 family
members have taken advan-


tage of this service. For the
moment, the search has not
been fruitful. "We are con-
tinuing our research," says
Deffontis, who in addition
to websites such as
and www.koneksyon.com,
has sent a list of the missing
names to the Canadian
radio station, Voix Tropical,
broadcast in Haiti. Contact
has also been established

HAITIAN PRIEST An Ecumenical Service for Haiti



Like all Haitians around the
world, Father Eug2he Kaze,
the Catholic priest in Saint
Barth, was personally affect-
ed by the earthquake that hit
his native island. But for
him, as for many Haitian ex-
pats, there were many hours
of waiting and anguish
before the first news arrived
from his family He finally
got good news on January,
14 at 1:30am: ly 31-year-
old brother, Pierre-Lucien,
who works at the Ministry
of the Interior and has been
studying economics at the
same time, called to tell me
he had just been rescued
uninjured from the debris at
the university in Port-au-
Prince, a 10-story building
that collapsed like a puff
pastry. He was trapped
underneath for 48 hours! I
didn't even know he had
been at the university. In
reality, I was worried about
my sister who works at the
Minustah (United Nations
Stabilization Mission in
Haiti), whose building was
destroyed. I had spoken to
her at noon when she was in
her office and I imagined the
worst. Fortunately she was
outside of Port-au-Prince
when the earthquake took
place." Their parents live in
the eastern end of the coun-
try and are also safe and
The : I..iii..Ii.1,i religious
community, to which Father
Kaze belongs, was hit hard
with the loss of 10 members
when their building in
Turgeau collapsed. The
Inter-Institute for Religious
Training (CIFOR) collapsed
onto a minibus with seminar
attendees at the exact
moment they were leaving
the building, causing 20

~. ~

deaths. The cathedral and
the majority of the churches
in the Haitian capital sus-
tained heavy damage, as did
The Church of Saint Louis
Roi de France, home of

Long-Term Aid
The Catholic community has
not been excluded from the
fund-raising efforts for Haiti
that have taken place in Saint
Barth since the earthquake.
But the aid is for the long-
term: "With the church
council, we have opted to
help with the reconstruction.
Of a school, an infirmary, a
hospital, that is yet to be
decided," explained the
priest, who can already envi-
sion "the day that light will
once again shine in Haiti.
For the time being, intema-
tional emergency relief is
taking time to reach the vic-
tims, but it is &i llig there.
Now it is important to start
to think about post-earth-
quake aid." With this goal in
mind, Father Kaze told us
that he plans to go to Haiti
shortly and make an evalua-
tion: ly objective is to
come back with propositions
for projects," concludes the
priest, who found it hard to
conceal his emotional pain a
few days after the earth-
quake that caused 50,000
deaths according to the
World Health Organization,
or the 70,000 according to
the Haitian government, or a
possible toll of 200,000
according to the American

Anglican vicar Charles Vere Nicoll, Evangelical pastor Iris
Romney, and two Catholic priests, Robert Blanchard and
Eugene Kaze, participated in the ecumenical prayer service
at the Catholic Church in Lorient.

As local events and fund-
raising drives were under-
way to send much-needed
aid to the survivors of the
catastrophic earthquake in
Haiti, the religious commu-
nities of Saint Barth joined
together in prayer on Friday,
January 16 for an ecumeni-
cal service at 6:00pm at the
Catholic Church in Lorient.
There were tears in many
eyes as Father Eugene Kaze,
a native of Haiti, shared the
pulpit with fellow Catholic
priest, Robert Blanchard,
Anglican vicar Charles Vere
Nichol, and Evangelical
pastor Iris Romney
During the service, the
island's spiritual leaders
shared their -ii...ug lii and
read various passages from
the Bible: "Jesus invites us
to be God's hands and work
miracles for those who are
suffering," said Vere Nichol,
who read from Isiah, Chap-
ter 43, in the words of the
Lord: "When thou passes
through the waters, I will be
with thee; and through the
rivers, they shall not over-
flow thee: when thou walk-
est through the fire, thou
shalt not be burned; neither
shall the flame kindle upon
thee,". Father Blanchard
noted that at his Sunday
morning mass he thought of
the Haitians who were
unable to go to church
themselves, as many
churches have been
destroyed: "We must have

faith and believe that this
crushed people can rise
thanks to the solidarity of all
humanity, and become a
people that can once again
help itself." Two young
Haitian women spoke, one
in tears, the other praying to
God to give force to all
Haitian mothers to be able
to get the food and water
they need for their families.
An email from Haitian film-
maker Amold Antonin, who
attended the St Barth Film
Festival in April, described
the conditions in Port au
Prince as "apocalyptic," and
that the images we see on
the Internet and TV did not
illustrate the reality of the
situation but that moral sup-
port served as an enormous
comfort to those who sur-
vived. Father Kaze, over-
come by emotion, sang "Le
deuil d'Haiti,*" which he
described as a Haitian text
set to music that the
Haitians sing and play on
the radio every time there is
a catastrophe in their coun-
try. The words of this text
seem particularly appropri-
ate now, when Haiti is clear-
ly bereaving. "This is the
first time since the war of
independence in Haiti that
the rich and the poor are liv-
ing in the same place: the
streets," said Kaze. "The
future depends on all of us,
and I am certain that Haiti
will be reborn from its cin-

New Head Of


A classical music fan and director of
the "Temps Musicaux" festival in
Ramatuelle, France for the past 22
years, Didier Bensa (who also serves
as president of the St Barth Restau-
rant Association) has become head
of www.medici.tv, which recently
became part of "Museec." Created
in May 2008, and previously operat-
ed by the production house Id6ale
Audience, this web-based project is
dedicated to classical music and
offers concerts, operas, and ballets
via live streaming or VOD (video on

Herv6 BoissiZre, who remains the
general operations director, original-
ly launched this initiative. Also a
classical music fan, who listened to
programs on France Musique, the
-I i-... ll ilIl ii Boissire has run vari-
ous record labels, most notably
Naeve (which produced singer Carla
Bruni-Sarkozy), before founding
www.medici.tv. By May 2009, just
one year after its debut, the site had
aired over three million live web-
casts for more than 400,000 viewers
in 198 countries.

The VOD catalog includes over 400
videos including concerts by some

Herve Boissiere

of the top
names in clas-
sical music
Claudio Abba-
do, Daniel
Martha Arg-
erich, Maur-
izio Pollini,
Nikolae Lugansky, Anna Netrebko,
Magdalena Kozena... There are also
archive films by great artists from
the past: Maria Callas, Herbert von
Karajan, Leonard Bernstein, David
Oistrakh, Mstislav Rostropovitch,
Samson Fran6ois, Dietrich Fischer-
Dieskau... Plus interesting portraits
of artists and composers (Glenn
Gould, Sviatoslav Richter, Yehudi
Menuhin, Philip Glass, Arvo Part,
Karlheinz Stockhausen, Pierre
Boulez...) by leading directors such
as Bruno Monsaingeon or Frank
Scheffer. And finally documentary
films made by the best in the field
such as Johan van der Keuken or
Alexander Sokurov add to this virtu-
al music hall available online 24/7,
and which comprises the largest col-
lection of classical musical videos.

In addition to the VOD offerings,
medici.tv's numerous live
webcasts for music lovers
have ranged from a con-
cert by the Berliner Philar-
moniker direct from
Moscow, Mozart's opera
Zaede by Peter Sellars at
the festival in Aix en
Provence, 10 concerts
from the Aspen Music Fes-
tival, Pierre Boulez at the
Louvre, and The Chamber
Orchestra of Europe to
every concert from the
2008 and 2009 Verbier
Festival programs, which
attract an average of
800,000 connections each.

Didier Bensa

Goals In 2010: "To offer 60 new
films for VOD each year," explain
Didier Bensa and Herv6 BoissiZre.
"We also plan to develop the site
internationally and add to the num-
ber of viewers worldwide by adding
versions in Spanish and Chinese to
the existing versions in English and
French. In fact, China has over 20
million people who play musical
instruments and represents the mar-
ket with the most potential for devel-
opment," concludes the new man-
agement team for medici.tv.

The Dengue Epidemic Continues:



Saint Barth has been experiencing a dengue epidemic
for the past two months. Since the third week of
November, over 340 people have had this virus, which
is carried by the aedes-aegypti mosquito. In order to
prevent dengue fever or to know what to do if you sus-
pect you ar e sick, Dr Gilles Alayangues from the local
hospital, Dr Deborah Brosnan, David Graham, and the
St Barth International Pr operty Owners Association
have issued the following information:

Most dengue cases are
benign, but complications
can develop. Seek medical
help if you develop
dengue fever.

What is dengue fever and
how is it transmitted ?
Dengue fever is the most
common mosquito-borne
viral diseases in the world.
Dengue fever is an illness
caused by infection from a
vrius transmitted by the
Aedes mosquito. There are
four types of the infectious
dengue virus (serotypes 1
to 4). Types 1, 2 and possi-
bly 4 have been identified
on St barths. Infection
with one strain will pro-
vide protection only
against that particular
strain. Future infection by
other strains is possible.
Dengue is transmitted to

humans by a bite from an
Aedes mosquito that car-
ries the dengue virus. You
cannot catch dengue from
someone. Aedes Aegypti,
the dengue mosquito, can
bite all day and takes only
1 days to complete its life-

How do I know if
I have dengue ?
Symptoms usually appear
between 3-10 days of being
bitten. Dengue fever is char-
acterized by the sudden
onset of high fever, which
can last up to 7 days or
more. It is often accompa-
nied by one or more of the
following symptoms
intense headache, back
ache, body aches, joint
pains, loss of appetite, nau-
sea, vomiting and the devel-
opment of skin rashes.

Whreca I ge moeifomto

-orl hcat oraizto :

The most severe form is
known as hemorragic
fever (which includes a
tendency to bruise easily
or other types of skin hem-
orrhages, bleeding nose or
gums, and possibly inter-
nal bt ... 11,'). A blood
test will often show low
platelets. Patients with
dengue fever often become

What should Ido if
I think I have dengue
fever ?
Contact the duty doctor in
St barths on 0590 90 13
13. The emregency room
at the hospital is fully pre-
pared to deal with dengue.
The doctors and medical
staff on St Barts are expe-
rience in dealing with
dengue and can provide
excellent care and advice.
If you have left the island,
go to your doctor as soon
as possible and tell them
that you may have been
exposed to dengue fever.

What is the treatment
for dengue fever ?
There is no specific treat-
ment for dengue or dengue
hemorragic fever. Patients
should rest, and drink
plenty of fluids. Pain
relievers with acetamino-
phen are helpful and
patient should avoid those
containing aspirin. Consult
a doctor. Supportive care
with intravenous fluids
and frequent blood test
monitoring can reduce

complications of the dis-
ease. In severe and hemor-
ragic cases, bloods trans-
fusions may be required.
Hospitalisation is recom-
mended for patients who
have severe symptoms and
for patients with signs
(e.g, low platelet counts)
that may lead to hemrro-

What precautions
can I Take ?
The best and only defence
against dengue is not get
bitten by an infected mos-
There is no vaccine or
<. But you can take
several steps to protect
yourself. Applyling insect
repellent is the way mots
people protect themselves.
But it is not the only way
: wearing long-sleeved
clothing, using mosquito
nets while sleeping and
staying in mosquito-free
rooms are good measures
to prevent mosquito bites.
Individual measures for
sick patients are very
important to prevent con-
tamination of healthy peo-
ple. These measures are :
insect repellent application
on clothes and inside
home protection with mos-
quito nets. Other measures
include insecticide sprays
and burning reppellent
oils. You should decide for
yourselves on one or a
combination of these.

Have you seen the
two performances
aboard La Loupi-
ote yet? Try not to
miss their last two
shows on Saturday,
January 23 at 6pm
for "The Naviga-
tors" and 7:30pm
for "Between
Island and Wing."
These silent specta-
cles combine acro-
batics, dance, poet-
ry, and theatre, and
are performed by
Franck and Del-
phine, two "nav-
ig'artists," who love circus
arts and sailing. They
arrived in Saint Barth
aboard their sailboat, La
Loupiote, and use the deck,
mast, ropes, and any other
nautical elements necessary
for their acrobatic adven-
The shows are suitable for
audiences of all ages and

last 20 minutes each. They
are free, but the artists are
not paid for their work and
invite the public to make
donations to help them and
their two kids continue on
their great adventure around
the world. Additional infor-
mation is available on their
website for La Loupiote:
or by calling 06 90 21 3157.

The Youngz
for Mardi Gras


There is a woman in St
Barth who is attuned to the
suffering of red-footed land
turtles. Her name is France
"mother turtle"-since for
more than 10 years she has
come to the rescue of these
reptiles, giving them TLC
when needed. Her home is
a sanctuary for all injured
turtles: those hurt in road
accidents or by construction
machinery, females having
difficulty laying their eggs,
or those suffering in captiv-
ity... no matter what their
handicap, France is there to
help them!
In five years, France has
"repaired" 30 turtles whose
shells were damaged, prima-
rily in accidents along the
road. The repairs consist of
using resin on the shell or
even fiberglass usually used
for the hulls of boats. Plus
all the nursing care France
dispenses with the valuable

help of the island's veteri-
narians. Most of the turtles
stay with France for a short
period of time, just until
they have returned to good
health. Once they have
healed, they are released on
the high hillsides that
remain a favorite habitat for
these turtles. If you find a
turtle that has been injured,
do not hesitate to contact
France at 0590 27 77 80 or
amaudo. france @ wanadoo. fr
