MSF: Six planes with medical supplies redirected away from Haiti

This video from Médecins Sans Frontières shows some footage of their work in Haiti.

Six planes carrying much needed medical supplies had to be rerouted to the Dominican Republic due to over-congestion of the airport in Port-au-Prince. Medical professionals are already unable to catch up to the amount of injuries caused by the earthquakes. This kind of delay in receiving much needed supplies only make their work harder. We read one twitter post from a reporter in Haiti that said that everywhere he went he saw injured people who hadn't been treated yet.
