Words of thanks from Partners In Health
From Paul Farmer
Although we are all scattered about these days, we are all aware of your ongoing efforts to support earthquake relief, and other PIH programs, through the LSO. We heard about the beautiful program and wish only that we had been there to hear it and remember the beauty of music. But even though we weren't there, the beauty of human solidarity comes through loud and clear.
From Ophelia Dahl
I can only echo Paul's words. We feel your warm and supportive embrace. Suzanne was moved by all she saw and heard that evening. Thank you to all of the groups that came together to provide support and relief for Haitians.
In Haiti, the work that continues hand to hand, day by day, in the face of such suffering is inspiring. Sometimes I feel that music is the best medium by which to convey both the magnitude of the catastrophe and the love and tenderness shown by countless others as well as the convergence of disparate groups to aid so many. Truly, there are no words that could do as eloquent a job as you all did that evening.
I hope our paths cross again soon and please convey our gratitude (on top of Paul's and Suzanne's) to the musicians and all involved in such a beautiful evening.
With warm wishes, Ophelia
