Subject: Help for friend in New Orleans

I do not normally write letters like this but these are not ordinary times. I am praying that the six degrees of separation might be able my friend my friend Kim Keene, who is in charge of the oldest hospital in New Orleans- Trouro Infirmary.
Yesterday they had 4 hours of generator time left, were stranded on the 2nd floor and above, and had 1200 people (patients and staff). Looters were banging at the door and they only had a handful of security guards. She is trying to find a way to get the people out as they had no water, limited supplies and with no electricity there is no life support and people will start dying.
Trouro, an independent Jewish hospital in the garden district, has been completely ignored- it has not been put on the emergency evacuation plan and no news stations or papers have covered what is happening there.
She called desperate to get someone to notice them.
I am appealing to you if you know anyone who might be able to get them noticed (media or governmental) and taken care of, please forward this information.
