What was supposed to have been a hostile invasion turned Thursday into a mission of mercy as convoys of U.S. Marines headed up the mountain from this northern seaport to deliver medical supplies to the desperately ill of Justinien Hospital. Patients suffering malaria, typhoid fever, AIDS, even a woman burned badly when someone tossed a lit cigarette at her, could hear the armored trucks trundling up the winding, crowded roads to the hilltop medical facility.

JERUSALEM - Israeli doctors were among the first to set up emergency hospitals in Haiti after its devastating 2010 earthquake. Israel also swiftly dispatched water-purification experts to Japan following the 2011 tsunami and trauma experts to Boston after the recent marathon bombings. Yet despite such high-profile disaster assistance, Israel ranks near the bottom among leading free-market economies in providing foreign aid to developing nations. Along with Mexico and Chile, Israel gives the least as a percentage of gross national income among members of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.

Saturday morning, nine doctors and nurses at Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center packed gauze, rubber gloves and other medical supplies before catching an afternoon flight from LAX to Miami en route to the Port-au-Prince, Haiti, airport today. They plan to assist doctors from the University of Miami, first at a field clinic at the airport and later, perhaps, in neighborhoods. This will be the first trip to Haiti in 25 years for Claudel Thamas, 53, a critical care nurse. Several of his cousins in Port-au-Prince are still missing after the quake.

Throughout Port-au-Prince, Haitians were trying, for the first time in 30 years, to dig out of their own filth. From their wretched, unsanitary hovels, they came at twilight, pouring into the streets by the thousands. Most carried homemade brooms and rakes, others used their bare hands to assault the mountains of human refuse that had risen about them for so many decades, largely unnoticed and insignificant, until now.
