PORT-AU-PRINCE, HAITI--09/02/07-- Christelle-Melenchy Fortius waits to be taken to the USNS Comfort.   Fortius needed surgery to fix her double cleft lip and palate. Her lip was operated on but not her double cleft palate.  Doctors aboard did not have time to fix since their stay in Haiti was only five days.  U.S. Naval Hospital Ship, Comfort, based in Baltimore, Maryland deployed to Central and South American on a medical humanitarian mission, including a week stay in Haiti.
