This summer, a group of 1st year medical students from Wayne State University School of Medicine will be traveling to Haiti for 10 days. While there, we will be working at orphanages, health clinics, and more.
We will be volunteering in areas near Port au Prince at 33/ Missionaries of Charity Home for Malnourished Children. Here there are approximately 170 children all suffering from various degrees of malnutrition. We will then visit areas such as the cathedral, and the palace, both of which were destroyed in the earthquake. After we will travel to Montrouis to the hospital Oganizasyon Sante popilè. Here we will work under the auspices of Dr. Jean Marius Gardy. The hospital serves over 57,000 living in the area. You can learn more about this hospital/ clinic at http://www.osapo.org/ Medical supplies are needed as they are always very short on any medical supplies.
As you may know, medical students don't have a lot of money and this trip won't be cheap, so we need your help! Your money will first go towards purchasing medications and other health supplies. Once that's paid for, we'll be purchasing at least 8 indestructible soccer balls from One World Futbols to donate to the schools and orphanages in the area. The rest of the money we raise will go back the participants to offset the cost of the trip and airfare.
Every bit helps and we thank you for every penny!
