THE STORY:

April Watkins wrote -

A dedicated group of volunteer medical professionals will be returning to Haiti June 3 - June 10, 2017 to provide medical care, and they need your help! A note from the volunteers: We will return to Haiti to provide medical care in Leogane, the epicenter of the 2010 earthquake. Our mission will include traveling to isolated villages to treat chronic and acute medical conditions to people who would otherwise go without care. People walk for miles through the mountains to see us. Once triaged, the critically ill are often transferred to the hospital via moto for more advanced treatment. One year we sent an 18-year-old woman to the hospital on the back of a motorcycle to receive iv fluid resuscitation and antibiotic therapy for Typhoid, a condition rarely seen in the industrialized world but a serious health threat in the developing world. The cost to transfer and to treat her condition was $15. It saved her life. Our work with Hospital St. Croix is helping provide Haitians a continuous healthcare network even once we are gone. This year we are sending a team of 16 medical volunteers that include a cardiologist, an internal medicine doctor, a geriatric MD, numerous advanced practice nurses, registered nurses, and technical aides. We will use your gift to purchase much needed medical supplies, to hire local interpreters, to provide medical transfers, and to support Hospital St. Croix. Your donation will not only change lives, it will save lives. Mesi Ampil! (Which means "thank you very much" in Haitian Creole).
