Our group of 15 volunteers returned from a week in Haiti on 3/3/12. We were again based in Leogane and travelled daily from there to the surrounding communities, running mobile medical clinics. We treated 1,000 people this trip! Thanks to all of your generous support, we were able to hire a Haitian dentist to work with us for part of the week. He worked tirelessly, seeing 25 patients a day and relieved them of the pain they had been suffering from abscessed teeth.
Working WITH the Haitian professionals is a powerful experience. The future of health care in Haiti needs to be in Haitian hands and we very much look forward to partnering with those professionals, in our future visits, who have chosen to stay in their country and work with their people.
