Heading Home

After a final breakfast in Haiti we packed up, weighed our suitcases, said our goodbyes and headed to the airport. It was difficult to leave, but I think most of us were happy to return home. What an amazing adventure it was. Thank you to the stellar 2014 “Health for Haiti” students. You exceeded all…

Our Last Day in Haiti

This morning we visited Mother Theresa’s Hospital for the Dying. It is a beautiful and peaceful place where terminally ill patients are placed. The male patients are on the first floor and the female on the second. According to the hospital rules, the males in our group stayed on the first floor and the females…

Beach Day!

Today we had a wonderful day taking forty-three kids from Pastor Vincent’s orphanage and Good Shepherd Orphanage to the beach! Before I get to today, I need to start with last night. The students heard that there is a Domino’s Pizza in Haiti. And they wanted to go. So we went. We used the opportunity…

Health for Haiti Saturday

This morning we all walked to our first destination. After over eight hours on the bus yesterday, it was nice to walk a little! We visited Coram Deo orphanage which is located only a short distance from our guesthouse. Coram Deo is home for fifteen boys. It is also a school for 120 children and…

Health for Grande Saline

It was a long day, but a great day. We were up early for a “family” breakfast before boarding our bus to Grande Saline. We saw a very different part of Haiti today. It was a four hour trip each way (about half of that on bumpy, dirt roads). When we finally arrived in Grande…

Today we travelled to Carre Four Faille for a health clinic and health education. Below you will see photos from our day. Team Clinic: Carly, Danielle, Phil, Gina, Emily B., Emily C., Jessie,…

Another Busy Day in Haiti

We had another full day in Haiti. Several of the students enjoyed the sunrise from their beds on the roof. After breakfast, we headed out to the warehouse of the Swiss-based company, Vestergaard. We picked up the seventy-five Family LifeStraw units that we were able to purchase with the funds we raised.  Each unit will…

City Soleil

Bonswa from Haiti! We have just arrived back at our guest house hot, tired and pretty overwhelmed with emotion after our day in City Soleil. City Soleil is the largest slum in the Western Hemisphere, with 800,000 people in an area of about eight square miles. It is hard to put into words what we…
