Today we hear from FOTCOH volunteer Katie Fry:
“We travel from different parts of the United States to Haiti. The common goal forms a bond with our fellow volunteers, our interpreters, and other workers at the clinic – to help as many Haitians in need as possible – the burn victims, the domestic abuse victims, those with infected wounds, the babies who do not have enough to eat, the people with high blood pressure or diabetes. At the end of the clinic, we pray we have made a difference.”
Thank you, Katie, for everything you do for FOTCOH and for the people of Haiti!
How can you get involved in helping children and adults in Haiti?
You can help us provide life-saving support to the Haitian population in and around our medical clinic in a few different ways.
One way is by becoming a volunteer. Volunteer teams from the U.S. travel to Haiti to provide support for the most impoverished people in Haiti, who otherwise would have no access to medical care or wellness education of any kind. Team volunteers work side-by-side with experienced FOTCOH personnel, treating people who otherwise will go without any medical attention. All volunteers return home with a sense of experience and satisfaction unmatched in other endeavors.
Another way is by donating to FOTCOH. Funds go to purchasing medications, surgical supplies, and supporting our Medika Mamba program for malnourished Haitian children.
