Today we hear from September Team volunteer Therese Trainor, who is currently at the clinic working along side the other medical volunteers in Haiti. Therese wrote to us this story:
“There are a ton of amazing citizens of Haiti. The one I met that really stood out to me was Preacher. He is always pleasant with respectful to everyone. He works very hard when he here working as a translator for FOTCOH. He is constantly trying to improve his English during his downtime as he is a radio preacher on the weekends. He also translates for others at the local churches in the area. He wants to ensure that he is 100% knowledgeable in his work. He is a young man that anyone, anywhere would be proud to have as a son and we are lucky to have him as a part of our FOTCOH staff at the clinic in Haiti.”
Thank you, Therese, for sharing, and thank you, Preacher, for all your hard work!
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.
