A Little Healthier Because of FOTCOH

As I come to Haiti this May, I come with a little different perspective. My daughter is pregnant, expecting my first grandchild in September. One of the women I saw today is also pregnant and due this September. It made me think of the trials of having children in Haiti. As a provider, I see a number of babies brought in by aunts because mom died in child birth. I also see some kids that are starving because moms have to decide which child to feed. My granddaughter will be born in a hospital having had prenatal care. She will be seen by a pediatrician who will monitor growth and development. We take so much for granted for medical care in the United States. As I care for the patients this trip I will try to give whatever assistance I can to make these families a little healthier because FOTCOH is here.
