“Nathan Ruby, executive director for Friends of the Children of Haiti (FOTCOH), recently spoke at the Rotary Club of Los Alamos. He described the nonprofit’s work to provide life-saving medical support and education to the Haitian community at large at their clinic in Jacmel, Haiti. Ruby traveled from Illinois headquarters to acknowledge the exceptional volunteer work of Smith’s Los Alamos Marketplace pharmacist Katie Fry, who travels regularly to Haiti to dispense medications with FOTCOH. Fry was recently nominated at the national level for the Smith’s Community Service Award.”
Congratulations, Katie! Thank you for all that you do for FOTCOH!
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.
