Steve’s Testimonial – November Team

How do you put Haiti in to words? This feels like my fiftieth attempt to write about my experience. Driving home from the Tampa airport I tried to explain to my brother about what I saw, smelled, and experienced. I talked about the tent cities, the burning piles of trash, and how awe

Jill White’s Testimonial – September 11 Trip

I can’t tell you how many times I started and deleted this testimonial. It is very hard to put into words the many emotions that I feel when I go to Haiti. The feelings are so big, and yet the words I type seem so small in comparison. There’s the joy I feel in seeing the children

Dr. Bruce Landon’s Testimonial – September 11 Trip

In a dark world where people so easily turn a blind eye to the pain and suffering of others a light shines brightly in People for Haiti. As a physician and veteran of many medical mission trips few compare to my wife and my September trip to Haiti. Dr. Ferreira and Dr. Leo Vieira und

Cheryl Landon’s Testimonial – September 11 Trip

So close… but yet so far…. Never in my wildest nightmares could I imagine what I was about to encounter when I stepped off the plane in Haiti. Always on my bucket list to participate in a medical mission trip, I never anticipated the sheer devastation and extreme poverty present

PJ’s Testimonial – September 11 Trip

After the earthquake in Haiti, I never imagined myself visiting.  And, a medical mission trip was the furthest of my thoughts. In fact, like most Americans it was easier to turn the news off and look away.  The conditions in Haiti never affected my day to day routine/life or though

Andrea’s Testimonial – September 11 Team

Emily White’s Testimonial – September 11 Team

I didn’t walk into People for Haiti blindsided, my mom, Jill, went on the January trip and after hearing her stories and seeing the pictures, I knew it was something I wanted to be apart of. No matter how many pictures you see, videos you watch, or stories you hear, nothing can com

Dena’s Testimonial – September 11 Team

Since People For Haiti was created 1 1/2 years ago, I have listened to many stories and read the testimonials of devastation, poverty and hunger and illness in Haiti. I just returned from my first mission trip with the 9/11 group.  And what a great group to spend my first mission w

Dr. Lisa Phelp’s Testimonial – September Team

As the plane touched down one year from my last visit to Haiti, I wondered if anything had changed.  While the majority of the rubble had been cleared from the streets, sadly the poverty and the feeling of desperation still remains.   This is when it struck me that I can’t wait

Dr. Robert Ferreira’s Testimonial – September 11 Trip

I’m not sure if it is the same gnat or just one after another, but for the millionth time,  I wave it away and concentrate on what my patient is saying.  This clinic will become a record for People For Haiti.  We will see 750 patients in one day.  I look out at the line of hund
