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 under the administrative direction of Guiga are building a program for others to emulate.
The support team, the Haitian support staff, especially Bonnie and Mike are gracious hosts beyond your expectations always there to lend a hand, give advice, be a friend and I would say, do so because it comes naturally not because it’s expected. There is nothing else to say about Guiga other than she is truly a genuine sole who will make you laugh, make you work, make you cry and is loved by everyone she meets.
As a physician, nurse, student or just someone who cares to make a difference they need look no further than People for Haiti. To my group of “13” you’re all the best and it was my pleasure to learn from all of you. To the 1500 hundred patients we treated you are what it is all about, you make it worthwhile. This is an experience you will never forget.
P.S. Already signed up to return in May.
