What a great group we had for this trip!
There was a good mix of veterans and first timers, but everyone had a profitable experience! We had a list of priorities to accomplish starting with providing medical examinations to the school students. It was a lot of work but well worth the effort. We now have a baseline to compare with future exams to help evaluate growth and overall health.
We also had a building project to get done which was a success under the hot Haiti sun 🙂 The construction team was able to put a roof on our new depot as well as giving some building lessons to locals along the way. This building is important as we bring in goods and supplies for various programs.
There is so much to experience in visiting a different country with a different culture and language and life experiences. There is always a give and take of each others lives; we can often help address some issues of poverty and illness and so on but the Haitians often display a lifestyle of resilience; overcoming the seemingly unending barrage of adversity.
Maybe you should consider joining us on an upcoming trip! 🙂
