I am a Registered Nurse and had participated in the GCF's last trip to Haiti (July 2009). My experience with Gaskov Clerge Foundation was unforgetable. I encountered nothing but professionalism at it's best! The compassion, caring and selflessness of the entire team was like nothing I had ever experienced before. Not only was it hard work but it was enjoyable! The participants and the organization itself demonstrated excellence in coordination of effort, quality of care and comaradarie.

GCF is very caring, people oriented, and passionate about their purpose. I wish them the best of luck in their continued endeavor and plea to alleviate the suffering of the Haitian people. I love the Foundation and I try to attend every year with my daughter who is a recent medical graduate. Hopefully my son who will be graduating soon as a physician can join us in the near future.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

exposure to medicine practiced in a Third World country.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

very dedicated people.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

save a lot of lives!

Ways to make it better...

we had our own proper setting.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

monetary permanent location issues. If they had more donations and one set place to do the work more can be done.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I wish we continue to have unity among the professionals that attend the mission on a yearly basis. L'Union Fait La Force!!!

I wanted to volunteer my services in Haiti but I wanted to be a part of an organization that was well organized. I was introduced to GCF. An Itenary package is prepared for you.You have a chance to review the package and decide if this is what you are volunteering for. The Pre-Mission orientation,volunteers get to meet each other before the day of departure. Receiving telephone calls and e-mail over the last few days before departure is quite reassuring. Arriving at the Airport with other volunteers and being escorted through baggage claims to your transportation, where you are provided with water and a snack. Arriving at your destination to find the organizers awaiting your arrival.The exitement of want to start seeing those people that we are there for heightens.Getting our assigned area,experiencing the careful planning that went into the great accomodation,meals and transportation, together contribute to us feeling appreciated. First night conference is oh so exciting, knowing what we will be doing the next day and how we will be going about it. Post conference after each days work is great also, what we did and how we are going to make it better the next day.Did I mention breakfast, I will have to say the best oatmeal that anyone has ever had is served there. For you to know how good it is you would have to volunteer with Gaskov Clerge Foundation.

GCF is an organization run by volunteers creating little overhead cost. The organization is run by Native born Haitians who want to better their former hometown of Les Cayes by providing basic medical care and sometimes surgery free of charge. For one week per year they provide a necessary opportunity for basic care in mobile clinics set up in churches and schools to as many as 3,000 adults and children. Most importantly they utilize local doctors and nurses in their mobile clinics as well as community members for logistics and transportation. They also hold forums for local doctors with their US doctors to assist in providing them with current practice trends and treatments.
