I volunteered as a physical therapist with Healing Hands for Haiti (Boston based team) in April 2010. Given the post-quake situation, there were additional stressors for first-time volunteers/visitors to Haiti like me. From my first introduction to HHH via Frank Shirley (orthotist), I felt as though I was in capable hands with a team of experts who knew the landscape, understood the culture of the people, and were similarly committed to providing quality patient care. HHH not only helped me to feel safe as I traveled around the island but also feel welcomed. They care about the paid staff who they employ and appear to have the respect of locals. Their reach in Haiti is broad as is their heart.

Their commitment, dedication, and professionalism are commendable!
