I was fortunate enough to serve 2 weeks of time to Haiti through Project Medishare in April of 2010 after the earthquake. As a physical therapist, it was a perfect time to be able to provide assistance to people in recovery as it was the only functioning field hospital immediately after so much damage. I was impressed with how Medishare was able to organize so many health care professionals during so much uncertainty in Haiti as it was trying to rebuild. Not only was the organization there to help the emergency need, already there was a push to train local Haitians to provide a sustainable health care model to their own as a long term goal of the organization. I am happy to say that they left such an impression with me that they still stay connected with me as I am hopeful I can help while being an "Ambassador" here at home!

I volunteered at Bernard Mevs Hospital for two weeks in May 2019 through the Project Medishare. I’m a pharmacist (with Pharmacists without Borders Canada) and my work consisted of elaborating some clinical tools. My experience was very fulfilling and I have the intention of going back. The local staff was great, very welcoming. I stayed at the hospital where I felt safe and well. I hope the work I did for them will be beneficial for the patients and the professionals. Thank you so much for this beautiful opportunity!

I was able to go to Port-Au-Prince Haiti for a medical mission trip with Project Medishare! This was actually my first trip out of the USA. While we were there we were able to help the lives of 27 locals due to surgical care. While there I was surrounded by a wonderful group of volunteers who had the drive to help other. I felt safe at the hospital I was staying at and I am so thankful that I had this opportunity!

Northern Arizona Volunteer Medical Corp (NAVMC) has just returned from our 36th trip to Haiti. Most of these trips have been through Project Medishare of Miami (PM). In June we went to Hopital Bernard Mevs in Port-au-Prince where we treated trauma victims, many of whom had sustained gunshot wounds in the violence that was occurring in small pockets of the city. This particular trip was quite a bit different because of the violence that has rocked Haiti this past year. PM was extremely thoughtful and supportive of our group as we made the decision to go to Haiti. They were instrumental in assuring that our volunteers were safe and well cared for while in country. As the organizer of most of these NAVMC trips over the last 10 years I have relied on PM to guide me and to help create an experience that makes our volunteers return over and over. The people of Haiti are suffering perhaps now more than any other time since the earthquake and are desperate for help. We felt honored to help out a few and to work with the local physicians and staff learning from them as much as they from us. Without the assistance of Project Medishare this would not have been possible and several lives would not have had the benefit of treatment of their injuries.

I have been to Haiti 30 times with Project Medishare for Haiti (PMH). This organization has helped support medical relief in Port-au-Prince since early after the earthquake in 2010. PMH has been instrumental in helping us reach out to over 300 patients requiring surgery to treat injuries and infections in a country that lacks the infrastructure and resources to provide care to many of its citizens. One such example is Woodjina, a 5 year old who we were able to care for ultimately saving her legs from severe infections. Now walking without pain, she has returned to school and has the opportunity for a normal life.

In April 2019 I arrived at Hospital Bernard Mevs as a volunteer nurse for a week. Stacy, who is a RT and wears many hats at the hospital, met me at the airport in Port au Prince. Stacy was welcoming and very helpful during my stay. The housing for volunteers is good, like a dormitory and air conditioned. Breakfast and lunch provided, assistance for dinner is offered.
The emergency room is the department where I worked. The staff was wonderful to work with, Gabriel RN, is one of the most caring, considerate nurses. The needs of the hospital are great, please donate. My only regret is that I don't speak Haitian Creole, I am trying to learn the language because I plan to return!

I volunteered here as an EMT for two weeks and had a great experience! I would recommend if you are looking for volunteer opportunities over "voluntourism". This clinic sees a lot of trauma for those looking to learn, and there are numerous opportunities to jump in for those who are already skilled. Coming with a bit of Creole or French speaking ability would be very helpful but is not vital. The genuine mission of this non profit, as well as the fair cost to volunteer, ease of sign up, engaging experience, and accommodating/friendly people involved make this nonprofit highly recommended. I hope to return next year!

Project Medishare is a wonderful organization. They provide amazing healthcare to underserved areas and provide access to medical treatment that the people of Haiti would not otherwise have access to. They provide teaching and continuing medical training for staff there as well. Supplies and volunteers come weekly to lend support and aid in teaching, helping and caring for the sick and injured.
It is an amazing community of people.

I was able to help out as a physician for a week in the ER. I was able to teach and provide care as well as learn. It was a wonderful experience working with the knowledgeable staff including doctors, nurses, paramedics and ancillary staff.

I completed a one week stay at Hospital Bernard Mevs in May 2018. From the moment I decided to follow through with this medical mission I felt thoroughly supported by the team at Project Medishare. Fundraising was made easier through their donation page and instructions on how what to expect when in Haiti was accurate.
While in Haiti, we always felt safe. The lodging was very comfortable and the catered food provided on a daily basis (breakfast and lunch) was delicious. The team at the hospital were helpful, knowledgeable and professional. I did some work at the wound care unit, the ER and pediatrics. All departments provided an interesting experience. I would love the opportunity to return to Haiti to complete another mission. I am incredibly grateful to have been a part of such an amazing organization and participate in a mission of providing care to those that need it most.
I included a picture of someone very special I met while in the pediatric unit.

I truly am grateful for Project Medishare and Bernard Mevs Hospital for instilling in me the humility of having to understand what goes on in the world of Emergency Medicine outside our bubbles and I cannot underestimate such an opportunity.
I also want to give a shout-out to Stacy, our coordinator, for going above and beyond to making sure all the volunteers were comfortable, safe, well-fed, well taken care of, loved, and entertained the entire time we were here. It was fitting we came during the middle of Mother’s Day celebrations in Haiti as you were like a mother to us all. Also big thanks to Jen, Sam, Raphael, Kency, Drs. Rivette (especially for the kind things you wrote!), Germain (for getting to hit the ground running on day 1), Gordon (for being the trauma magnet that you are!), Levequé (for letting me run the ER by myself for hours!), and Pontius (for being the best co-doctor to work with everyday!) for your kindness, professionalism, and warmth throughout this entire experience. There was never a bad moment and never an instance where I felt unsafe.

It has been a privilege to have worked with you all and I look forward to coming back soon. Much love.

Zach, the nurse who went with me, also had this to write:
“Thank you so much to everyone that donated and made my trip to Haiti possible. I’m still processing all that I saw and experienced, but the trip was incredible, and I can honestly say that we made a difference.

We learned from the staff of Hospital Bernard Mevs and we shared with them our knowledge and experience as well. We worked on patients with spinal injuries, gunshot wounds, electrocutions, and congenital illnesses. We treated babies that were so malnourished, they required intensive care. We gave our blood, sweat and tears, and will be sure to return one day and do it all again.”

I volunteered for Project Medishare for 2 weeks in August of 2018. The facilities and housing is barebones, but effective. The staff were welcoming, and I found it easy to get acclimated to the hectic world of Haitian medicine. I felt the whole time, and felt that I was making meaningful contributions to the hospital.

I've volunteered for Project Medishare numerous times and I love the work they do. In my experience with them, we worked mostly with expecting mothers in Port au Prince and the Central Plateau region of Haiti. A lot of the work we did together was to make sure the women have safe, healthy pregnancies and post birth, make sure the mothers and babies are educated in all the information they need and get the medicine and treatment to continue to live healthy lives. It is always a fruitful and wonderful experience to work with their hard working, compassionate team and I can't wait to volunteer again.

After the earthquake that rocked Haiti I travelled to Bernard Mevs with an Emergency Room doctor from Florida Hospital in Orange City that I worked with. Before leaving Florida the decision was made that I was not to travel with the group as a paramedic would not be useful. Well Dr. Wayne Barry insisted that my presence would be helpful and I was once again on the welcome list! The most exhilarating week, full of hard work and endless nights that changed my life forever! I had been on mission trips to Mexico before, but nothing compared to the work in Haiti. I still keep in touch with a young woman from Canada that brought a sick infant to Bernard Mevs. She, with some strong supporters are operating an orphanage in Carries and has adopted the baby stabilized by Bernard Mevs and his twin brother. I can never thank the staff and those who allowed me to experience Haiti and all its beauty enough! I will continue to support this nonprofit and hope to one day return.

I am a family practice physician practicing in a small rural community, yet I always feel the desire to help people affected by disaster. I am on a Federal disaster team, deploying multiple times a year, and went to New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina with the Red Cross. A lot of deployments treat family doctors like they are not valued, sending out the surgeons and the ER docs. When I was invited to assist Medishare after the earthquake, we went to work almost immediately. I was able to offer my full range of training, taking care of injury patients, rehab patients, a STEMI patient, and OB. I worked 12 hour shifts each day until I got on the plane to go home. I slept on a cot with mosquito netting in a big tent right next to the hospital tent. I worked with wonderful interpreters, nurses, and USF residents, who did an amazing job. There was an atmosphere of teaching and learning. The patients were grateful, full of humor, and so resilient! I would go back in a moment, but it is hard to raise the funds. My church had to help me get to Florida, and donation dollars flew us from Miami to Port Au Prince. I had always wanted to volunteer in Africa, but here, right off of America's southeast coast, is a little country that desperately needs help to maintain these services which have roots here for over 20 years. I highly recommend this experience!

I volunteered every year for a week in Hospital Bernard Mevs with Project Medishare from 2011-2015. Every year there was such incredible improvement in infrastructure as well as the knowledge level of the staff. It was still a challenging place to work due to the lack of overall communications ability between hospitals and of course the lack of certain medications, lab tests, and equipment. I know it has continued to improve in subsequent years and I am anxious to return. The Haitian staff and parents (I'm a pediatrician) are wonderful. I donate every year because they do such good work.

This is an organization that emphasis medical services delivery while fund-raising and self-promoting is not the focus. With Medishare your contribution is used to ' help the helpless" and not to finance a gigantic administrative bureaucracy...…...this is "money well-spent".

A very poor Haitian young man needs a third surgery on his leg that was broken one year ago in a motorcycle accident. I dropped him off at medishare hospital in Port Au Prince Tuesday, March 27th. I do not have the money to pay for the 2500G per day hospital bed and as yet undetermined fees beyond the 40,000G requested up front for the operation to repair a "pseudoarthrosis of tibia and femur".
The wife was told last Thursday that the cost for a hospital bed was 1000G. Today, Monday-three days later, she was told the bed will cost 1500G. Today they were told the cost for the hospital bed is 2500G per day. Then after paying the 40,000G they were told-no available beds now so come back tomorrow. Maybe the surgery will happen tomorrow maybe not but the hospital has the 40000G they demanded. I am saddened that the poorest of the poor in Haiti cannot receive care in a place like medishare (which receives incredible dollars in aide).....pathetic

Dear Vmeade58: We are very sorry to hear of your friend’s experience at Hospital Bernard Mevs. Project Medishare for Haiti partners with Hospital Bernard Mevs in Port-au-Prince to provide medical volunteers, training, medication and other assistance. Hospital Bernard Mevs is a privately-owned hospital that is independently operated from Project Medishare. In the Central Plateau, where Project Medishare has worked for nearly 25 years, we operate two health clinics and implement several programs that provide thousands of poor, vulnerable Haitians with access to lifesaving healthcare at no cost to them. We are able to do this thanks to the generous support of donors. We appreciate your feedback and will share it with the leadership at Hospital Bernard Mevs. Please reach out to us at info@projectmedishare.org and we will see if there is anything we can do to help.

This was my first overseas volunteering trip and it was amazing. I wasn't sure what to expect since I've read stories of other organizations where you are "voluntouring" instead of actually using your skills to help back. But from the minute I got to Bernard Mevs I felt like I was able to use my skills to help patients. You also can't help but learn new things every day. The staff at Project Medishare (especially Stacy) made us feel extremely welcome and were so flexible at finding everyone's comfort zones. I will definitely go back again.

I am Dr. Margie Gerena Lewis or Dr. Margie. The people of Haiti are warm and caring. In many ways, they remind me of Puerto Rico my home. I immediately felt at home and welcome when I arrived to Haiti. I had the privilege to participate as a volunteer physician with Project Medishare this past July, 2017 and I know I will be back. The needs are great. However, their contagious passion to continue to improve, to grow, and to build up a much needed health care system are definitely present in the daily actions of all the staff members at Bernards Mevs Hospital and Medishare. I learned through them that perseverance, grit, and hope for a better future are intertwined and needed to build dreams. Nothing worth fighting for comes easily. I hope I never forget those words again. Keep moving forward. Pa'lante! Never give up. I am eternally grateful to all of them my new friends and colleagues. Hasta pronto! à bientôt!

I’ve been a volunteer twice now with Project Medishare and within the two years I’ve worked with them they have done amazing work for Bernard Mevs and has grown exponentially. My first trip I was only able to stay one week and of course it was life changing in which I needed to return. This recent trip I was able to stay for two weeks and of course I feel that when I return I need to stay longer. I am so happy to have found Project Medishare as they are doing wonderful work in Haiti.

When I was a medical student I worked with Project Medishare and lived at Bernard Mevs Hospital for several months. It was one of the greatest learning experiences I've ever had. Haiti is a truly fascinating country. It's people are interesting and loving, the history is deep and moving, and the medical care Bernard Mevs delivers is so incredibly needed. It was such an amazing experience to start to understand the strides the country is making and to directly work with people who need and cherish the care Bernard Mevs provides. During my five months there, I saw many volunteers come to Haiti and have their minds opened. In a world that needs a little change, this was what my heart needed -- a call to challenge myself to make it better. Cherie Haiti. -- Dr. M, Atlanta, GA, USA

Project Medishare at Hospital Benard Mevs is incredible. I have volunteered there twice, and each experience is more wonderful. The Haitian staff is very welcoming and helpful. The Medishare staff on site is amazing, and makes the trip so easy. They truly care about each volunteer. The work done to help the people of Haiti by both staff and the volunteers is beyond words. I highly recommend volunteering at this hospital through Project Medishare.

The first time I went to Project Medishare in Haiti I went with a co-worker that had never been on a humanitarian trip before. The experience was amazing. The value that volunteers bring with their experience in their respective fields from R.R.T.'s , R.N., P.T., M.D. to help in the education of skill sets for the Hatian staff was amazing. Though I must admit every time I go on these trips I always leave with so much more than I came with. I know I will be returning. Hopefully with another co-worker that wants to experience the amazing feeling of sharing knowledge. My rolling duffel is always filled with donated supplies that are difficult to come by in other countries, yet so basic such as tape to enable one to do their job. The hospital has staff that coordinates the volunteers and are on site at all times, they are amazing at what they do. I would encourage everyone to think about going to Project Medishare to share your skill sets in your field, you will in, return receive more than you could ever expect. Fritz Perry R.R.T., N.P.S.

Project Medishare provides significant healthcare and health infrastructure in rural and urban communities in Haiti. What drew me to this organization is their focus on capacity building. One of their goals is to help locals become truly self sufficient. The staff, whether it is the administrators or medical professionals genuinely care and put their all into the work they perform. Volunteers come wanting to make a difference, and the fact that they come back time and time again is evidence that they feel their contributions are valued and needed. Some of the most vulnerable patient populations receive what is sometimes the life-saving care that they need. As this organization continues to grow, I could only imagine what continued tremendous long-lasting impact it will have in Haiti for years to come.

I love this organization! I believe in everything they stand for and I cannot wait to come back as a volunteer in the future!

I have been to Haiti multiple times with Project Medishare at Hospital Bernard Mevs in Port au Prince. It has been an amazing experience, and the work done by this organization and the hospital it supports is phenomenal. When I first started there in 2010, there were virtually no Haitian physicians capable of staffing the ER. Over the years, the hospital has grown, and the staff is now simply amazing. Haitian Physicians now staff the ER 24/7, and they are outstanding. the nursing staff in all the departments is fantastic. They too have come a long way in 7 years. There is a pediatric residency there that just graduated their first class of pediatricins. This has been such an amazing contributionto healthcare in Haiti. Overall, Project medishare is an amazing NGO, and has contributed a great deal to improving the life and health of the people of haiti.

I've gone to Hospital Bernard Mevs three times with Project Medishare. I'm planning to go again soon. It's really encouraging to see the changes and the strides that have been made at the hospital. Volunteers like myself, were initially told to work along side the Haitian staff and teach when needed. It wasn't long before they taught me more than vice versa. The staff has a lot of compassion for their patients. Because of their circumstances, they must be very creative with the medical equipment and materials they have. Project Medishare has been coming to Haiti since long before the earthquake. Their passion is helping the Haitian people to live a healthier life.
I feel blessed to still be able to participate in their mission. Most volunteers say one thing in common: that the experience has changed their lives forever.

I went to Haiti with Project Medishare on an extended volunteer trip to offer my services pro-bono to their medical efforts. They are making an impact on so many levels in Haiti that I left after my trip wondering what more I could do to contribute to their cause. They have Haitian staffed and run trauma programs that, from what I was told, were all run by foreign volunteers after the earthquake, so they have really come a long way and continue to employ hundreds of Haitians in their various programs around the country. I wish more people knew about this incredible organization because it seems like they fly under the radar way too much compared to the impact and the work that they are doing. I would highly recommend going on a volunteer trip with them if you can, and definitely contribute to the cause. It was obvious from being in Haiti that they are making an impact on a large scale with less funding than most other organizations who do half the work that they do.

I had the great privilege of volunteering last month in Haiti with this organization for the 5th time since the earthquake, and every time I go to Haiti, I am even more impressed than the last time at their incredible operation. They have created a state of the art medical facility on par with trauma hospitals in the US with just a tiny fraction of the resources. Talk about making something out of nothing—Project Medishare has accomplished this with very limited resources, and a lot of times, they rely on us volunteers to pull the weight of helping with fundraising for their lifesaving efforts, which we are always happy to do. I’m so impressed by their ability to train the Haitian staff so that they are now totally running the hospital thanks to trauma care training over the last 4 years, unlike right after the earthquake, when the medical care was given by us US-based medical volunteers. Most of the patients we saw during our volunteer deployment to train the Haitian medical staff would not have survived if not for Project Medishare’s trauma hospital, which I learned this trip is still the only trauma and critical care hospital in the country. It is really amazing what they are doing day in and day out at this place, and I encourage you to visit if given the opportunity because this experienced has changed my life, and opened my eyes up to the work of this grassroots organization that does so much more than any of the major organizations working in Haiti despite having a lot less resources.

This organization is great at hiding the truth about who they truly are and where they really have spent the millions of dollars they raised on behalf of the Haitian people. I volunteered with them several times and the more I went the more it was obvious that University of Miami bigwigs were taking advantage of the poor for their own PR. Funds have been used for salaries of UM doctors when they could hire more local doctors. It is a big scam!!!! Lastly, I personally witnessed the so called founder, Dr. Barth Green, screaming at people one moment then flirting with every young woman he could. Sad !!!
