Review for Haiti Nursing Foundation, Ann Arbor, MI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Changing Haiti one nurse at a time! That is what this non-profit is all about. I am proud to be associated with the Haiti Nursing Foundation and the FSIL school of nursing in Leogane, Haiti. Board Members are "hands on" and visit Haiti to help the school and to monitor that donor support is going where it is intended. I have personally been to the school six times and was privileged to witness several graduations. Each nursing graduate has their own story of coming from poverty and deprivation to emerge as their family's first college graduate. The families come to the graduation ceremony any way they can get there - walking, by "tap-tap" or in a rocking chair resting in the bed of a pickup truck (a grandmother of a graduate did this). The joy, the hope and pride radiate from their faces as they watch their graduate be capped and receive a diploma. Have you heard "Give me a fish and I eat for a day, teach me to fish and I eat for a lifetime"? As a baccalaureate prepared nurse, the FSIL graduates provide for themselves and others for a lifetime.
