Margie Gerena L.
Review for Project Medishare for Haiti Inc, Miami, FL, USA
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!
Dr. Margie: Thank you for taking the time to leave this well thought out review. Positive comments like yours are what keep us motivated to continue doing or work. We would not have accomplished so much without the help of volunteers like you!
