Review for Project Medishare for Haiti Inc, Miami, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

Review for Project Medishare for Haiti Inc, Miami, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.
