Haiti Medical Mission Trip March 31-April 7

I have been presented with the opportunity to join a medical mission trip to Haiti through the mission outreach program at my work, St. Vincent Hospital. I will be traveling with various doctors, surgeons, anesthesiologists, nurses, and volunteers to provide medical, surgical, and spiritual care for the week of March 31st-April 7th.

Although a grant has been presented to the group to help out with travel expenses, the trip is still costly and I am trying to raise any extra money that I can. Each person attending will be paying extra baggage fees in order to get all of the medical supplies we need down to the facility in Haiti. That means we will all be traveling very light with just a carry on bag of essential needs for the week. The biggest expensive of course is the airfare , but there are also other fees such as travel to and from the Port-Au-Prince airport, food for the entire week we will be staying there, fuel, interpreter services, etc. We will be staying at Double Harvest (doubleharvest.org), approximately 20-30 miles outside of Port-Au-Prince. The Double Harvest facility has two operating rooms we will be taking full advantage of during the week we are their, by seeing approximately 8-10 patients a day for C-sections, hysterectomies, and hernia repairs. I have always wanted to be able to do a mission trip like this and feel that the timing is right in my life to do so now. I would appreciate all of the thoughts and prayers during my week of travels.

Any money raised over my goal will be put towards the entire groups expenses.

Thank you so much!
