Consider Haiti 2018 Spring Trip

$3,350 of $4,500 goal

Raised by 45 people in 11 months
Created February 19, 2018

Hi. My name is Tom Plaut and I’d like your help to get a crew of 4 doctors, 2 nurses and 4 lay assistants back to Haiti for clinics treating over 1,000 Haitian kids this spring! 

This is my 15th trip and I’m hoping to raise $4,500 for vehicle rental, medicines and water filters. (Each volunteer trip member pays for their own airfare, room and board, which will amount to $1,200, plus a week away from regular jobs.)

If I can raise the $4,500, it will keep donations to our organization, “Consider Haiti,” free and clear for our in-county Haitian staff’s use in our 12-month programs.

This is me in 2006 doing height and weight measures prior to kids’ medical examinations.



Here are Pediatrician Derek Dephouse and Haitian colleague/interpreter Thevnel Edmond in our clinic in a small mountain village, Pyatt.



As we learned medical interventions are is not enough, so we’ve moved sustainable nutrition with goats and gardens. We introduced 17 goats in 2010; now we have more than 700. Each family of a child completing a six-month nutrition regimen is given a pregnant goat for meat and milk. We are collaborating with Seed Programs International, training our staff to train families in horticulture.

Consider Haiti began to build a small clinic facility in 2002, but realized it was not sustainable. Consequently, we turned it into an experimental garden for trees and vegetables. It also is a source of potable water for the neighborhood and used one of five sites for medical clinics.


PLEASE HELP MAKE THIS TRIP “REVENUE-NEUTRAL” BY DONATING TO OUR TRIP TODAY! 

Thanks in advance considering Haiti!
