Health Care for Haiti

Hi everyone! My name is Faizal Hussein and I am a 2nd year Doctor of Physical Therapy student at New York Medical College. I am raising money to volunteer for a service learning trip to Haiti in March 2019. In Haiti, I along with my fellow students will be volunteering our physical therapy skills in various clinical settings including orphanages in Les Cayes and Ile-a-Vache and a mobile clinic in the rural village. The clinic we will be volunteering at is the only clinic in Southern Haiti that provides Physical Therapy, Occupational therapy, and Prosthetics for the people of Haiti, making it a popular destination with few resources. A lot of people in Haiti receive no medical care or physical therapy at all and resources are scarce. Overall, medical care is poor and something as simple as a fracture can lead to significant disability. I would really appreciate any help you could give me in order to to assist with transportation and lodging costs, as they can be expensive. Donating to this service trip will be greatly appreciated by my fellow students as well as all those affected in Haiti.
