Helping Haitians provide sustainable healthcare and education to the poor of Haiti
Helping Haitians provide sustainable healthcare and education within their local communities in Haiti.
Geomed-Haiti focuses on supporting Haitian people to further their education and then use that education to provide healthcare and education to those that can not afford it in Haiti. Our mission became even more needed when on March 12th 2010 A 7.0 Earthquake devastated Haiti. Since that time we have been working with our Haitian neighbors to provide healthcare and education to their local community.
This summer we were able to support a Haitian medical doctor and his wife who is a kindergarten teacher come to the United States to have a class sponsored by SOLO about wilderness medicine. This allowed them to learn emergency care for children and adults. Rachelle a kindergarten teacher was able to work with local kindergarten teachers to learn new ways of teaching children.
Their trip was a success and now they are back in Haiti using the skills they learned and have opened a pre school and kindergarten and providing outreach during the cholera epidemic.
