What I Will Be Doing

Global First Responders is partnering with local hospitals in Haiti to support sustainable healthcare development. Our shared goal is to equip these facilities with the skills, education, and supplies they need to provide and care for staff and patients. We are beginning where there is the greatest need: emergency medicine and pediatrics. Be a part of our partnership in Haiti, today!

The purpose of this trip is to start a new initiative where we will start bringing many teams of volunteers to help train physicians, nurses, and paramedics to arm them with the skills and supplies needed to improve the quality of care that the hospital is able to provide to its population. This differs from a traditional “mission trip” in that we will not provide the care, but we will work side by side with the doctors and staff to share our knowledge and skills.
