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.
A Little About Sandra Beldor
Taking this trip gives me an opportunity to work with local Haitian medical professionals. It will help me grow as a volunteer by providing with a better understanding of the challenges the healthcare Community faced at Global level. The goal here is to initiate an educational partnership between medical professionals in the US and Haiti in order to find solutions that can lead to improvement in the quality of care in Haiti. It will also provide a window of understanding of tropical disease to the American volunteers.
