Global First Responder partnered with local hospitals in Haiti for the long-term goal of supporting sustainable healthcare development. The shared goal is to equip 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.
This trip involved Global First Responder members and volunteers going to Marrakech, Morocco. We worked to provide medical and humanitarian aid to locals.
Our volunteers offered medical clinics and health education classes and engaged in community service projects for the area. We worked with local physicians to provide primary health care for all ages. The health education classes covered general hygiene, disease prevention, infant care, CPR, and first-aid training. The classes were open to the public and health officials in the area.
We are always excited to be helping out, however, we particularly looked forward to working in Marrakech, Morocco—somewhere we hadn’t been before. We are grateful to have the opportunity to help to improve the lives of others and the well-being of communities!
On this trip, five groups worked together as a team to provide medical aid to residents of communities in and around Montrouis and Port-au-Prince. Global First Responder was excited to be able to work with Osapo, Project Medishare, Partners In Health, and Paul Chester Children’s Hope Foundation. A large team delivered large results!
