On this trip, Global First Responder will be continuing its new initiative of partnering with local hospitals in Haiti to support sustainable healthcare development. There will be a continuation of the shared goal to equip hospitals with the skills, education, and supplies they need to provide health care for patients and staff. Volunteers on this trip will not directly provide the health care, but they will instead work side by side with local physicians, nurses, paramedics, and other staff to share knowledge and skills. We are beginning where there is the greatest need: emergency and general medicine as well as pediatrics. Be a part of our partnership in Haiti, today!

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. 

The purpose of this trip was to start a new initiative where we began the process of 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.

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!
