Only a week to go before our next medical trip to Marigot, Haiti! A team of volunteers got together on October 21 to separate and pack the medicine that will be used in the clinic. This year, we have pre-packed doses for common diagnoses to streamline the in-country pharmacy operations. This should allow us to see even more patients per day.
All of this wouldn't be possible without the the amazing community of volunteers, board members and contributors that support the Heart of Medicine. Thank you so much for your generous donations of time, money and supplies to help us bring primary care to the underserved communities in Haiti!
In addition to medicine and supplies, we will also be bringing along coloring books, crayons and toothbrushes this year. A local girl scout troop organized a neighborhood drive to collect these items, which will bring smiles to the faces of the dozens of children that we will see next week in Marigot.
Here are a few photos of the volunteers hard at work this weekend. Please check back next week to see pictures and read stories about our activities at the clinic.
