From the December newsletter:
Medical conference – Our third annual medical conference for Haitian medical professionals was held in October while the HFH volunteer team was at the Clinic of Hope. There were 62 professionals in attendance (double the number from last year). The participants were excited about the knowledge dispensed and are hoping for a two-day conference in the future. Five people on the HFH team presented topics in English through our Haitian Creole translators.
Update on drought and storms – The food shortage due to drought and storms continues. Following dry conditions, Hurricane Sandy hit Haiti, bringing too much rain. You can help those in need by giving online.
Making a donation this holiday season? – Ask your employer if they have a matching gift program. Some companies match the donations of their employees when given to a non-profit organization.
