Thank you to our generous donors! We received $4,628 towards our goal of $5,000 for the medical conference in Terre Blanche, Haiti. Because of your gifts, HFH was able to provide lecture materials, meals and travel expenses for participants.
The board of Haiti Foundation of Hope, along with the 250 registered participants, extend their gratitude for your support of the 9th Annual Medical Conference held March 9. Doctors, nurses, auxiliary personnel and 141 student nurses attended. It was a huge success.
The number of participants was particularly amazing as Haiti had recently been in a “lock-down” due to demonstrations throughout the country.
The number of medical professionals who came to the conference despite the unrest was evidence of the hunger for knowledge in a place where continuing medical education is limited. There were two Haitian and two American presenters speaking on various topics.
Other benefits of the conference were that Haitian health workers were introduced to the Clinic of Hope, referrals to the clinic were made, and the clinic staff could present their facility and services with pride. Some Haitian health workers asked to volunteer at the clinic. We join our Haitian partners in celebrating this on-going ministry.
HFH is looking ahead to the tenth annual medical conference on February 15, 2020. With your support, we will be able to provide another one-day conference that is free for participants. The cost to host the event is $20 per participant and we are expecting another 250 participants in 2020. Our goal is again $5,000.
