The February medical team had a successful trip to Haiti. Both American and Haitian team members were busy. They hosted a medical conference attended by more than 60 Haitian medical professionals, held a week-long clinic for hundreds of patients, and gave out 106 pairs of reading glasses.
To top it all off, two longtime medical team volunteers from Oregon, Levi Cole and Janan Markee, were married at the church in Terre Blanche. The wedding was a huge celebration for the whole community with more than 800 guests in attendance. The bride and groom rode donkeys from the church to the reception. Janan’s parents, Joe and Linda Markee, both board members for Haiti Foundation of Hope, were also honored during the ceremony as they celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary.
Congratulations to Joe and Linda, and Levi and Janan.
