Many people have asked how they can help and what the response by Forward in Health will be. As the dust settles, literally, it is becoming clear what can be done at this time.
Physicians, nurses, and EMTs associated with Forward in Health have volunteered to travel to Haiti. If and when there is an organized need we will be able to send medical volunteers. We will not send people into an unsafe situation without food, water, medical supplies, a place to stay, or a place to work out of.
If you would like to donate money or supplies, monetary donations will be used initially to help rebuild the orphanage and visitors house run by our directors Lex and Renee Edme of Mission of Hope. Forward in Health has a close working relationship with Mission of Hope and know that this is a small well run organization doing excellent selfless work.
Medications, Tylenol, Advil, Motrin, children’s vitamins, antibiotic and antifungal creams can be collected and will be brought down when we travel.
