What I Will Be Doing
On this trip, Global First Responder will be continuing its new initiative of partnering with local hospitals in Haiti to support sustainable healthcare development. There will be a continuation of the shared goal to equip hospitals with the skills, education, and supplies they need to provide health care for patients and staff. Volunteers on this trip will not directly provide the health care, but they will instead work side by side with local physicians, nurses, paramedics, and other staff to share knowledge and skills. We are beginning where there is the greatest need: emergency and general medicine as well as pediatrics. Be a part of our partnership in Haiti, today!
A Little About Amy Thompson
For many years, I have wanted to do volunteer medical work. As a single parent, I needed to wait until my daughter was out of high school. She is now in college and it is a great time for me to pursue this passion. I left my full-time employment and will only be doing traveling (locum) jobs to allow more time for volunteer work.
