Haiti has a huge need for medical professionals. The haitian people suffer from a wide variety of medical problems that could be greatly benefited from having more doctors. An example of this is the country's infant mortality rates - they are 100 times greater than the rates in the United States. The number of doctors per 100,000 people in Haiti is 25, 155th in the world. Thankfully, making a difference is relatively easy - it only costs around $10,000 in US dollars to send one student to medical school. That's just over $2000 a year! A volunteer with Samaritan's Purse met Wislande earlier this month and was impressed with her desire to serve others in her country. I volunteered to set up a Fundrazr to help make Wislande's dream a reality. HERE IS A LETTER FROM WISLANDE: My name is Wislande Dolcius, I am from Haiti, I am 22 years old. I live with my family in Cite Soleil. Cite Soleil is a trouble area, a lot of crimes, poverty ,prostitution, lack of education, life comes with no promises. As I believe in God, He always shows me a way to do good. I graduated from Louverture Cleary High School and I have my baccalaureat diploma since 2010. My greatest desire is to be a doctor to serve the community. My family is unable to help me fulfill my dream of becoming a doctor. I find a medical school in Dominican Republic (Universidad Autonoma de Santo Domingo). It is about two sessions per year,each session has 5 months, I am available to take 23 credits to start. I am kindly requesting your financial assistance to help paying for my studies. Thank you! - Wislande Dolcius END OF LETTER You can contact Wislande directly by sending her an email at dwislande09@ymail.com or by calling her at+509 3802-4418, or +509 3764-1441.
