Hello friends and family. I have been so fortunate to be picked for an internship in Haiti this summer through GHP.

Global Health Perspectives is an organization that partners with a non-profit organization Love Takes Root. LOVE Takes Root grew out of a medical mission trip that was taken by Dr. Rick Wilkerson to Port Au Prince, Haiti in 2010. While working at a hospital, Dr. Wilkerson saw an adjacent shelter that was filled with children. He realized  that it was important to connect the orphanage with sources for their basic needs (e.g. clean water, food, clothing and shelter) Deliver tools and lessons for basic education, Arrange for the children to be medically assessed and help address as many of their medical needs as possible, Assist them financially, and explore a means of income to eventually become an independent, self-sustaining organization.

Additionally, children in Haiti are in desperate need of improved nutrition and access to adequate healthcare. Many children in Haiti suffer from HIV/AIDS, diarrheal diseases, measles, malaria and pneumonia. Similarly, they have high rates of fatalities due to injuries. It is essential that these children be provided with the opportunity to live a healthy life. All children deserve adequate shelter. The streets of Haiti are not a suitable place for children to live and it is essential that buildings destroyed in the earthquake of 2010 be rebuilt in an effort to provide children with a safe place to be. Sustainability is essential in a country such as Haiti. For many working in international relief and development, there is the knowledge that individuals and services will greatly change over a chronologically short period of time.

I am so happy to be a part of this amazing organization, and a once in a lifetime experience to be able to go on this trip and be able to provide my time and services to those in need. This is all possible through my school Denver School of Nursing. 

It would mean the world to me if you would be able to help me raise money for this organization. My goal is to raise $1,700 by May 5th 2014.  

This would cover:

needed medical supplies, food, construction materials for a roof, from clothing to paying the water utility bills, other equipment, and lastly airfare and lodging for me.

Any additional funds that will be raise will ALL be contributed to the organization. 

I will be posting updates, and will have any additional information that you may want/need.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read about this amazing journery that I will be a part of, and for any financial contributions that you have helped with.
