Dear Friends,
I'd like to ask for your support to send me to Haiti with Partners in Health to accept their invitation to work on two clinical care projects that would help improve health care for over 3 million people in Haiti.

Please help me by making a donation to Partners in Health.

Years ago I traveled hours across the country in the back of a pick-up truck with a very sick young boy to receive treatment for him at PIH. Now, years later, I’m so excited to be returning to Haiti to work with the wonderful professionals at Partners In Health, the non-profit hospitals that Dr. Paul Farmer started.

My experience in Haiti began 7 years ago when I graduated from Johns Hopkins and  travelled to Cap-Haiten to work for a non-profit that worked with street children.  Now having spent three years in medical school, I am keen to return to Haiti and begin my work in a medical capacity.

I reached out to Partner's in Health to see if I could work for their Haiti team during my winter holiday from the University of Queensland-Ochsner Clinical School. To my delight, they've invited me to join them in Haiti to take on two major projects: First Project: classifying their blood and urine cultures to come up with an antibiotic protocol specific to their population. Second Project: to synthesize treatment protocols for the top 10 internal medicine problems that they encounter at their 17 medical sites around the central plateau of Haiti.

The policy at PIH is that all volunteers must pay their own way including airfare and room and board. I need to raise $2,500. This is where I need your support. I’m asking that you make a tax deductible donation to PIH through me. Donating to this great organization now, will help make my trip and dream come true. No amount is too small!

Click on the link below to donate online. The money will be held in an account and then donated to PIH in your names. I will mail you back a donation receipt from PIH for tax purposes if you include your name and address. For anyone not comfortable making an online donation you can mail me a check, made out to Partners in Health, and I will send them in together. Again, I will send you a receipt for your donation. Send checks to me at: Jessica Lozier, 2229b Brainard St, New Orleans, La, 70113.

Thank you! Mesi Anpil! For more info on where I'll be working...
