Welcome Friends and Family! These pictures are from my past mission trip to Peru. I am excited to announce my next opportunity to give nursing care to orphans in Haiti. More ...

Dear Friends and Family,

            I am thrilled to share with you the news that I was the only one out of nursing class at the Denver School of Nursing to be selected to serve on a Global Health Perspectives in Haiti in March 2014.  This exciting internship partners with the non-profit organization called Love Takes Root.  The Denver School of Nursing faculty member leading our internship, Barb Wilkerson, is a pediatric nurse practitioner and she started this organization with her husband Dr. Rick Wilkerson. Please check out their website Denver School of Nursing has partnered with Love Takes Root for the past two years and it has been through the generous donations of supporters that allowed a new orphanage to be built in Jacmel, Haiti to replace the orphanage destroyed by the Earth Quake in 2010. 

Our internship will focus on transitioning the 50 Haitian orphans into the newly constructed orphanage and providing clinical care for the orphans and the surrounding community.  Our goal is to empower Haitian health care providers while teaching preventative healthcare practices in order to enable these families to thrive independently long after our departure. I am so grateful for this chance to contribute my nursing skills on a global level and would be deeply honored if you would consider partnering with me and help me get there and support the work. All associated funds are due to Denver School of Nursing on February 1st.  My goal is to raise $1,600.  This money will cover the flights to Haiti and more importantly it will provide needed funds to donate medical supplies, equipment, and program support for the Love Takes Root orphanage in 2014.  Family, if you were planning a Christmas gift would you consider a donation in place of a present.  This would be a great help to me and appreciated.

I would love to keep you posted as I prepare for, attend, and return from this life changing experience.  Please let me know if I can include you in emails about this internship or any questions you might have! Thank you so much for your thoughts, prayers, and considerations. 

Thank you,

Brittany Roggow
