Bringing a Nurse’s Training and Compassion to Communities in Need
We all know how important health care is to a local community, especially those in developing countries like Haiti. During her 9 weeks in Haiti late last year, Hope Bechard, R.N., a Canadian volunteer and HUFH board member, was able to observe firsthand how much of a difference having a nurse in a community can make.
With a shortage of trained health care professionals in Haiti, a skilled nurse can make a big difference.. A nurse can provide vital health education, help run our malnutrition programs, do assessments and prescribe some medications in areas without a physician available. Recognizing this need, HUFH is beginning a project called Sponsor a Nurse. Sponsoring a nurse is very similar to sponsoring a child. For $150.00 a month a nurse can empower her community and keep them healthy!
