I am honoured to be participating in a medical relief and education mission trip to Port au Prince, Haiti, with members of Team Broken Earth Ottawa in November, 2018. Team Broken Earth is a non-profit group of volunteer Canadian healthcare professionals that provides medical assistance to Haiti and other underdeveloped countries, where some people wait for months with broken bones and other life-changing injuries. There are several Broken Earth Teams across Canada, including here in Ottawa.
I am currently a Resident in Orthopaedic Surgery at the Ottawa Hospital. This will be my first mission to Haiti, and I am really looking forward to the opportunity to share my knowledge and experience with the local medical teams while gaining new perspectives to bring back to my work and studies at home.
Team members have created their own individual fundraising pages to collect donations in support of this effort, as it costs approximately $2000 for each member to participate in the mission, which is funded only by donations and is conducted on volunteer time.
Please help us to reach our fundraising goals. Just click "Sponsor Me" to make a donation online. You will automatically receive a tax receipt electronically for your donation.
Thank you in advance for your generosity,
