I am thrilled to be participating in a medical relief and education mission trip to Port au Prince, Haiti, with members of Team Broken Earth Ottawa in October, 2019. 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.
This will be my second mission with Team Broken Earth, and I am really looking forward to returning to Port-au-Prince to help continue the work of our Broken Earth colleagues and to bring back new knowledge and perspectives for my work here at home.
As you can imagine, this type of trip is expensive to conduct. All of the work is conducted on volunteer time, but the team needs to provide medical equipment and supplies, as well as to cover patient expenses at the hospital in Haiti. There are also travel and logistics expenses for the team. The average trip cost per member is $2000.
Team members have created their own individual fundraising pages to collect donations in support of this effort, which is funded only by donations.
