Ten years ago, devastation struck Haiti

A 7Mw earthquake struck the country, and since then Team Broken Earth has completed 50 medical missions to Haiti. Thank you.

In the ten years of Team Broken Earth we’ve experienced many different medical challenges. From earthquakes to refugee populations, our over 1200 volunteers have made many missions to remote and risky locations. We’ve learned a lot. We’ve bonded. And it all just galvanized our resolve to do more. We’re a stronger team for it.

But then came COVID-19.

Like so many others, the crisis really stopped us on the spot. It’s a world-wide situation that 99% of us have not seen in our lifetimes. At work. At home. It has changed and is still changing all our lives. For us, one thing remains the same. The team. A lot of our volunteers are now on the frontline of this pandemic, pulling long shifts away from their families and putting their patients first. In many ways, what they’ve learned in places like Haiti, Bangladesh or Nicaragua, has helped them when working during a crisis and we have no doubt they will prevail and make us all proud.

Our healthcare system is being tested now like it has never been before. Can you imagine that same situation in countries where medical help is often sporadic or even inaccessible? Where concerns like food insecurity were bad before the crisis and are worse now? These questions weigh on us. And while we take care of everyone at home, we must still try and find a way to reach those who need us most. To let them know we’re sending more than well-wishes until that time when we can once again send a team.

And you are part of this team. Help us support those places dealing with COVID-19 on a completely different level by giving.

Stay safe. Stay Strong. Be well.
