It took less than a minute on January 12th, 2010 for a 7 Mw earthquake to forever change the Caribbean nation of Haiti. Here, one of the poorest countries in the western world was dealt a mortal blow. More than 200,000 people were killed. Millions more injured, displaced, made homeless and eventually marginalized.
Team Broken Earth wants to change that. Our organization is composed of medical professionals who volunteer their vacation time to go to Haiti and provide badly needed medical relief. Our teams also provide the latest in medical education to the local staff as well as help in the rebuilding of the medical infrastructure.
Totally close to 80 medical professionals, our Halifax team has now made four trips to Port-au-Prince and are already planning the next. The team’s goal is to make two annual trips a year, working in the hospital as well as delivering outreach clinics to the local orphanages and teaching.
Team Broken Earth’s Halifax team needs you. Please help us make a difference in Haiti.
