Haiti

Team Broken Earth is a volunteer task force composed of physicians, nurses, and physiotherapists from across Canada committed to delivering and improving healthcare in Haiti. Team Broken Earth returned to the Bernard Mevs Hospital in Port au Prince, Haiti in October 2014 to provide specialty and basic medical care as well as educational opportunities to the community. The team found that their greatest challenge was preparing for the trip to ensure that they saw as many patients as possible. They spent many hours developing clinic strategies to increase the numbers of patients in each specialty that they had on the team. This allowed them to attend to nearly four hundred patients, perform 30 surgeries and train the staff at the hospital on Infection Control and PPE with considerations on Ebola.

They also trained in wound care, PALS, Research, Trauma ER Nursing and Residents and Orthopedic Emergencies. The team considers their greatest accomplishment a visit to an orphanage where they were introduced to small boy who was discovered in the garbage, grossly malnourished and dying. The team transported him back to the hospital and restored the boy back to health. Team Broken Earth covered all of his medical expenses and made sure he returned to the orphanage and is well on the road to a healthy life. Team Broken Earth returns to the Hospital with large teams of volunteers year round to continue to make an impact on the community. They are now recognized across Haiti.

Floating Doctors Panama 2022

Imagine packing up supplies, flying to another country, hopping in a car to the nearest dock to then venture across waters to then set up a med clinic for a community of whom does not speak the same language you do. This is nothing more than a routine endeavour for the Floating Doctors organization. The journey these missionaries take is indescribable, going through the moody rain and beating sun is everything except a sign to go back, and a motive to move faster.
