Thanks to everyone who very generously donated medical supplies and shoes for Morgan to take to Haiti today! Morgan will deliver 150 pounds of donated supplies and volunteer her awesome physical therapy skills to the people living in one of the poorest regions of Haiti.
This is Morgan’s third trip to Haiti. She travels with the group Phoenix Rising for Haiti , a multidisciplinary team of medical professionals that treats thousands of people in the city of Port-de-Paix on the Northwest coast. The population there is completely underserved and has very limited, if any, access to healthcare of all types.
The team delivers a variety of medical services, including the casting and fitting of artificial limbs and orthotics, and treating musculoskeletal injuries. Morgan will spend her time over the next two weeks teaching patients how to walk with their new legs, treating children with neurologic conditions such as cerebral palsy and muscular dystrophy, and helping patients recovering from work-related falls and injuries.
Morgan says, “The weeks (volunteering) are amazing and deeply moving. We all work harder than ever, beat ourselves up, lose sleep, get sick, and feel great! It’s shocking how much we can help these people, via hands on treatment, information, training, and simple equipment.”
Best of luck and safe travels, Morgan!
