SECOND FIELD REPORT FROM HAITI
October 28 to November 8, 2016

Dear Friends and Supporters,
 

At the end of HWB’s 4-week relief effort after Hurricane Matthew, volunteers from the USA and Canada, Homéopathes Communautaires (HCs), and local medical clinical teams agree, “Supporting homeopathy in Haiti will strengthen the health of Haitians for generations to come.”
 

Serving remote areas hit hard by Hurricane Matthew meant traveling for hours (130 miles took 5 hours).  We bounced around in the back of a tap-tap on dirt roads with huge rocks and divots large enough to swallow a cow, or roads washed away with barely enough room for one vehicle to pass along the side of a mountain.

Every morning, the HCs found hundreds of patients waiting to be treated, and they worked tirelessly to provide care for each person.  Readily expanding their knowledge of how to recognize and treat infectious diseases such as malaria, cholera, typhoid, fevers, and parasites.  The HCs became very confident in their prescriptions; they also learned how to recognize and understand the effect that grief can have on the body.

As we organize the next teams to travel to Haiti, HWB-trained Homéopathes Communautaires (HCs) continue post-Matthew recovery efforts with tele-medicine support from HWB Clinical Director Lauren Fox, FNP-BC, CCH.
