Posts Tagged ‘Thanksgiving’

In the spirit of Thanksgiving in the United States, we want to share this touching thank you note we recently received from an Emergency Room doctor who brought a group of 15 from Minnesota to volunteer at Hospital Bernard Mevs Project Medishare in Haiti:

“Dear Project Medishare,

First and foremost, I want to say thank you to all of you for what you are doing in Haiti.  Running a hospital in the middle of Haiti is a near impossible task. That being said, you are all succeeding at the task amazingly well. Given the resources and surroundings, what you do is nothing short of miraculous. I know sometimes you lose sight of all the good that you are doing, but you should all be incredibly proud of what you have built and accomplished.

On a personal note, I want to thank you Toni, Rachel, and Kathleen for helping me through the week. For me, going to Haiti and working for a week is challenging enough. Bringing a group along was in many ways challenging also. Fortunately, with your help, the experience for the group was amazing. I feel like we helped the Haitian people, we helped our patients, and I personally succeeded in opening the eyes of 15 people to the grace and suffering of the Haitian people. Everyone from the crew I went with came back to Minnesota fundamentally changed. Perhaps this was the greatest gift for me on this trip and I could not have done that without your constant support and advice.

It has been an honor for me to have the opportunity to work with you. Working with you and getting to know each of you has been another gift from Haiti that I will always cherish. I realize that things will change, but one of my enduring memories of Haiti will be the times I spent with each of you.

I firmly believe that what Project Medishare is doing in Haiti is nothing short of miraculous. Going and working there has been life-changing for me.  Probably the most difficult, challenging, yet the most rewarding thing I have ever done.

Be strong.  Continue the good fight as long as you are able.  What you are doing is amazing…..

Thanks again for everything,
Sam

P.S.  I will return…”
