October 8, 2012
I got back from Haiti late Saturday night. It was a short trip but one I will never
forget. I was thinking about how to share the experience with all of you and I
realized it was beyond my limited communication skills and certainly beyond my
emotional capacity to write about my experience in one sitting. So, I am going to try to break this down and share it, story by story, over the course of this week.

Around the same time, I learned about a local organization called MedWish International and I began working with them to deliver medical supplies to orphanages and clinics in each of the countries I visited. As I interfaced with Medwish I found myself more and more impressed with their mission and organization. Eventually I reached the point that working with them as an individual no longer allowed to me make the impact I wanted and I started thinking about how to expand the relationship with them.

Following the earthquake of 2012 the lack of emergency medicine was identified as a critical need in Haiti.
