Cap Haitien, Haiti

A fraction of the patients slated for surgery that day patiently await their turn during the long surgical days. Working at the Vision Plus Clinique (VPC) in Cap Haitien opened my eyes to the unbelievable need for eye care in some of our closest neighboring countries. Through the efforts of talented doctors like Dupuy Pierre, Guerline Roney and others at VPC, many of the unserved Haitians are increasingly getting they eye care they need.  It was a privilege spending two weeks with them.  They run an amazing clinic and anyone interested in visiting them for skills transfer should contact me to discuss further!
