Thank you for your support and prayers. The Sové Lavi clinic and all structures in Pont-Sondé have been spared any damage from the earthquake. Our staff is working at the hospital in St. Marc to treat victims being brought in from Port-au-Prince.
The John Hopkins students studying in Pont-Sondé at the time of the quake are home safe. In Haiti to work on iodine deficiency related issues, the team headed immediately for the disaster zone when the earthquake hit. After working in the streets of Port-au-Prince for five days and nights, one of the student doctors said,
“The Haitian doctors and nurses worked harder than anyone else.
When I think about the humble tenacity that came out in all of our interactions,
I worry a little if I will ever find that in myself.”
Sové Lavi means Saving Lives in Haiti Creole. The Sové Lavi clinic is located about 40 miles north of Port-au-Prince, the epicenter of the earthquake on the primary road for travel through that part of the country. Organization Sové Lavi is a 501c3 charity/Non-Governmental Organization working in Haiti. Donations for the earthquake relief are being accepted, please check the Donation page for more information.
Although our hearts remain heavy with the death and devastation, we look to the future and rebuilding of Haiti.
