Haiti Project 2010

Our 2010 Haiti Project will happen this July 12-25 focusing on ways to assist with ongoing earthquake relief efforts. We will provide education for medical staff and assist amputees with pain management by using Mirror Visual Feedback (MVF) therapy to help them deal with pain in their missing limb(s), also known as phantom limbs. We will provide clinic/urgent care for patients in our partnering setting based on immediate clinical needs. We will also provide social services support for children and families in the hospital which will include the care of orphans. In addition, we will use art as a means of helping children describe their own feelings about their current health and living situations. We are looking for team members who are doctors, nurses, public health workers, social workers/activists, researchers, students, and artists with the following qualities:
  • Compassionate and understanding the needs of under served populations
  • Are able to adapt to a challenging environment and live without personal amenities
  • A team player
  • Leadership qualities a plus
  • Sensitive to cultural dynamics 
The application deadline is April 25th. If you are interested in being a part of this sustainable initiative, email zola@unifiedforglobalhealing.org.
