CCRMC Doctors heading for Haiti
Four of our CCRMC doctors, Brenda Reilly, Bill Peterson (not shown in picture), Pramita Kuruvilla and Neil Jayasekera, are scheduled to leave Monday to provide medical care to children and adults in Haiti. They are going with a nonprofit group called No time for Poverty, which is bringing health care workers to Haiti to work with Dr. Paul Farmer's group, Partners in Health. The team will work out of Saint Damions Hospital, which is the only free pediatric hospital in Haiti.
Here is Dr. Neil Jayasekera's interview with KCBS.
Many are still asking how you can donate. We have set up a station in the hospital cafeteria for donations to Partners in Health or you can donate online.
It is truly heartwarming to see the outpouring of support.
There are many ways to offer support. A google search will yield over one million results so there are many options.
Here are a few examples of online donation pages:
