Delivery of medical supplies in Port-a-Piment

Six months after Hurricane Matthew devastated the commune of Port-a-Piment , the local hospital is still very active with patients coming from the Southwest coast of Haiti (Tiburon, Les Anglais, Chardonnières, Roche-a-Bateau, Coteaux etc..).

With the support of the Medecins Sans Frontières (MSF) organization, the hospital is now recognized for providing very good services. Everyone in town has something positive to say about the hospital and its staff. 75 patients are scheduled for treatment daily and 120 people are now employed at this facility according to Mr Pierre Van Heddegem, MSF Project Coordinator.

On March 26th, 2017, Konbit Pou Potapiman Inc, delivered 4 boxes of medical supplies donated by The International Surgical Health Initiative (ISHI) Global organization. The supplies included gloves, drapes, staplers,bandage rolls, syringes, IV catheters, suture sets, bottles of Nacl irrigation, curity bandages, gauze sponges etc…. These supplies were trusted to the hospital Medical Director, Dr Missole Antoine and to the Administrator Mr. Evens Pierre.

Huge Thank You to Westhill High School students of Stamford,Connecticut

During the week of March 27th 2017, accompanied by Mrs. Paule Edeline Orcel, KPP-Haiti General Secretary, Mrs Carolle Paul, KPP Vice President and Mrs Nicole Jean,KPP member, we visited the schools of Port-a-Piment including the national school in the nearby village of Potus. The scars of the devastation caused by the passage of Hurricane Matthew (crumbled walls, roofless classrooms etc..) were still visible. We were happy to see the kids at school as we encouraged them to maximize their efforts to learn.

At the National school of Figuiers, we took the opportunity to distribute to the students the school supplies graciously donated by the students of West Hills  HIgh School of Stanford, Connecticut.The kids were very much happy to receive these supplies.

On behalf of the students of the Ecole Nationale de Figuiers, the school Director and teachers, Konbit Pou Potapiman Inc, wants to thank the students of Westhill High school who donated the supplies such as such as crayons, calculators, scissors, binders, folders, markers, pens, pencils, rulers, paper and  glue sticks .

In addition, we would like to offer a special thank you to the Assistant Principal, Mrs. Claudia Obas LeGare of Westhill High School for her leadership and facilitator role in getting these precious gits for the students of Port-a-Piment.
