Talking to team members last week, it struck me how quickly we all snap back in to our own routines. Work. Family. Sleep. Work. Family. Sleep. It does feels good but more often I think about the work left to do in Haiti.
Last week, Deb Noseworthy did an amazing presentation on her experiences as a physiotherapist with Broken Earth in Haiti. The focus in Haiti has been on emergency services with support services falling short. Deb faced the enormity of challenge with determination and professionalism. She touched a lot of people there.
Also last week, we made some great progress on our clean water initiative for the hospital in Haiti. Our friends at Columbus Communications have been keeping their foot on the pedal and the project’s gaining speed.
Had some good news from the hospital too. They received a solar power set-up and it’s now up and running. Reminded me of the blackout last time we were there. Amazing the things we take for granted. Here’s a place struggling for a regular power source and something that sounds as simple as clean water.
Lots of good momentum though, gotta stay focused on that. Been planning the orthopedics education course for October’s mission. Also started planning the Broken Earth Fun Run with the Running Room as well as a golf tournament with our friends at Glendenning. That’ll be a blast for sure. Stay tuned on that one!
Got a busy week ahead. Looking forward to speaking at the National Radiation Technician Conference as well as the Work Place Health and Safety Conference. Spreading the word on Broken Earth, the amazing team we have and the change we are all determined to make.
