January 2015 visiting physician volunteers

On January 21-23. 2015, Dr. Michel Ange Ferdinand, a family practice physician from New Jersey, was ecstatic to visit Leogane and work at the Rasin Foundation Medical clinic.  In one morning session, he was able to see 15 patients while other providers were also working.  He loved the community and the calming and welcoming atmosphere of the clinic and promised to return and connect us with other colleagues for the benefit of the people ofLeogane.


Thanks for new Gyn Exam Table Donation and Electricity

Thanks to Dr. Kenneth Pariser and Dr. Eva Balash, the Rasin Foundation Medical Clinic is fitted with a gynecological exam room. The clinic staff was very happy to also receive the equipment including office chairs and an autoclave machine. Also in the past two months, the clinic has been repainted and connected to the electrical grid! Thanks to all our donors who made it possible to bring electricity to the clinic.
