Last year, MTS Healthcare was introduced to us when we were looking for a laptop to utilize at our trauma relief program in Wharf Jeremie outside of Port-au-Prince, Haiti. When MTS learned of the impact a new computer could make for our project coordinators, they were eager to help.
After sending the computer to Haiti, Andrea wrote to MTS:
“I think of you often as the new computer that MTS’ donation provided has made such a difference to the young people working there and to our ability to communicate a bit faster (when there is electricity and the Internet is working!)”
The MTS team is incredibly grateful to be able to help with such a great organization. We look forward to a long-term partnership with Aid Still Required.
As you may remember, in August 2011, Aid Still Required inaugurated this program in the worst slum of Port au Prince. Already neglected for decades, the 2010 Earthquake exacerbated the devastating poverty, in addition to increasing the PTDS and violence. The trauma relief program utilizes age-old holistic techniques related to meditation. Participants have requested over and over again that we return to the community, stating for some, it is the first time they “have no pain” or experience “peace and calm”.
We are truly thankful for MTS’s continued support and we will be updating them on the progress of our work while we are in Haiti in the coming weeks!
