First Aid Training by Haitian-American Partners at WISEOP, Inc.
September 18, 2011
Many thanks to Dr. Guylaine Richard and Dr. Yanique Edmond for coming again to Henri Christophe Community school and providing training in first aid. With help from Abelard Xavier of Fondasyon Esperyansla, Drs. Richard and Edmond met with a group of 10 community members, including teachers from our partner schools. As you can see in the pictures below, they distributed first aid materials and provided hands-on instruction in how to apply first aid in the case of an emergency.
Haiti Partners believes strongly in the critical role that schools can play in a community’s development. In addition to helping our partner schools improve education for students, we are also committed to helping the schools serve their communities in other ways such as training for adults.
Drs. Richard and Edmond are with WISEOP, Inc., a US-based non-profit dedicated to serving communities in need. They are both Haitian-Americans and bring a special wealth of experience to working with our local partners. To learn more about WISEOP, Inc., follow this link: http://wiseop-inc.org/
