On Nov 4th, the Haitian ursing school that MaAOHN supports graduted 35 BSN and 12 Family Nurse Practitioners - wow!  These graduates will fill a critical need in Haiti.  

There is another medical mission going to Haiti in March.  If you know anyone interested:  http://www.mobilemissionhaiti.org/

Are you a sewer? Jan Conrod is organizing our effort to send the team with homemade bags to carry their medications and vitamins home in. Give her a call at (617) 489-1247.

This is the wish list for the mission:

  • Tooth brushes and toothpaste
  • Vitamins (childrens', adult, and prenatal formulations)
  • Anti-fungal and anti-biotic cream
  • Saline eye drops and nasal spray
  • Tums, Zantac, and Pepcid (brand name or generic)
  • Reading glasses and sunglasses
  • Over-the-counter pain relievers, Tylenol & Motrin (adult, child & infant formulation)
  • Clean, empty prescription bottles
  • Non-aerosole insect repellant with DEET
