From Haiti to Uganda

Today I get to write about a very special person.  Her name is Paola Chanes-Mora

 

35411_1504731825324_2880592_n

I first met Paola in Haiti for relief efforts in 2010.  We were there 5 months after the earthquake that occurred on January 12th 2010.  The earthquake took approximately 160,000 people’s lives and effected over 3 million people in the areas region.  We had partnered together with Iniciatives De Paz (amazing organization in Puerto Rico) to volunteer in medical clinics in the most needed areas in Haiti.  This was some of the most intense work that I had ever been involved in.

We woke up early out of our army style cots and mosquito nets, worked long days in the hottest conditions, ate meals out of cans (cold) and were told not to complain as there were people outside of our gates who were starving.  We saw people suffering greatly as a result of the devastation from the earthquake.  As tough as the conditions were I was grateful for the opportunity to serve.  There were so many people that desperately needed medical attention and our group of doctors and nurses did the best that they could to provide hundreds of people a day with care.

I had a deep respect for all of the people that were there volunteering and truly helping the core needs of the people.  Paola was one of those who was really a light during this crisis in Haiti.  She had a way to bring happiness into all of the patients that she worked with.  She never complained and always kept a smile on her face.  To this day Paola goes back to Haiti and serves in medical clinics and orphanages in between her schooling to become a doctor.  Haiti is a part of her heart and home.

It has been 4 years since we worked together in Haiti but we have stayed in contact and have talked about the opportunities to bring clean water to the orphanages in Haiti that Paola is working in.  This is in the works and I hope to be back in Haiti soon working with Paola and the rest of the team.

But in the meantime Paola has decided to partner with For One Another and journey with me to Uganda and Kenya this year.  She has spent numerous times on humanitarian aid trips and I feel like she will be a huge asset to us for the relief efforts in Uganda this year as well as our continued work in Kenya.  She also spent two months in Uganda on a research project in 2013 and knows the culture and loves the country as well.  We really look forward to welcoming her into the work that FOA is all about.  She is in Haiti right now and she will be flying directly to meet up with me for our trip to Uganda.  This girl just doesn’t stop.  Ha!

I’m looking forward to a great upcoming trip to Africa and we thank you all for the support so that we can continue on in this beautiful work. – Carrie Beth35855_1504736345437_1570158_n

Copy of getting drinking water

120 Kids at the orphanage are drinking clean water and as a result are feeling better.  Check out these new pictures!!! Thanks to all who were a part of this project.  Over 1.5 years later the kids are still enjoying clean, filtered water.  This is wonderful!
