Project Report | May 11, 2020
Rehab continues despite COVID-19

By Tim Holmes | Fundraising Coordinator

The current pandemic is affecting all parts of our working and personal life. The hospital has had to make the decision to close the Rehab Unit to outpatients while the virus is at its most threatening. However, the work with the inpatients cannot and should not stop. The staff are doing an amazing job in tough circumstances. 

Here is the story on one of the current patients, Dickerson:

Dickerson was a carpenter who had set up a business over the border in the Dominican Republic. His business proved to be successful which wasn't to the liking of another local carpenter who was losing business. Shockingly, his rival arranged for Dickerson to be shot. 2 gunman accosted him and he was shot 3 times in the arm and abdomen. 

Dickerson was taken to hospital and operated on. He was then sent back to Haiti and spent months being moved from one facility to another. With effective rehabilitation treatment a rare thing in Haiti, even now, finding the right support for Dickerson to overcome his injuries was hard.

He eventually was referred to our Rehab Centre and HCBH hospital, where he has access to the necessary resources and staff knowledge to adapt to his new environment. His goals are to walk and move again just like he did before and he will be supported all the way to reach those goals.

Your support is especially important during the tough times. Thank you so much.
