Remote Area Medical did not travel to Haiti in 2020. The year started with a climate of unrest that made it unsafe to travel to the region. One year ago, the COVID-19 pandemic was in the early stages around the world, and knowledge of the future and how widespread this would become was very limited. Travel restrictions and new guidelines were being put into place on a daily basis, and weeks of limitations turned into months.
These same travel restrictions remain in place around the world, even now, that prevent RAM and our very dedicated volunteers from returning to Haiti. Before the pandemic, our volunteers and staff had great success seeing medical and dental patients and were expanding to give vision services as well as delivering much-needed school supplies to the community.
We have not lost sight of the desired outcomes and goals for this program - early detection of disease, efficient treatment, and an increased range of services in remote areas of the country. Our dedicated volunteers and staff remain committed to RAM’s mission to prevent pain and alleviate suffering by providing free, quality healthcare to those in need.
Your gifts will allow RAM to continue the reach of the mission and we are grateful for the support our program has received in this time of global crisis.
