Mission 2011
Carol Aune
"Our (AHDH) 53rd Medical/Educational Mission in      
Haiti, from  February 17 to  March 4,2012,
was an
extraordinarily blessed and  successful mission for so
many reasons:
    First of all:  Our  extraordinarily
dedicated  Volunteers:
Imagine 40 volunteers from the
US and Canada; joined  by  five   
local   practitioners   and   four
senior  RN students from FSIL,
Electricians, Plumbers, MDs, RNs,
CNM, CRNAs, LPNs, Optometrists, Dentists, Dental
Hygienists,  all moved by the same desire to make a
difference in the lives of the population of that most
grateful community of LaVallee de Jacmel, and beyond .…
you can imagine:

   AHDH ARRANGES SURGERY FOR HAITIAN GIRL WITH HEART DEFECT
Elizabeth, a 3-year old from La Vallee de Jacmel, was diagnosed with congenital heart defect by our
then Medical Director, Dr. Walkens Desir. Elizabeth was very fortunate in that Dr. Desire knew her
diagnosis, followed through immediately and discussed it with Dr. Susan Jeanfeau who was one of
the  AHDH volunteers during the July 2011 mission.

With subsequent follow-up by Dr.Jeanfreau, connections were made with the HeartGift Foundation
in New Orleans to fly Elizabeth and her guardian, Ms. Perette Saint-Felix, on March 21 for surgery.

On 3/28/2012, after thorough examinations, she underwent repair of a Ventricular Septal Defect at
Children's Hospital of New Orlean with the generous support of HeartGift and the cardiac surgeons
of that institution. AHDH presented plaques to thank  HeartGift and  the Children's Hospital.
