This spring break, make a difference in the lives of others and learn about yourself at the same time. Travel to Port-au-Prince to assist with care of the children in the New Life Children's Home.
Students and staff will travel to Port au Prince, Haiti and work with New Life Children’s Home in Port au Prince to assist with care of the 100-130 children in the New Life Children’s Home some with special needs.
There will be opportunity to go up to villages in the mountains of Haiti with a team of nurses, our partner, Dr. Steve, interpreters, and other volunteers to provide medical care and nutrition. A medical clinic will be set up, as well as a pharmacy and a feeding program. The students will help to provide organization in gathering the patients in the triage areas, being with the patients as they wait to be seen by the doctors and nurses.
Because of the remote locations visited on this trip, participation is limited to ODU students with previous service experiences and/or pursuing medical and humanitarian professions.
