THE GENIUS CREATIVE PHYSICIAN DR. PIERRE RAYMOND OF HAITI: BRILLIANT HAITIAN PHYSICIAN LAUNCHES MOBILE CLINIC TO REALLY SAVE LIVES
Years ago when I feel in love with the Haitian people and began to work among them, a brilliant and common sense precious genius mentor came to me. His name is Dr. Pierre Raymond. And simply, he should be a top leader in the medical efforts in Haiti, perhaps a Haitian surgeon general, because I doubt any know as much as this immensely wise Haitian physician about Haiti and the relation of care best used from other countries like America.
As we sat over a meal, I stopped eating and picked up my note pad and realized real world class was in session, and I did not want to miss a drop. He discussed the all knowing action of placing a well in a high water area.........and he had to dress down in slum type clothing, and when he moved to try the water after days with those who would not touch it, a women grabbed him--"stop!."
"Why?" he asked.
"It is a grave yard!" He took the time to listen, as others offer "help" from attitudes that have failed for centuries--the true reformers and persons with solutions, emerge from inside the culture with experience.
Innately knowing the insights of the culture, The respected Dr. Pierre Raymond speaks from inside the Haitian community, and knows the strenghts and weaknesses of the people and the government, and others trying to sincerely help but who do not have the wisdom of a broadly experienced healer who understands the political webs and unique needs of this wonderful people. Helping Haitians with grave wells or inserting huge numbers of toilets over mini springs, which ended up as mosquito breeding disasters, is not what Dr. Raymond is about!.
HE HAS FOUND A FANTASTIC DEAL ON A USED HIGHLY MOBILE HOSPITAL CLINIC, WITH A SOLID STRONG MANEUVERABLE TRUCK MOTOR AND A MOBILE LARGE STOCKED MEDICAL CLINIC THAT CAN REACH THE UNREACHABLE AND SAVE IMMENSE NUMBERS OF LIVES.
The dying cannot walk to traditional locations immense distances from the shelters of their decimated living areas which are still almost entirely in rubble.
My family and many in the Haitian community have known this amazing man, physician and empathic healer. He is a man above men, and a profound example of service in integrity and faith. His reputation, service and actions for many long years are above all reproach. My family and friends count it a profound honor to call him brother and friend.
I know of few in the world who has his life of experience and common sense practical solutions.
Consider helping with this first highly cost effective mobile large service mobile clinic. Once larger organizations realize what a native brilliant physician knows better than any American, support will likely flow due t obvious brilliance and clear need to reach people who with infected amputations and hundreds of other illnesses are dead trying to reach a central port of Prince hospital.
Below is a small sample of material from a tiny local paper that reflects a very basic understanding of the man and this mission to save massive lives.
Less than one year ago a small group of friends in Naples, Florida gathered to discuss the possibility of putting a mobile medical clinic in Haiti to benefit the survivors of the earthquake. A few months later Community Mission for Hope, a 501 non-profit organization was born. In the months that followed, Dr. Raymond Pierre and a small group of doctors, nurses and supporters traveled to Haiti to render whatever aid they could.
On this the first anniversary of that devastating event, Community Mission for Hope has redoubled efforts to raise funds for their first mobile clinic. According to Dr. Raymond, "This mobile clinic will give us the ability to reach patients who might otherwise not receive the medical care they need". Anyone wishing to join this humanitarian mission to save lives is encouraged to visit their website www.communitymissionforhope.org.
Community Mission for Hope has also teamed up with Crowdrise, an organization dedicated to helping charitable organizations raise money through donations. You can become part of the team by going to www.crowdrise.com/communitymissionforhope and making a donation.
For two weeks Dr. Raymond, who lives in Naples, Florida, treated the injured in Haiti for their physical and psychological wounds. His church has members who have lost on average one to six family members. For some, their entire families are gone.
His wife's father, a customs employee, has not been found. His cousin lost her leg and sustained multiple other wounds. His pregnant sister-in-law endured two weeks in a coma and has lung damage. Now she is living with the help of her oxygen tank. For those of us who could only witness the events in Haiti on our televisions, Dr. Raymond and his family have lived it.
For those who actually know the people of Haiti locally or in the country, Dr. Raymond emerges as the real deal with a top solution. He walks with insight and wisdom in the chaos. Want your limited charity income to have a real effect. Get this mobile hospital running, and others will follow as the obvious need is seen met buy this amazing tool.
I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU PIERRE, AND YOU ARE AN EXAMPLE TO ALL MEN, WOMEN AND HEALERS, OF THE BEST OF THE BEST, AND THE TRUE SPIRIT OF LOVE AND SERVICE. I AM NOT WORTHY TO CALL YOU, "BROTHER AND FRIEND," BUT I WEAR SUCH AN HONOR OVER ANY OTHER HONOR.
Give and make a miracle start..........www.communitymissionforhope.org.
