Autumn Dates Available for Helping in Haiti

September 12, 2011


Operation Blessing International (OBI), the humanitarian organization helping provide disaster relief in Haiti, invites AAN members to schedule trips to Port-Au-Prince to work alongside Haitian hospital staff in disease diagnostics, patient care, and education.

Weeklong volunteer visits are available the following dates:

  • October 8 to 15
  • October 29 to November 5
  • November 5 to 12
  • November 12 to 19

As first reported in the August issue of AANnews, visits are open to US members and each physician volunteer must have a valid US medical license, medical liability insurance, and should consult his or her insurance carrier for information on overseas coverage for humanitarian work.

Volunteers are responsible for their own round-trip airfare (OBI can recommend a travel agency). OBI provides all in-country ground transportation, accommodations, and meals. Typical trips last one to two weeks, depending on the volunteer’s availability. Arrangements should be made directly with OBI.
