We Are Nature is partnered with, The Free Clinic Corporation. We will be collecting medical tools at select beach cleanups to send to the poverty-stricken population of Haiti.
Inspiration for The Free Clinic Project
by Dominic Rivera
My brothers and I were inspired by our aunt, Dr. Valerie Francois Jacques. She is a young medical doctor who opened her clinic from the ground up, in Cap-Haitien, a city located country-side of Haiti. Once a month she would commit the selfless act of providing a free clinic to everyone, regardless of their financial stability. They are given medical care, free-screenings, and preventive education.
My brothers and I want to help MedPlus continue their quest to make a difference, and improve the desperate conditions afflicting fellow Haitians. We have witnessed Dr. Francois buying medical supplies here in the US and we have made small contributions ourselves. We hope that our new initiative will provide more help to such a great cause. Knowing that we live so comfortably, and that many Haitians don’t have access to basic necessities, we are determined to help Dr. Francois with her very overwhelming task. We hope through this campaign, to encourage other young doctors, dentists, therapists and professionals to follow in the footsteps of Dr. Francois and alleviate the suffering of their fellow countrymen.
