From Jim Ansara, Heidi Burgess, Andrew Johnston and David Walton 

As the year comes to a close, we’d like to take some time to reflect on all those that have volunteered their time and energy for the construction of the National Teaching Hospital at Mirebalais, Haiti. Each volunteer went above and beyond the call of duty, putting in numerous hours of hard work and completing many projects in a short amount of time. Everyone adjusted well to living and working in Haiti, everyone got along with each other on site, and many of us forged long-term friendships.  All in all, we could not have asked for a better group of volunteers.

From all of us on the Mirebalais Construction Team and everyone at Partners In Health, thank you for the incredible contribution you have made towards the project.

I could not have asked for a better group of people to work with. You know you have a great job when you look forward to work in the morning and I have you all to thank for that. I have heard only positive responses from our on site team about the work you completed. It has been a joy to work with each and every one of you. I wish you the best of luck in the future!
