Volunteer PT/OT position in Haiti

Therapists and other medical providers frequently ask me how they can get involved working in Haiti. Because I'm not a fan of short-term volunteer trips without a longstanding relationship with a well-established organization in Haiti, I often don't have a lot to offer in that regard.

However, I recently became aware of a longer term flexible volunteer opportunity for PTs and OTs to cover a maternity leave this summer with FONHARE (Fondation Hatienne de Rehabilitation), a well-respected organization in the north of Haiti near the Dominican border.

FONHARE is flexible with length of commitment (their listing quoted "come for all or part of the time"), and they need therapists June-October.
