PORT-AU-PRINCE–After living and working as a nurse for ten years in New York City, Maguy Rochelin decided to move back to Haiti. She now lives in Port-au-Prince.
“I love my country,” she said.
Two months ago, Maguy was hired as Project Medishare’s Nurse Liaison. She helps Medishare stay in touch with partnering organizations like Healing Hands for Haiti as well as Haiti’s Ministry of Health.
It’s been a memorable trip for Maguy. For the first time since nursing school, she scrubbed into surgery today.
“This morning when I went into surgery I was in another world,” Maguy said. “It was amazing what I saw this morning.”
Maguy was here when Dr. Ragheb came to Haiti to assess the children with hydrocephalus, but this is her first medical trip with the organization. She said that so far, working with Medishare is an incredible experience.
“I feel so happy because people are coming from The States to help my Haitian people,” she said. “To me it’s great, and I feel so good about it. I feel that I am doing something so worthwhile.”
