A visit with PROFAMIL in Haiti

This past June, I had the opportunity to travel as a photographer with IPPF/WHR staff to Haiti. The trip was organized around the inauguration event for a new prefab clinic that was recently completed, but was also a chance to meet with our Member Association, PROFAMIL, and see some of the work they're doing in the field. A year and a half after the earthquake, tens of thousands of people are still displaced and living in tent cities. We found that PROFAMIL is working hard to make sure their services are widely accessible, and they continue to strive in reaching the most vulnerable.

In the slideshow below, you can see some of my photos from the trip. Included are some views inside the tent city of Delmas 33, PROFAMIL Youth Promoters distributing information and supplies, the inauguration event for the new clinic (called MLK), the many clients waiting to be seen at MLK the next day (approximately 25 people waiting, inside and outside), clients receiving care, and a view of the street outside the new clinic.
