There’s a Niagara Escarpment community connection to Haiti. Georgetown is the location of the Canadian offices of Healing Hands for Haiti International Foundation Inc., which provides physical medicine and rehabilitation programs to Haitians with disabilities.
Eric Doubt of Georgetown is the executive director. Marnie Hughes of Georgetown shares this information: “Last November I had the privilege of being project coordinator for the International Conference of Healing Hands for Haiti in Toronto. I was fortunate to meet many individuals from Haiti, Canada and the U.S. who have dedicated the past 10 years to providing rehabilitative medicine and education to the disabled of Haiti. After yesterday’s devastating earthquake, what is left of their facility will be put to use helping, where possible, even more vulnerable Haitians. It would mean a great deal if you would consider directing your help to http://www.healinghandsforhaiti.org/. Thank you very much for considering this.”
