Recognized in the Queens Chronicle

Congratulations to HEAL Haiti founder, Gretha Fievre, and founding member, Immacula Samson! They were honored at the Queens Hospital Center Haitian Heritage Month event for their volunteer efforts in Haiti after the earthquake in 2010. Queens Chronicle contributor Kori Tuitt writes,

 “Gretha Fievre, a registered nurse, said the first time she cried in Haiti after the earthquake was when the U.S. Army physician in charge gave the staff a tour of the area. She explained how she kept her composure while tending to people in Haiti […] She is the founder of Health and Education Action League for Haiti (HEAL Haiti), a nonprofit organization that aims to improve Haiti’s healthcare system. Fievre is also working toward building a nursing school in Haiti.”

Our members were recognized for their passion and efforts to help Haiti.

“When you’re in a time of crisis, there’s a human nature in you that makes you do things that need to be done.” -Gretha Fievre

“My body was here, but my mind, my soul, was in Haiti. I didn’t see my loss, I just came to help.”- Immacula Samson
