Three nurses from Fife in Scotland helped out with health care in the poorest country in the western hemisphere last month.
Carole Hearten, Lou Davidson, Elaine Stark travelled to the Haitian island of La Gonave as part of a team of healthcare professionals organised by the charity Lemon Aid.
They vaccinated more than 700 children against typhoid, hepatitus B, Hib and meningitis A and C. Each child was also tested for malaria, anaemia and HIV.
Infant mortality on the island is over 30 times higher than it is in the UK – 175 children per 1,000 die before the age of five.
The charity also has plans to rebuild the island’s crumbling 34-bed hospital which has to service a population of over 100,000 with only three doctors and four nurses.
