Home from Haiti Reflection from Rachel Spikes

It has been a busy week trying to get back on schedule while still thinking about all the events of the past week. I went on this trip with the expectation of getting a first hand look at a country that is struggling to recover from a devastating natural disaster. The people of Haiti and people from all around the world are working side by side in Haiti and are making significant strides at improving the living conditions within Haiti. It was encouraging to see so many people who were working with the Haitian people in the recovery effort and reaffirms my belief that people of different beliefs and cultures can successfully build relationships. It is amazing that even in a difficult situation there were no shortage of smiles and laughter that was shared throughout the week. Where there was a shortage of supplies ingenuity was used to create what was needed at the moment. For example, I seen one healthcare worker make a chair out of cardboard, foam and netting. I am happy to say that although building structures may have crumbled after the earthquake the heart of the Haitian people remains steady.
