(this update sent by Jean Aitcheson, Festival City (Stratford) Rotary Club)
Jean Aitcheson is well known by many in our District having organized, facilitated and participated in many medical missions.  This is the most recent one - a cooperative effort between Jean's club in Stratford and the Wasaga Beach Rotary Club. Be sure to click the read more link for more information and to view the video for a first hand look at the work done on this medical mission.
This medical mission team was a project of Festival City Stratford and Wasaga Beach Rotary with Rotarian Steve Wallace.
 We worked in Dominican Republic Nov 18 to 30, 2018, giving medical care to the poor Dominican and the even more destitute Haitian descent peoples around Sosua and Puerto Plata. 
We treated about 1500 patients during 6 clinics.  In the video, you will see past AG James Sillers from Imlay City and Festival City Club’s international exchange student Laura Pujatti.  (Our AG Dianne Yundt was to be a member of the team but fell and was unable to take part.)
The translators, wearing blue Rotary shirts, are young Haitian descent men whom Steve has mentored to learn English and they translate into Creole, French, Spanish and English.  The team took 70 fifty pound hockey bags full of medical supplies from the Stratford Mission Depot to use and leave behind for the continued care of these people.  Here's a link to a short video of one of the clinics.
