The fishing community of Dame Marie
Though accessible by roads, small crafts and by sea, the westerly fishing community of Dame Marie still proves an isolated area. As such, practicing medicine can be a bit of a hardship. A couple of years ago, the operating room of the local hospital was returned to full function, enabling a visiting team to perform over thirty, life saving surgeries that week. It was part of a veterans visit from ST. Francis Hospital in Hartford, Connecticut to ten hospitals in four Haitian cities during October of 2011.
