Haiti Earthquake Relief
As many of you may recall, Nicole played a major contributory role during her time at UNIBE medical school during the 2010 Haiti Earthquake relief efforts. Much of her efforts during this time can be viewed in our Gallery section.
Unfortunately, tragedy has struck again and even stronger. The 7.2 quake, more powerful than the 7.0 quake that hit Haiti in 2010, which killed more than 220,000 people. The latest death toll as of Tuesday, August 17 has recorded 1,941 people and the numbers continue to rise.
The people and country of Haiti need our help now more than ever. We will be accepting donations currently that will be allocated specifically for Haiti relief efforts.
