Text books for the State University School of Nursing
The State University School of Nursing was destroyed in the earthquake and 74 students and staff were killed. There are 30 surviving 2nd year students and 64 thrid year. They are determined to get back to their studies as soon as they can. The School is now run out of 3 tents and there is a leaky storage room with big cracks in the walls. . In the storage room are a few battered textbooks that were dug out of the rubble and a heart-breaking pile of dusty stained uniforms. When our nurses visited the school and brought back the photos we (Rose Charities) were determined to help.
Thanks to the Montreal School of Nursing and many others who helped us with advice and contacts we have a shipment of wonderful new french-language textbooks arriving in Haiti this week. The publisher gave us 30% discount and donated 30 free books.
