Looking for Leadership in Haiti

pihA good friend of mine gave me a book years ago while studying for his MBA in non-profit organizations at I.D.C. in Israel. The book is called Mountains Beyond Mountains: The Quest of Dr. Paul Farmer, A Man Who Would Cure the World  written by Tracy Kidder. It was truly an amazing book. Since reading about Dr. Paul Farmer and associates, I’ve followed up and contributed to various projects over the  years. The amazing thing is that his quest to change the world is taking place in the most over looked place in the world, Haiti. The people of Haiti don’t just suffer from bad luck. It seems like nothing goes their way. The problems they suffer, poverty, neglect and abuse are unparalleled.

It is in this unlikely place that Dr. Paul Farmer, Ophelia Dahl, and Jim Yong Kim thought to do the greatest good and founded Partners in Health (PIH). It’s fair to say that they have set the standard for health care around the world. But more then that, they are the face of humanity, respect and hope for all people.
