Rose Charities recently completed a third nursing course for nurses and doctors. Many text books were sent as well as equipment for the hospitals.
We just received this email from Madame Duvilaire (General Secretary of the Haitian Nurses Association) –
“The EINDPS, Jeremie (a town outside Port-au-Prince) has received the books from Rose Charities and the dean, the teachers and the students are very delighted . EINDPS School of nursing Jeremie thank specially Rose Charities for this donation who will help 140 students and their teachers (to) give better care and received updated instead of outdated instructions.
May god bless Rose Charities for the good work they are doing in helping in the promotion of nursing in Haiti “.

The 2nd Rose Charities Canada Project Presentation Forum held at the Creekside ‘Olympic Village’ Community Centre in Vancouver attracted around 80 persons and represented a spectrum from those with close Rose involvment to those just curious to know more about Rose projects. Food was ‘pot-luck’ which resulted in a groaning table of delicious food and an drinks were available at a small donation bar.
Topics demonstrated the wide range of Rose Charities Canada involvment areas, both geographical as well as sectorial. Sadly, time, and the quantity of projects permitted only short 5 minute presentations, but this tight schedule also allowed a mid period for refreshments and all-important networking .
