WAYNE, N.J. -- William Paterson University nursing students Grace Gil and Lynda Amici traveled to Haiti  from Jan. 4 to Jan. 10 on a medical mission to provide basic care.

Gil and Amici were part of a team of 41 volunteers working with Foundation for Peace.

This was a wonderful opportunity for our nursing students to provide aid to the people of Haiti by doing basic medical screenings,” says Nadine M. Aktan, professor and chair of nursing at William Paterson. “Participating in a medical mission to Haiti is a life-changing experience that can enhance nursing skills beyond any lesson learned in a classroom.”

Volunteers distributed health kits containing toothbrushes, toothpaste band aids, soap, washcloths, and hand sanitizers as well as clothes and other donated items.

During their time there, they also attended a memorial church service dedicated to the lives lost in the 2010 earthquake that devastated Haiti.
