Old Friends, New Friends

I attended the Midwest Haiti Partners Conference in Grand Rapids today and had the privilege of having Dr. Jean C. Alexandre stop by our booth. Dr. Alexandre is Haiti's former ambassador to the United Nations who also served as vice president of the UN General Assembly. These days Dr. Alexandre is a practicing OB/GYN physician. He is an extremely accomplished, smart and nice man.

He was excited to hear about Starfysh's focused and holistic approach to addressing poverty on the island of La Gonave.

I met a lot of other interesting folks today, too, including an old friend from a mission trip to Haiti back in 1998.
