Betsy Sherwood
Program Coordinator Betsy serves as the Program Coordinator for the St. Boniface Spinal Cord Injury Rehabilitation and Community Reintegration Program in Haiti. Since the earthquake on January 12, 2010, she has worked to transform a project aimed at immediate disaster response into a long-term, sustainable program that focuses on community reintegration for persons with disabilities. Currently, she is responsible for developing, implementing and coordinating disability programming funded through USAID and Christian Blind Mission. When she first came to Haiti, soon after the earthquake in 2010, she worked on logistics as a Field Officer for SBHF. Betsy has a bachelor's degree in communications and political science from Syracuse University and a master's degree in international social work from Fordham University. Prior to coming to Haiti, she worked in the field of child protection and refugee services in various locations throughout Africa.


A New Rehab Center Aims to Redefine Spinal Cord Injury in Haiti | St. Boniface Haiti Foundation

It will give them the ability to shift their mindset from that of a person who is sick - and lumped in with all the other sick patients at the hospital - to a person beginning to adapt to life with a disability," said Betsy Sherwood, the SCI program coordinator.
SBHF is partnering with Christian Blind Mission (CBM), an international development organization based in Germany, on the center. CBM is funding the project as part of their rights-based, community-based rehabilitation initiatives. "We are very excited about this aspect," Sherwood said. This will massively expand our ability to take on new persons with SCI," said Sherwood. But the team doesn't plan to stop at SCI. "The center will also be open to anyone who could benefit from physical or occupational therapy. We intend to hold general therapy sessions two days a week to service the needs of the community," Sherwood added.


Wheelchair Repair Shop Seeing Success | St. Boniface Haiti Foundation

"Our team works hard to keep our wheelchair users on the road by ensuring that their chairs are safe and fully functional," said Program Director Betsy Sherwood, who cites re-welding of foot rests, changing of tires and general tune-ups as the most common repairs.
The vast majority of wheelchairs are distributed to members of St. Boniface's program, who come from all over Haiti to receive specialized care. They are evaluated for what type of chair would be the best fit for them, Sherwood said, and the program team works with the recipients of the chair to ensure they can learn basic wheelchair skills and be more independent.
