When she first came to Haiti, soon after the earthquake in 2010, she worked on logistics as a Field Officer for SBHF.

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.
"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.
