Martineau Isaac…I am now in my fifth year of medicine at UNDH (University of Notre Dame Haiti). I have been doing some clinical stages at the hospital and I do community service in an orphanage near my house. My family is very proud because I will be the first doctor in my family.

I would like to thank the Keppels for what they are doing for me. Now I am close to my goal and I think that without the Keppels I would not be able to be what I am about to become.
