    Regensburg, 29.07.2010

    Chères Mesdames,
    chers Messieurs,

    mon non est Peter Schmitt. Je suis le directeur de l’école Pater-Rupert-Mayer-Zentrum à Regensburg, Allemagne. Le Pater-Rupert-Mayer-Zentrum est une école pour les enfants handicapés avec un centre pour les handicapés.

    Notre école aide l’école St. Emmaus aux Gonaives depuis presque trente ans. Comme le Pater-Rupert-Mayer-Zentrum l’école St. Emmaus entreprend un centre pour les enfants handicapés ou pauvres.

    Moi je viens de retourner des Gonaives à Regensburg. J’y ai travaillé honorifiquement pendant le mois de mai avec les handicapés. Pendant ce temps j’ai trouvé un jeune homme de Gonaives qui m’a aidé. Son non est M. Emmanuel Delavarre. Je lui ai montré des poignées simples pour qu’il puisse continuer à travailler avec les handicapés après mon départ pour l’Allemagne.

    Pour que M. Emmanuel Delavarre puisse encore travailler plus effectivement avec les enfants handicapés, je cherche un endroit pour sa formation pratique. Est-ce que votre hôptal offre la possibilité pour une formation pratique?

    Je m’adresse à vous au nom de M. Delavarre parce qu’il n’a pas encore d’accès à l’internet.

    Je serrais très heureux de recevoir une réponse positive de vous.

      My son currently attends Park School in Evanston. He is currently on the ventilator, has a trach and a g-tube. We would like to donate school supplies or items. Is there a contact person that I could speak with?

      thank you

    Please forward my request to Sr. Judy Dohner to visit St Damiens and talk with her on my next trip there March 19-27. I’m a PNP, able to volunteer for short term but frequent visits ( 7-10 days monthly except in July and August) . Could we meet some time during that week and consider any way I could be of help?

    Dear Father Rick,
    I just returned from Haiti with John Shattuck, I want to thank you for allowing me to stay at the hospital for 2 nights, I appreciate it and are humbled by the amazing work being done there. I hope the wharehouse is more organized for your needs now. I will continue to help John buy, fill and ship containers as often as possible.

  7. Dr Tom Grabenstein says:

    My name is Dr Tom Grabenstein. I am a Family Physician who has worked at the St Jules Clinic in very rural Petit Bourg du Borgne for the past 18 years. We recently have evaluated a 15 year old boy with biopsy suggestive of non Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. I would like to talk with you further about possible treatment for this nice patient. I am grateful you do have a pediatric oncology program. It is a blessing. Please contact me soon.

    Good Day Farther Rick

    I received a job proposition from Chile at Chile Health Care Providers .
    I’m from South Africa – applied on an ad – and attached my CV.
    When I did a little research on the internet I found the same words and pictures were used
    As on your web side.


    Please could you confirm with me if this place is a scam.
    To make money or trying to get girls into Chile.

    Would be much appreciated

  9. Vangile Moretsele says:

    I am writing from South Africa and would like to know more about Chile Health Care Providers Hospital. Could you please forward me the contact details of a contact person, especially from the Human Resource Department.

    • Robin Forestal says:

      Hi Vangile, Please do not contact Chile Health Care Partners. They are not affiliated with St. Damien Hospital and we are working to have them remove the content of their website. Thank you for letting me know you have been contacted by them. Sincerely,
      Robin Forestal

      • Judi Smit says:

        Through posting my CV on a jobhunting website, I have been contacted by Chile Health Care Providers. I am a little worried that this is a scam, since fees have to be paid before any confirmation of employment (although they say that employment is guaranteed. Should I give their “offer” any consideration?

  10. Vangile Moretsele says:

    Thanks for your prompt response Rob. The reason I wanted to know about them is that they have recruited me to work for them, according to them I should be relocating from South Africa on on 1 June 2012, in preparation for my commencement of my job on 07 June 2012 . Kindly advise if I should consider this offer or not as I am not farmiliar with the organizations at that end. Is it a legitimate organization or a fly by night organization? If it’s a legitimate organization do you have an idea why does it sound as if the whole organization is run by one person? Please advise.

    To whom this may concern

    I’m writing to you, representing our client, Love for Children, which is a children´s cancer charity that raises its funds in the UK, Italy and Brazil with activities soon starting in Germany.

    Reading the blog here made me very interested in the work that is beeing done at Saint Damien with support from NPH and I would like to know, whom I should talk to regarding how to support Saint Damien, perhaps with a parnership? What are the current facilities in the oncology department and what is needed? How many kids etc are getting treated at the moment etc?

    Thank you for your help in Advance.

    • Robin Forestal says:

      Hi Sissel,
      Thank you for your contact and interest in helping to support St. Damien and our programs for children in Haiti. I visited the website of Love for Children and noticed you have an office in Italy. We have an affiliate fundraising office in Italy that I would like to connect you with. I will send you a private email and put you in contact with that office.
      Thanks again,
      Robin Forestal

    • Robin Forestal says:
