How Beautiful the Mountains

By: Dr. Kelly Crowdis, CVM Fieldstaff serving in Haiti

One of my primary purposes in going to Haiti was to train and help prepare vet professionals to go and help people in the countryside.  When I first arrived here in 2006, it was the biggest culture shock of all. I was assaulted by the crowds, the heat, and the smell of burning garbage. It was chaos.

In the second year I was here I had somebody steal stuff out of my house, I was exposed to rabies, and I contracted Dengue fever. I would get around 30 phone calls per day and 10 email messages with vet problems from missionaries around the country, or from a Haitian friend who had a crisis. I was burning both ends of the candle and it was very overwhelming. CVM would call and ask how I was and because of the way I was raised, I would say that things were great.
