Joyce Van Ryn Haiti projects

Joyce, a dedicated nurse, volunteers regularly in Haiti, especially since the earthquake in 2010.  She will give a talk and slide presentation about her volunteer service in a country best described as: “Haiti is a shakespearian tragedy, beautiful and sad at the same time, a dream denied, black power personified in a country, a threat to be dealt with, a canary in the mine that shows what is wrong with the world as it is, a country with a beautiful culture, music, art and a legacy to be proud of even though the present is very hard. Haiti is forever at a crossroads.”
