Partners in Health, the incredible organization that provides community-based healthcare to the poor, recently lost their beloved colleague Phyzeme Isly in the violence following local elections in Belladere, Haiti.

Phyzeme Isly, head laboratory technician for Partners in Health in Belladere, was one of the longest serving PIH staff members and a key figure in improving the quality of care at this site. The 10x10 team stands with Partners in Health in support of Phyzeme’s family, including his ten-year-old son Wansly.  And we encourage all of you, as part 10x10 community, to do the same.

In the words of PIH Executive Director Ophelia Dahl, “Such violence is deplorable, and strikes a community already struggling with poverty and injustice. In solidarity, we will continue to accompany the families and community at large in Belladere.”

In memory of Phyzeme, please join us in supporting Partners in Health as they help families directly affected by recent violence in Belladere.
