I have been invited to Haiti to train 50 professionals who work with families to become Certified Infant Massage Instructors. They will teach families whose lives have been challenged by earthquakes, hurricanes and the challenges of living in a country with the highest poverty rate in the world how to give more nurturing touch to their infants. Infant Massage can help children release stress, increase resiliency, develop a loving connection with their parents and improve immune function.
Two trainings have been set up for us in March, one in Port-au-Prince and the other in the northern part of Haiti. But in order to go, my fellow trainer JoAnn Lewis and I need to raise funds for our airfare and land travel, and the materials needed for the trainings.
