Haiti- Day one with MamaBaby Staff.

By Jennifer Gallardo

 I visit with our staff and give them each their gift. They have written notes welcoming us which are taped to the walls. I write notes with all their names and our names and tape them next to their welcome notes. Then we sit in a circle and chat. They tell me I speak more Kreyol than before. I use my dictionary and fumble through communication. I give them a 30 minutes class on essential oils, which they seem to enjoy immensely (part of their enjoyment is hearing me struggle with my Kreyol). After class I give them deep blue shoulder and arm massages with coconut oil. I believe Deep Blue is now their favorite product and I will need to send them some regularly. They are very happy and said it worked wonderfully on their aches and pains!
