Abélard’s story with CHI began when a medical team was working in his area but didn’t have an interpreter. At the time, he was working at a local bar as a bartender and he offered to come interpret for the medical team. He has been interpreting with us ever since and also works with our IT Director Steve Yagla to input patient records into our TEBOW medical records system. Currently, Abélard is officially apart of the CHI staff in Haiti and he is our IT Specialist handling patient records data entry at our Haitian Led Clinics, and he also still interprets for us as well. He shared that he truly loves his work with CHI, and this job helps to fund his schooling.
Abelard taught himself English by reading and speaking with others, and he hopes to learn Portuguese, Spanish, and Sign Language in the future. He also hopes to one day be a businessman and open a hotel or bar.
