Julmis has been working with CHI since the 2010 earthquake. To help provide medical relief, he started working as a translator for Dr. Chris, one of CHI’s co-founders.
Julmis says that when CHI first entered Arcahaie, medical care seemed “upside down and very rare.” When people came from Fondal for health care, many people suffered or did not make it on the way. He feels that CHI has greatly improved the quality of life and health care in the area, and has helped to educate so many people on various sanitary and medical issues, including how to use the bathroom in a sanitary manner and how to help mothers during childbirth.
Julmis is passionate about his work with CHI and education. Outside of his work with CHI, Julmis works as a math teacher at the secondary level. Julmis dreams of an even more beautiful Haiti in the future, with strong and innovative education systems which would empower more people and provide life-changing opportunities.
