Dr. Renaud Gerve grew up in the impoverished mountain area of Mombin Crochu, Haiti. The oldest of 7 children, he remembers the day his grandmother fell ill and was taken the 11 miles ( A 2 hour trip in the mountains) to the hospital in Pignon. Once there, his family found out that the hospital, which was the only medical facility serving that area at that time, didn’t have a doctor or a nurse. His grandmother soon died due to lack of medical attention. It was then that Renaud set his heart on becoming a doctor and returning to Mombin Crochu one day to provide medical care for his own people.

Dr. Gerve started his trip to the US in Miami, where he spent some quality time with his family. Then the first official stop was to Rochester, MN. Here he spent time with Board Members Dillon and Kimberly, helped with the annual fundraiser, and spoke to donors.
The gallery of pictures below are just some of the lovely items that were available for purchase, where all funds went directly to PFC. We are also working to get a video of Dr. Gerve speaking to the donors uploaded to our site.
