Mrs. Mildred Aristide, former first lady of Haiti, will speak in Oakland on Saturday, Oct. 21
The event, sponsored by the Haiti Action Committee, will take place from 3-5 p.m. at the First Presbyterian Church at 2619 Broadway.
Aristide, a member of the Board of Administration of the University of the Dr. Aristide Foundation (UniFA), will discuss the remarkable work of UniFA and its newly built teaching hospital amidst the deepening crisis in Haiti.
Since the return of the Aristides to Haiti from exile in South Africa, they have continued their involvement with education and are preparing young people for a better future for Haiti.
The university’s teaching hospital now has over 5,000 students and faculties in medicine, nursing, dentistry, physical therapy, law, architecture, economics, education, and agriculture.
The community in Oakland and the Bay Area has long been connected to events in Haiti through the work of the Haiti Action Committee and Haiti Emergency Relief Fund.
