Inspiring Story of Haitian Manufacturer Returning to Production


The team at Partners Worldwide values immediate action. Since the devastating earthquakes rocked Hati, the team at Partners Worldwide has aggressively looking to help Haitian entrepreneurs rebuild their country. Here's a great story from Jacqueline Klamer that inspires and validates what God is doing around the world. 


PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti - Ralph Edmond was fighting to re-open his pharmaceuticals business that was damaged in the January 12 earthquake.


He, his 82 employees, and their families were held up by a damaged $30,000 piece of production equipment that could not be replaced through Haitian channels. 1,800 miles away, in the science lab of a college near Lake Michigan, sat the very item they needed, gathering dust.


Hope College chemistry professor Mike Pikaart heard Edmond’s story during a conversation on post-earthquake business recovery in Haiti. In Edmond’s specific list of needs was a description for a high-pressure liquid chromatography (HPLC) unit. Pikaart read the list and remembered that an extra HPLC unit, donated to the college by a company liquidating its assets six years ago, sat homeless in the chemistry department building.
