A sweet 16 usually means a party and presents, but not for a Cambridge girl who recently got back from a trip to Haiti. Over March break, Kendra Lee travelled to the afflicted nation with her mom Daniela and volunteered with Haiti Village Health.

Led by Canadian Dr. Tiffany Keenan, the organization aims to provide sustainable health care for the Bas-Limbé region of Haiti by employing local medical and support staff and providing them with the training, tools and support to make them self-sufficient.

Its main mission is to improve maternal child health and reduce maternal, neonatal and child deaths, in addition to developing medical services, improved sanitation and access to clean drinking water, education and nutrition, immunization protection for all children, and strategies to reduce the incidence of malaria.
