U of C students launch unique Haiti fundraiser

Some Calgarians will be shelling out good money tomorrow to get a small glimpse into the life of a poor man.

Some Calgarians will be shelling out good money tomorrow to get a small glimpse into the life of a poor man.

Faculty of medicine students at the U of C are hosting the Rich Man Poor Man dinner to raise money to help with the startup costs of a medical clinic in Bouly, Haiti.

“It is a very unique concept that simulates global poverty,” said Giselle DeVetten, organizer and member of the Global and Public Health Interest Group.

One person at the table of eight will be served the rich-man meal, consisting of steak and several side dishes, while the others will be served the poor-man meal, which is made up of rice, beans and vegetables.

Student Dave Campbell, who has teamed up with another medical student from the University of Tennessee and Partners in Health, will be heading to Haiti to set up the clinic at the end of December.
