Trip to Haiti benefits patients, volunteers


Walker said she told Horton to let her know when she was going. As a retiree, “I had the time,” she said. 

She was in charge of entertaining the children with activities at the clinic and to make sure the clinics went smoothly.

“It was a worthwhile trip” that would benefit others, especially teens, who might benefit from seeing “how lucky we are” in comparison, she said.

Dohner said he is writing a book for medical professionals to help them learn from his experiences. When he is finished moving his practice in Oneonta to a new location in the city, he said he would like to return to Haiti.

He said he is taking donations of items for school-age girls for a shipping container that will be going to Chantel in April. Items requested are white blouses, knee-length skirts, underwear, flower girl or formal dresses, sandals, sneakers, toothpaste, deodorant and feminine hygiene products. Lightly used clothing items are acceptable. Items can be dropped off at his offices at 6 Franklin Road in Walton or 41-45 Dietz St. in Oneonta.
