Pottstown, PA (PRWEB) September 24, 2010
Back in January of this year, the island nation of Haiti was struck by a catastrophic 7.0 magnitude earthquake. The capital city of Port Au Prince sustained significant damages and over 200,000 people were killed as a result of the quake. Hundreds of thousands more were injured sustaining bone fractures, amputations and large soft tissue injuries. Dr. Mark Peters, a plastic and reconstructive surgeon from Houma, LA, brought a team of medical professionals to Port Au Prince five weeks after the quake to assist with the surgical care of those Haitians injured in the quake.
The team brought over $15,000 in medical supplies. One of the supplies, which became a hit with the patients, was the Performance Food Center’s Bio-Whey Protein Supplement. Dr. Peters said this was very important, as it appeared that a majority of the injured were malnourished. “We would just mix up a few gallons each day" Dr. Peters mentioned, "the patients loved it.” He stated, "many of the wounds that had occurred five weeks prior had not yet healed. Without adequate protein intake, the wounds they had incurred and the reconstructive surgeries I performed would have never healed.”
Dr. Peters found Performance Food Center’s Bio-Whey Protein at his gym’s Juice Bar- the Workout Company 3 in Houma, Louisiana. Over the past year, Peters purchased a protein shake after each of his workouts. He was impressed with the taste and quality of the protein. So much so, that when he planned his trip to Haiti, he knew of only one product he wanted to take to help to provide protein to the healing patients- PFC Bio-Whey Protein. He requested a donation be made to the cause and PFC’s Juice Bar consultant, Lindsay Kehl, responded quickly, sending Peters with a supply of protein.
Dan Young, Owner and President of Performance Food Centers mentions, “PFC is honored to play a small role in the healing process of the people of Haiti." He continues, " We are all emotionally shaken by what Haiti has gone through and are thankful for Dr. Peters to give of himself to do God’s work. If our protein can be an instrument to aid in Dr. Peter’s work, we are all truly indebted to him. We are thankful that Dr. Peters took over our protein and that the protein was able to help heal the patients after their surgeries.” Young concludes, “ Our goal is to help people heal through natural whole-food products and we are so happy that our product is able to do this- especially in a great time of need.”
