The lack of quality medical care in Haiti is no secret. Agencies such as the World Heath Organization, USAID, and Doctor’s Without Borders all agree that even before the 2010 earthquake the healthcare system in Haiti was lacking. The inadequacies were compounded in the aftermath of the earthquake. The Haitian people rely heavily on non-governmental and charitable organizations to supplement the poor quality government provided healthcare.
We have attempted to address this need by hosting professional medical teams who conduct mobile clinics throughout the country. The physicians and nurses who help us are limited in what they can treat because follow-up care is limited. It has been a goal of ours to build a medical clinic which would be consistently staffed and
equipped to more adequately address the health needs of so many.
In February 2017, we realized the first phase of that goal. Situated at the top of a hill overlooking the Caribbean Sea, sits a place of physical healing. The desire to provide quality care and consistent follow up to the hundreds of patients seen in our mobile clinics sparked this dream. Now the hard work of keeping the clinic maintained, staffed and stocked with necessary supplies begins.
