Greetings and Thanks for your Support.
On October 25-28, 2018, Haiti 2018 Rural Medical Clinic Conference and Mobile
Clinic #1, at Morne Barbeau, Haiti, will open with Doctors from Haiti, Cuba, and
the USA. In November our permanent Medical Mission continues.
We have had a school nurse, since January 2017.
Our Medical Clinic construction is coming near an end, and now we are
furnishing and equipping the facility. 2018 has been an amazing year, starting
with foundations, in February and block walls, in March. In June, the concrete
roof was poured, with a lot of steel rebar. In August and September, finish
concrete work, windows, plumbing, electricity, and ceramic floors were
All of our buildings have consideration, for possible earthquakes (seismic) and
hurricanes (cyclonic). The Medical Clinic will have a small pharmacy, laboratory,
surgical area, and area with beds, for those to sick, to sit in the waiting room.
We are securing medical staff, with salaries starting in November. Doctors and
nurses are paid very moderately, compared to the other countries. We will have
pharmacy supply expenses, that will continue monthly as well.
21st century medicine is coming to a village, that still uses a lot of traditional medicine.
The closest hospital is in Leogane. Transportation is also a problem, but we now
have a motorcycle (moto) and soon, a used automobile. No one in the area, has
a car and very few have a moto. Most people walk or use public transportation.
We have introduced the first ever, electricity and plumbing to the area. The
school will benefit from all of these upgrades as well. We now have over 200
students, in our 4rth year educating children, grades Kindergarten to 5th Grade.
Thanks again for allowing us to share with the people of Haiti, struggling in this
impoverished area. Thanks for helping us make a difference in children’s lives,
this last 6 years and 4 months. May God Bless You, as we continue.
