Description:

Providing medical care to some of the most remote areas and underserved people of Haiti

We work to provide physical healing to both individuals and communities remote regions through emergency relief, research, medical services not locally available, and community health development. Local pastors, nurses or community leaders who find an area of need contact us and invite us to work in a region. We work by first surveying a community and identifying the most appropriate medical response. Some areas have may have sustained a disaster and need immediate disaster aid, some have no local medical resources and need a medical or surgical response, others may have a chronic medical issue better dealt with through community health through evangelism. Still others have rare and specific medical conditions best treated through research and specific treatment, such as our experience with goiters and iodine deficiency. Through all we do the Gospel of Christ is presented as it is what brings about true lasting change.

Remote Medical Ministry

Traveling to three main remote, mountainous areas within Haiti, we provide the only health care in the immediate region. This program is an ongoing program to connect remote villages that have never received care to compassionate heath care and the love of Christ. Often in the remote areas of Haiti, access to medical care is nonexistent. If that is the case we step in and provide care.
