Mission:

Del Corazon de Jesucristo, El Catey, Dominican Republic

We are traveling to the island of Hispaniola and hope you will join us! We will be joining Dr. Steve and Julie Dorsey, Directors of Del Corazon de JesuCristo in the country of the Dominican Republic.

Our primary focus is serving alongside Dr. Leslie, who is a Dominican physician on staff with Del Corazon, to provide medical/spiritual care through multiple mobile medical clinics to people living in remote communities who do not have access to nearby healthcare or the funds to purchase much needed medications.

Mobile medical clinics help to open doors for national Evangelists who are called to reach people for Christ in a specific community. Illnesses are treated by the medications that are dispensed by our team, but the long-lasting treatment for all of life’s challenges lies in knowing Jesus. Mobile medical camps enhance the ministry of local Evangelists and help draw attention to the Great Physician and His healing.

We are seeking Physicians, Nurses, Pharmacists, NPs, PAs, Physical Therapists, and other medical professionals who are seeking an opportunity to be used according to their skills and abilities on this trip. We are also in need of non-medical trip participants who will be taught how to serve in the following areas:

Triage (taking blood pressures, temps, and blood sugars. They will also determine the chief complaint of the patient).

Health Education Station (teach a simple health education lesson along with sharing a brief devotion with a group of 10 – 15 patients at a time).

Pharmacy Station (prepare prescribed medications to be dispensed to the patient).

Interpreters will be an integral part of our team!

The team will also have an opportunity to engage in other Del Corazon ministries while on this trip.

Accommodations are on the mission compound with comfortable dorm-style sleeping, showers, and flush toilets. Meals are prepared by Julie Dorsey and are so delicious, you won’t want to leave!

Haiti

October 19 – 27, 2018

Host Mission:  Haitian Christian Mission

Learn more about HCM at www.haitianchristianmission.org

Estimated Cost: $2195

You are invited to join us on our upcoming trip to Haiti, the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. As you can imagine, in a country like Haiti, there is much need. In the area of healthcare, many needs go unmet due to lack of money to purchase needed medications, non-existent healthcare facilities in local communities, and lack of education on disease prevention. FAME will be serving in ministry with Haitian Christian Mission (HCM), directed by Edwens Prophete in Fond-Parisien, Haiti.

Our primary focus on our upcoming trip to Haiti is to serve alongside our Haitian brothers and sisters who are medical professionals in providing medical/spiritual care through multiple mobile medical clinics to people living in remote communities who have little to no access to healthcare.

Accommodations are on the HCM campus with comfortable beds, showers, and flush toilets. Each day you will enjoy a breathtaking view of the mountains and Lake Azuei. Meals are prepared by the Haitian staff of HCM and are absolutely delicious!

Solar Panels and Battery Power Supply

Location:  Gressier, Haiti

Need:  This Eye Clinic meets Vision medical needs which, untreated, can lead to blindness.  They are adding an eye surgery suite and eye glass manufacturing lab. The clinic can only be open when electricity is available, which is sporadic at best.  The clinic shares a Diesel Generator with multiple other ministries and the operating costs are high and dependent on other sources.  Haiti is becoming known as ideal solar power location.

Funding Goal:  $10,000
