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.
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, Dentists, Optometrists, 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).
You will also have the opportunity to attend a Haitian worship service, visit a local Haitian community, learn about the culture, and engage in other activities and ministries of HCM.
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!
