We have been very blessed at Friends for Health in Haiti by all the individuals, churches and organizations that have chosen to work with us in our medical ministry in Haiti.  Visitors bring us encouragement as well as expertise and we value the contributions of everyone who has come to Haiti to experience our work and get a glimpse of our ministry.

One of our newer partnerships is with the Medical College of Wisconsin.  I...

Friends for Health in Haiti wishes all of our readers a very Happy New Year! We trust you all had a blessed holiday season and that you are now ready to see what challenges this new year has to bring.

In our work in Haiti, we are always interested in expanding our services and programs, both in our outpatient clinic and in the surrounding communities, as long as those services are truly needed by the population we serve. I...

With its high heat and humidity, Haiti is not an ideal place to visit during the summer months.  But, for the sake of our spiritual ministry, a hardy intergenerational group from Eastbrook Church in Milwaukee and Town North Presbyterian Church (PCA) in Richardson, TX sacrificed their comfort for a week of work with us and some of the local churches near our clinic.  The Eastbrook Church team consisted of Geri Koterman, te...

We have been blessed to have visits several times each year from our friends from the Avera Health system in South Dakota. This group of hospitals and clinics has a tremendous commitment to mission work in the world and we are blessed that they have chosen to partner with Friends for Health in Haiti as a global mission outreach. They brought a group of 11 to Jérémie two weeks ago and most of them were return visitors. Six...

Cherlie and I spent a few weeks in April in the US, visiting with churches and family in the NY/NJ area and attending an annual fund-raising banquet and board meeting in Milwaukee.  We visited lots of people and churches, did multiple presentations and enjoyed the comforts of life in the US!  The banquet was very successful and we are grateful for the generosity of all who attended and contributed to our ministry in Haiti...

For several years we have been blessed to be an overseas clinical site for nursing students at Johns Hopkins School of Nursing taking their Public Health Nursing course as undergraduate BSN students. Twice each year we have had a group of 9 students and one faculty member come down to Haiti to work with us in our Water and Sanitation Program as well as assist with patient consultations in our outpatient clinic in Gatineau...

In our blogs, we like to highlight the visitors and groups that come to work with us in Haiti.  They are an important part of our ministry here, since they help us to offer additional services to our patients and the communities around the clinic.  We are appreciative of the supplies and medications that they bring to us as well, since it helps to reduce our cost of operations here at the clinic.  Kudos to our visitors!...

The two week visit from Bob and Audrey Chase and Don Richmond from Elmbrook Church in Wisconsin came to an end this weekend with almost everything completed on the cabinetry for the clinic.  The team worked extremely hard, taking only one day off, and made thirteen round trips to the clinic site up in the mountains.  Most of the mornings were sunny, but there were frequent afternoon rains, so many of the trips down the mo...

This past week, we have had the privilege of hosting Bob and Audrey Chase and Don Richmond from Elmbrook Church in Wisconsin.  Bob is an expert cabinetmaker who pre-fabricated cabinets for our clinic in his shop in New Berlin, WI last fall.  We shipped them down here in a shipping container being sent to Haiti by Food For The Poor, thanks to the intervention of Karl Ralian of Waukesha, WI.  The shipping container was dela...

There have been quite a few blogs written lately by Engineer Nick Matthews.  I thought I would write now about some of the recent activities of our clinic in Gatineau.

 

We have been blessed by having some medical personnel visit with each team of construction workers this winter.  Some of them were practicing clinicians, including 5 physicians, some were nurses, others were paramedical personnel and some had no medical bac...
