My Eye Clinic in Haiti

Newsletter_05

In March 2012, I was part of the medical mission with the vision team in Haiti. Since I have never been to Haiti, I jumped to the oppor-tunity to help people there. We traveled to a rural community named Marbial, outside of Jacmel, a city located south-east of Port-au-Prince, Haiti. I was taken by the beautiful mountain views, rivers and the locals using the water to bathe, wash things, and clean their clothes. It was sad to learn that the water was not clean and full of parasites.

We continued the journey to our destination. I thought I was emotionally prepared to cope with everything such as the hot weather, the long lines/hours for clinical visits, but it was hard and I could not hold back my tears just seeing other human being living in such poor condi-tions without any hope.

Trip to Petite Rivière

Last December we went on a mission trip to Haiti. We visited our school in Marbial and the orphanage located at Petite Rivière. We have been involved in helping children and people living in Haiti since 2006 and we praise God that we were able to get away during Christmas season and spent that time with the kids to show them the love of Christ.

For the first time in their lives, these children, living in the mountains of this rural community were able to celebrate Christmas like us. We prepared lot of food not only for the kids but also for their parents. We distributed many gifts to all of them, we shared Christmas stories and watched a movie about God’s love for all mankind.
