Haiti Bible Mission hosted two medical teams this fall. In Haiti, access to quality medical care is lacking and the cost is often unattainable by struggling families. These teams were huge blessings by providing free medical care to so many people who might otherwise go without the treatment they needed. The teams brought valuable knowledge, skills and resources and were able to see hundreds of patients each day they were here.
The teams worked alongside our HBM staff and emerging leaders to greatly impact the community. During their time in Jeremie, the teams held a mobile clinic in a different zone each day. One day they set up clinic in the HBM church downtown, the next day they set up in a local school.
We were able to take the teams to a rural area called Te Wouj to assess and treat the students and families in the Te Wouj program. Visiting Te Wouj allows the teams to see the lack of access rural areas have to medical care and the huge need that is there. Our HBM staff was also blessed because the teams did wellness check-ups on each staff member and held a first aid training day to teach basic knowledge such as CPR, wound care and signs of emergency medical problems.
The mobile medical clinics met physical needs and allowed every person who came an opportunity to hear the gospel. Each patient was prayed for before leaving the clinic. We are so grateful for mission teams who bring their expertise to Haiti to serve our community.
