APRIL 2019

One of the most common disease encountered at the Haiti Clinic is infection. Recently a patient came to the Clinic and was diagnosed with a lung infection. Quickly, the staff transferred this patient to a specialized center to treat this type of infection. The doctors continue to follow up insuring the patient is continuing with treatment.                                                    

 

The typical approach to healthcare is to only seek a doctor if you do not feel well. But in this case the doctors tested everyone in the house hold for the same infection. Fortunately, they found one person with the same infection even though they were feeling well. This person began treatment. I am so proud of our Clinic staff. They are proactive in their care.

The current location is suitable for now, but it is very small. As we look forward to the near future, we are seeing the need for expansion. Dr. Mirhioll has access to a building in a nearby community. This location is in a residential area with many potential clients nearby. The vision for the future is to see this remodeled and repaired. It will be a great place for several Haitian doctors to practice. It will also be a larger place to continue sonogram training for Haitian doctors learning how to perform and read sonograms. 

We are in need of financial support for the Clinic. Please take a moment and give generously to keep this level of health care alive in Haiti.

By supporting a student in school, you can make this a reality for a mom and dad. This month we are beginning to take pledges to support school children. Frankly, there is no better way to help Haiti than to invest in the education of kids. Support for each child is $360 for the year. You can pay in full or $30 a month for each student. Please fill out a request to sponsor before August 1st. You can email the following information to jim@vineministry.org if you like:
