Both of our teams made it back from Haiti safely and with much accomplished! Thanks to all who supported our team members through prayers, financial giving, and other donations of medical supplies.
Let’s first discuss our medical mission. Before the trip, we packed multiple suitcases of donated medication and equipment, which was hand carried into Cap Haitien (see the photo for just a small sample). The team also purchased hard-to-get medication in-country to stock the clinics Espwa supports.
The team of 3 medical professionals and one photographer spent their days with Dr. Eugene Maklin, our in-country Medical Director. The team visited St. Anthony’s Medical Clinic for 3 days and Blue Hills for 2 days, seeing over 100 patients per day!
Our second team from Northgate Church (Pittsburgh, PA) visited St. Anthony’s clinic, the Agrolide farming expansion project, the Plane-du-Nord hospital project, Haitian Creole Tour, and helped tutor at EBAC Christian Academy. The team also had dinner Q&A times with one of our Peace & Joy families, a group of local pastors, in-country missionaries, and a Haitian organization that provides micro-loans. It was a great exposure trip of multiple Espwa projects and many individuals in our network.
Glad to see our friends in-country and continue building relationships. Also glad to be home safely with renewed energy about our work in Haiti.
