This team will be serving the south west areas around Les Cayes and Jeremie, Haiti, which suffered so much devastation from Hurricane Matthew. 80% of the homes were damaged or destroyed, up to 100% of crops destroyed in areas, and nearly 50% of the livestock killed. The team will fly out of Atlanta and into Port au Prince on Saturday, May 20th and travel the approx. three hours to Les Cayes. Accommodations will be in the homes of several host families. In the clinics doctors and other medical professionals will see patients, nurses will assist with triage and work in the pharmacy, and non-medical members will offer eyeglasses, assist with the pharmacy, and do other work as needed. Physicians, nurses, pharmacists, dentists, and non-medical helpers are needed. The team will fly back to the United States on Sunday, May 28, 2017
Daily devotions will be done by the team and prayer teams will be available in the clinics to pray for patients. Prayerfully consider joining this team that will work hard to help the Haitian people who have suffered so much, especially within the past year. Please be prepared for difficult conditions and be willing to be flexible as the need arises. This will be a life changing experience for each team member.
