NCBM Volunteer teams are serving in Haiti constructing permanent homes and providing medical care in out-patient clinics. Our first team arrived on January 15 by flying first to Santo Domingo, then taking a bus into Haiti. They began their work on Jan. 15, 2010 by assisting a burn clinic. They were able to support the hospital staff of Petionville Community Hospital, a 50 bed hospital seeing approximately 250 patients each day. Feeding volunteers assisted in preparing and serving approximately 20,000 meals at Petionville Community Hospital.
As of today, over 900 volunteers have served in Haiti since the earthquake. Volunteers and Haitian staff have completed 803 temporary shelters, 15 permanent homes, and have had over 91,000 patient visits. Eleven hundred + have accepted Christ!
The medical teams are treating a number of ailments and also address the Cholera issue by educating patients on good hygiene and effective ways to prevent the disease. In addition, clinic volunteers are distributing soap to improve hygiene. Any patient presenting Cholera at the clinic is referred to one of the Cholera Treatment Units.
Our initial effort of construction will probably come to an end the last of October, 2011. However, we are developing a process for sending medical teams past the October date. Please pray for it to come to fruition.
Please pray for the teams as they provide assistance for the medical and other needs.
Scott and Janet Daughtry arrived in Haiti on February 2, 2011 and have served several months as the long term coordinators. In addition, Jerry and Betty Oliver, Curtis and Joyce Thrift, and Bobby and Wanda Temple will rotate in and out of Haiti to provide leadership and coordination.
Thank you for Praying, Giving and Going.
We are keeping a list of potential Haiti volunteers.
