Mission of Hope Haiti Updates
New Sight at the Eye Clinic
There was an 80 year old Haitian woman who was very nearsighted. Without her glasses, she was legally blind. Through our mobile vision clinic, she was fitted with a pair of glasses. As she stepped outside, she smiled from ear to ear and the turned back around to give the medical team a huge hug. We exist for stories like this.
Other Medical updates:
Last October our medical team visited the rural village of Palto. As always, there were many sick in great need of care, but babies are extremely difficult for our team to see hurting. This precious girl, Rosina, was only 6 months old. She was not eating, severely malnourished, and very lethargic. Rosina was most likely only days away from dying. Our team gave her mother formula and the village champion helped her get to the hospital that same day and get treatment. The Haitian nurse, Miss Severe, coordinated with the village champion to get formula to the mother every week. Two weeks ago, when our team was back in Palto, Rosina looked like a different baby. You can see the transformation! God is using the skills and compassion of our medical team to meet the physical and spiritual needs of people all across the beautiful country of Haiti!

We are very grateful for the 10 member medical team that came with the St. Johns youth group this week. The medical team consists of a MD, several RNs & EMTs, a paramedic, and a PT. They have taught training courses for two days which included First Aid, CPR, and an Advanced Life Support class for the clinic medical professionals at MOH! In total, 67 persons were trained at our First Aid and CPR classes!!! The group also performed an orphanage medical outreach with us the day after they arrived and did a mobile medical outreach to the Minoterie village yesterday. Three team members stayed back at the mission to educate our Village of Hope kids on proper health decisions. This group, lead by Dr. Bryan Delage, also donated a laptop, projector, adult and infant mannikins, AHA CPR books, and First Aid manuals so that we can keep training in Haiti. They've been busy and extremely helpful! Join MOH as we recognize all their efforts and show our gratitude for all their hard work!
This is Lovely, she is two years old and arrived at the Clinic on Friday. She was suffering from Cholera and Severe Acute Malnutrition. We are blessed to have an ambulance that got her to a Cholera Treatment Center just in time!
Gaby had a successful gallbladder surgery last Saturday and is currently in recovery. His gallstones were the size and color of red and black cherries! As many already know, the fact that Gaby actually had surgery was a giant miracle due to the selfless efforts of a newly met surgeon Dr. Mark from the US helping to arrange it after many delays!
Gaby, a long-time clinic patient with Sickle Cell Anemia, was in the hospital needing blood transfusions and the Haitian Red Cross was out of blood. We had nine courageous staff members, interns, and even some team members step up and give blood to Gaby!
We are so grateful to ALL the nurses who have served with Mission of Hope over the years and the ones that continue to serve with us on a weekly basis!!

This past week Mission of Hope sent a team to the mountains for a mobile clinic. After two days in Turpin and two days in Monaville, the week was a success! Each patient was able to see a doctor, receive medication (if needed) and then spend a few moments with our prayer team. Over the course of the four days, 35 people received Christ for the very first time!! This is true Life Transformation...both physical AND spiritual!
