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.

AWESOME HAITI NEWS! In the last 3 weeks, we were able to bring mobile clinics to the villages of Turpin, Monaville, Cabaret, Titanyen, & Leveque!! We saw 1,500 patients and witnessed 30 people come to know Jesus! PRAISE THE LORD FOR ALL HE'S DOING!!
Today we set up a Mobile Clinic under some beautiful trees in Monaville. Approximately 160 patients were seen and 10 people came to Christ! Praise Jesus!!
Take a look at this photo of the triage tables at the Mobile Clinic that was set up in Turpin. We had 18 North American team members here this week! They were able to see around 115 patients yesterday, all in about 5 hours!!
Harvest Christian Fellowship from Riverside, CA is going to be doing a mobile clinic this week in Turpin!! We are so thankful for all of the medication they brought with them to MOH!
We are always so blessed to have all our medical mission volunteers come and serve the Haitian people! This week, visiting cardiologist Dr. Stan is donating his time and skills to help diagnose heart issues in Haiti!
Our medical and prosthetics team had the privilege to visit and treat an orphanage on the remote island of La Gonave over the weekend!
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!! You have provided countless opportunities for Haitians to witness the love and healing work of our Great Physician! We are forever in debt to your sacrifices! Thank you!
We had over 900 patients this past week at our Mobile Clinics! Praise God for our faithful Haitian staff who worked seamlessly with our medical teams!
We just had our first mobile clinic at Pastor Kelly's church in Titanyen, Haiti! We were able to minister to over 900 people through mobile medical outreach this past week, with 8 recorded salvations, many more spiritually encouraged, and all prayed for! Please continue to pray with us as we do two days of mobile clinic outreach at the North Campus for the Bercy residents this Monday and Tuesday!
Our translators are being equipped and trained in first aid and medical terminology so they can better serve in mobile clinics!
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!
We are so grateful to have Dr Kreg Boynton, DDS at Mission of Hope this week. Dr Kreg and his dental assistant, Tabitha, spent their week volunteering in our dental lab.
