in Haiti, there is one doctor for every 4000 people....
and most Haitians would not be able to pay for medical treatment even if they could find someone willing to see them. At least twice a year, Mt. Carmel's Just Go Haiti teams bring that care to the Jeremie and Chateau areas of Haiti. Doctors, Nurses, Nurse Practitioners, Pharmacists, Medical Techs and lay people come together to provide clinics for thousands of people desperate for the most basic medical care and make a difference in the lives of Haitians, showing the love of Jesus in a most tangible and meaningful way.
MEDICAL CARE FOR THE EMMANUEL CHILDREN
Our medical teams keep a close eye on the Emmanuel children, providing vaccinations, medical care, basic dental care, and continued monitoring of their growth and general health. Dr. Jeff Fosnes and Nurse Practitioner Donna Hall are our Medical Directors and oversee the health of the Emmanuel children and all of our medical teams.
Medical Clinics are set up anywhere, whether in a church, a school or just tents and tarps. Hundreds of people are seen each day and treated for everything from malnutrition to high blood pressure to cholera. Medical professionals from all over the country come together as a team and make an incredible difference in the Jeremie community.
The first ever Just Go Haiti Dental team will leave for Haiti July 20. The team will have a free clinic for the Chateau community and treat the Emmanuel children's teeth and provide preventative oral care - the first the children will have ever received.
