The Need For

Health Care In Haiti

What We're Doing Now

The Clinic of Hope currently consists of a fully operational outpatient clinic, dental clinic, vision clinic, prosthetics lab, mobile clinic, and a community health program. Our desire is to minister through patient education and the relief of suffering to as many patients as possible. Our mission is to fight the health risks Haitians face by serving through local churches and schools with on-going mobile clinics and community health initiatives, as we leverage these services to expand our Gospel impact in these communities.

What We are Doing to Improve Health Care in Haiti

Clinic of Hope

What We're Doing Now:

At the Clinic of Hope on our Main Campus, we typically treat around 60 people each day. Daily, our medical team of Haitian doctors, pharmacists, lab techs, and nurses serve the people of Haiti with acute and chronic needs. The clinic is equipped with a pharmacy, lab, urgent care center, and wound care. The clinic also has an ambulance as needed for more urgent and critical patient needs.

The Clinic also provides programs for Diabetes and Prenatal/Breastfeeding/Infant care. These programs include classes that are led by the clinic nurses who take the time to thoroughly educate these patients and provide needed medications and materials to the participants.

The Need

Funds to be able to continue patient programs and education.

Community Health Initiative (CHI)

What We’re Doing Now:

The goal of the community health program is to expand patient education and enable communities to live healthier, fuller lives. This initiative includes partnering with the Network of Hope and HaitiOne to train community health partners, increase sanitation standards, and reach communities through medical mobile clinics.

The Need

Funds to be able to continue to these initiatives and trainings so that communities and lives are transformed by nutrition, sanitation, medication, and education.

Hope Smiles Dental Center at Mission of Hope

What We're Doing Now:

Mission of Hope works in partnership with Hope Smiles to provide a multi-faceted dental care program in Haiti. Hope Smiles specializes in delivering an excellent sustainable model of dentistry led by indigenous dental professionals that is unlike any other program in the world. Our Dentist sees patients in the dental clinic through the week, and Hope Smiles also leads mobile dental clinics numerous times throughout the year so patients from various villages have access to quality dental care as well.

Vision Clinic

What We’re Doing Now:

The Vision Clinic includes a fully functional optical lab with auto-refractors, pteropter, frames, and an edger that allows us to cut patient lenses. Instead of relying on only donated lenses, patients can now pick out their frames and have lenses cut to match their needed prescription. There is a great need for high quality vision care in Haiti and we’re committed to continue serving these patients with excellence.

The Need:

Ophthalmologists, Optometrists, and Opticians are invited to serve with our Haitian staff in the clinic.

Prosthetics Lab

What We're Doing Now:

From its inception just after the earthquake, Prosthetics of Hope has been making hundreds of lower limbs for both adults and children and giving Hope to those who are in need. Many Haitians still need the healing hands of a prosthesis, and MOH is committed to providing and maintaining care for these individuals.

The Need:

Prosthetic volunteers, PT and OT volunteers, and funding for prosthetic supplies.

Mobile Clinics

What We're Doing Now:

Each week, a team of North American providers, RNs/LVNs/CNAs, pharmacists, and support staff join with our Haitian mobile clinic doctor and translators to set up a clinic in villages all around Haiti. Currently we serve 20 villages, with more being added. Some are an hour and half drive up the mountain and some are five minutes from the clinic. During mobile clinics we offer medical consultation and medications, then each patient has an opportunity to hear the gospel. We want everyone that we see to feel and know the love of Jesus. We are able to see anywhere from 80-200 patients at each clinic, depending on the team size, so hundreds of patients are reached each month through mobile clinic alone.

The Need:

Medical personnel and support staff to come serve on mobile clinics, offering medical care and the love of Jesus to all we see. Also, funding to help with medications and supplies that are given out on mobile clinics.

Medical Outreach Program (MOPs)

What We're Doing Now:

The Medical Outreach Program (MOPs) allows us to form long term care and relationships with patients and their families. Every patient has an individualized care plan created together with the patient and/or family, the Haitian medical team, and our North American medical staff.

The Need:

Funds to continue to provide thorough and continued care to these patients and their families. Get involved with the Medical Outreach Program.
