Each year a number of events are held to raise funds for Hope House Haiti. This page gives
In 2017 all school children had their eyes tested, were weighed, measured and had their growth plotted on their medical records. 40 children were identified as malnourished and a breakfast club for these children was started, whilst 10 children were identified with very poor eyesight and provided glasses. A serious eye condition was also diagnosed and successfully treated preventing blindness. As a volunteer on this trip stated “it was very rewarding to see the positive changes that have been made following on from the previous clinics. One example of this was a young boy for whom I was plotting a growth chart. In 2016, he was underweight and his family was identified to Yvrose as people who would benefit from additional food supplies. This year his weight is now proportional to his height; one example of the success achieved.”
In 2018, the team provided health screening for 954 children as well as the staff at Hope Christian Academy. All of the children, many of whom complained of stomach pains, received worming treatment and 41% of the children were diagnosed with a medical condition and given additional prescriptions. 85 children were identified as undernourished and invited to the Breakfast Club to help them in their growth.
We couldn’t have completed all this Medical work without hardworking volunteers who have contributed in so many different ways and with such a passion and servant heart. Plus, we want to acknowledge the invaluable contribution of LATA (who have funded translators vital for doing the clinics as well as a Haitian Doctor), and the Cuckfield and Lindfield Rotary Club (England) who have helped us with the purchase of medicines.
And finally, we have seen the Master Physician at work when no medicine could cure. Jesus heals.
- Isaac (15) was born deaf in one ear. He came to school clinic and immediately after he was prayed for he could hear!
- Merlande (7) was mute. After being prayed for in clinic her first words were “Thank you Jesus”. She continues to speak freely and fluently.
Other Team Trips
In addition to the annual medical missions, other teams have also visited Haiti.
- In February 2015, a team of Architects visited to help plan the expansion of the school and creation of a farm.
