You may remember this story from September 28 when we posted about the baby in respiratory distress. Well, his mom brought him back to visit and show just how life-altering having a team there has been.
Our team in Haiti is making a difference thanks to the help of the dedicated medical professionals and the family and friends that support them.
EMI is able to provide medications to help the many people who visit the clinic for life-saving or life-changing treatments. Some of the medications are donated but many have to be purchased prior to our arrival. This wouldn’t be possible without the help of our supporters here at home.
The team spent some time visiting the local communities as some were unable to make the journey to the clinic.
The Haitian people are beautiful, strong, resilient and thankful. They work hard for what they can but, in many cases, circumstances are working against them. They don’t want to need help but the reality is, they do sometimes. It is a life-altering experience for those on our team to be able to do whatever they can to help.
If you would like to be a part of this life changing experience, you can fill out the form on the Volunteer page indicating your interest.
We are so grateful for your generous financial support as well. We ALL are making a difference.
Haiti’s healthcare system has been in crisis for many years. While some improvements were realized after the earthquake in January 2010,
many things have not changed. The ability to go see a doctor or visit the hospital in an emergency is something many of us take for granted. This is why Everyday Miracles International is in Haiti right now with an amazing team of medical professionals. These people are giving of their time, resources and finances to do what they can to make a difference in as many lives as they can.
One of those lives is this little one. This baby was seen by our team visiting the clinic in September. We were able to provide a referral for life altering surgery to correct a cleft palate that is not just a cosmetic fix
but one that allows this baby to eat and drink properly, making a difference in his health through proper nutrition. The family came back to visit and say thank you. The smiles Dr. Cheryl got from this precious one was the best thank you.
On another day, a very ill man fell unconscious while waiting to get into the clinic to be seen. The team quickly stabilized him, accessed him and arranged for an ambulance to transport him to hospital.
For all these reasons and many more, EMI exists. Each team that travels, comes back knowing they have done what they could to make a difference in someone’s life. If you would like to be a part of making the next team successful in making a difference, please donate now.
