The team is seeing 145 patients a day

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.

Stories and pictures are coming in as each of the team members has a chance to process everything they experienced last week. It was a whirlwind of new sights and smells, beautiful children and thankful people. A trip like this is an experience that will change you and affect you in ways you never imagined. Please contact us if you would like to experience what it is like to serve others on one of our upcoming trips.
