Haiti

The medical clinic in Croix-des-Bouquets, near the capital of Haiti, has been closed for over 3 years. In this area of the country alone, there are 70,000 people with underserved medical needs. These people need our help! We need to reopen this clinic!

Help us re-open this clinic!

Several years ago, a Haitian NGO purchased one acre of land outside of Haiti’s capital, Port Au Prince. While the organization was able to build a medical clinic on this land, unfortunately, due to a lack of finances, the clinic was closed and has not been operational for over three years.

Last year, a team from EMI travelled to Haiti to visit the clinic.  It ultimately became our goal to re-open the clinic and return medical service to the thousands of people in this area.
