We have returned from a trip to Manitoba meeting with supporters from Selkirk, Steinback, Winkler, Morden and area... I now leave for Slave Lake, Ab. for meetings the 17, 18, & 19th...
I spoke to the teachers that arrived in Haiti Tuesday from Medicine Hat.. they had a wonderful trip... stay posted for updates...
Regarding our specific work in Jacmel, we will be establishing a medical clinic in Chabin located just 15 minutes West of the city.
The clinic will provide basic outpatient services. Any urgent cases will be referred to the government Hospital in Jacmel. There will be full time Haitian staff: physician, nurse, registration clerk and pharmacy technician. Volunteer teams will include four triage stations, two primary care providers , pharmacist/nurse pharmacist and up to four general support staff. Our goal is to supplement the training of the local staff so they can run the clinic independently in the future.
Since the earthquake, we have been involved with the storage and distribution of medical supplies in Jacmel. Currently, the supplies at the depot are limited but we expect a new shipment soon from Direct Relief International. The Aid Matrix Foundation will provide training to workers in inventory supply and management. Calvary Chapel will be constructing a new depot in August with climate control. We are looking for a partner for funding for this essential project to continue.
