The United Brethren Church in Canada is organizing a medical mission team to go to Haiti January 23 – February 3, 2009. A number of experienced volunteers have already signed on, but they have openings for additional volunteers.
They will conduct 4-6 clinics in “triage” style. The most common problems relate to stomach and head maladies. Based on the doctor’s findings, appropriate medicine is dispensed as available, or treatment is administered. A month’s supply of vitamins is also provided. After each patient is seen, a Haitian pastor or church leader prays with them before they leave.
If you’re interested in participating on this team, please contact Joan Sider at email@example.com.
