Cranbrook Community - November 2010 | Hungry For Life

November 2010: ,

A team of medical staff traveled to Grand Goave, Haiti alongside Team Leader Jackie Edinborough to work alongside our partners at Haiti ARISE Ministries. The team of 13, under the direction of Dr. Bob Cutler, hosted eight days of medical clinics. The clinics saw a total of 900 people, with some patients needing follow up and even surgical care. The team consisted of a couple doctors and nurses and some lay people that lent a hand in coordinating the daily tasks of such a large-scale clinic. The team also completed a number of construction projects for Haiti ARISE, including working on the future Medical Clinic.

Additional items accomplished: 
  • 900 men, women, boys and girls seen and treated by the medical team
  • 1 boy sent for surgery after being diagnosed with an abscessed groin
  • 1 patient identified as having tuberculosis and sent to a nearby city for treatment
  • Multiple people receiving one on one counselling by team psychologist
  • 2 rooms (of 4 total) of the Medical Clinic were completed by the construction team
  • Many other smaller construction projects were completed (ie. Building shelves)
  • 100 kids attending bible skit performed by the team
