Health care in Haiti is almost non-existent. A private room in a clinic or a flight abroad for a medical procedure are luxuries beyond most Haitians’ wildest dreams. Simple medical conditions such as anemia, diabetes, or even an infected cut, can lead to death. This is why some families, desperate to see their loved ones receive care, turn to the local witch doctor for treatment.
Mercy International not only desires to care for the sick as Jesus instructs in Matthew 25, but also share what He teaches in Mark 2 – that full healing comes through faith in God alone. Each week, Haitians seeking medical care gather outside the clinic in the village of Merci de Dieu. This clinic is in need of funding throughout the year for medical supplies, a doctor, and nurses. From time to time, there are also those with serious medical ailments who need a medical sponsorship, for care that cannot be provided in the village. What a great opportunity we have, as we care for the sick, to also point patients to the Great Physician, our heart healer (Matthew 13:15).
Your donation will go to Mercy International’s medical fund. It will be used to support the operation of the village clinic and to provide aid when the need arises for life saving or life transforming medical care.
