THE STORY:

Stephanie Kang wrote -

Community Health Council is dedicated to engaging with local leaders who are committed to improving their community through health. We have been partnering with Nadege Belizaire & Kobel Dubique, both physicians who received a Masters in Global Health Delivery from Harvard Medical School, to conduct mobile clinics and public health research in order to provide care to a community without access to clean water and electricity.

Orangers is located in the mountainsides of Leogane, the epicenter of the 2010 earthquake. Before our first mobile clinic in August 2014, the community of Orangers had never received medical care in their area. Since then, we have hosted several mobile clinics and gathered significant data to assess and treat the prevalence of non-communicable diseases in the community. We have also grown to provide laboratory testing (without electricity!), women's health clinics, and dentistry. On our first clinic day, we treated over 350 patients in 5 hours. We have now grown our capacity to see well over 1,000 patients in just 2 days.

Community Health Council plans to host another mobile clinic in June 2016. Please consider donating to support our clinic. While we bring a small team of volunteers, we spend less than 5% on personal accommodations and food (because we sleep in a tent!!). Therefore 95% all goes directly to utilizing community health workers, physicians, and supplies for our mobile clinic. The total cost of a clinic is $5/patient. Although our fundraising goal is only $5000, we would like to raise even more! Please consider helping Nadege Belizaire (http://bit.ly/238gklo) and Kobel Dubique (http://bit.ly/238gj0D) in their mission to bringing healthcare to Orangers, Haiti!
