Haitian Doctor Dreams For His Country
Organized by: Patrick Nelson
Surviving through the struggles and hardships of living in Haiti can be overwhelming. However, there are some who are able to rise above and make a stand for others who cannot stand for themselves. Dr. Andrezil has a mobile clinic and an orphanage with 12 kids because he believes that his life was meant to give hope and a promise of a better tomorrow for his people. He has taken this heavy load upon himself and he trusts that he's not alone. He asks that you stand with him to provide a home for the fatherless children, and medicine to the sick and poor.
Here is Dr. Andrezil in his own words(translated from Kreyol):
Why you are passionate about the kids?
I was raised by a family who really loves kids. My mom and my dad had many kids that they helped constantly. I cultivated the same passion which is helping the kids when I became an adult. For instance, I used to help kids in the neighborhood on an educational basis by buying them supplies like bags, books, notebooks and pens. After a while, God started to show me the inestimable value of the kids. Because he didn’t sacrifice his life only for the adult, but for the kids as well.
There would never be a better future if the kids are not taught to accept themselves and be comfortable mentally and physically. That basically means that we have to provide them food, education, teach them about their personal value and about God and who He truly is. Children are the future of everything.
Why do you love your country?
I always think that there’s no reason why someone, especially a Christian, doesn’t love his country. Because God has a reason for everything. And He has a main reason why he created every single human being in a specific country. If God chose to create me to be Haitian, it’s because he has a mission for me and I started to feel and experience it. What I want to accomplish is to put all the Haitians together following God’s willingness to empower the nation for a better tomorrow for the upcoming generations.
What is your biggest need?
My biggest need is financial help to rent a house where the kids can live in permanently and to have opportunity to organize some mobile clinic just to check on people’s health in some vulnerable places.
