Healthcare Mission Trip to Haiti
Organized by: Kaitie Wood
"To whom much is given, much is expected" is a phrase my family does their best to live by. I am incredibly blessed to be able to look up to many missionaries who live out this creed in their daily lives. Inspired by the generous, genuine actions of these wonderful people I call my mentors and friends, and presented with the opportunity to be more like them, I find myself three months away from being able to go give back to some families who are in need. I will travel to Cap-Haitien, Haiti this spring break (February 25th - March 4th) to work with some incredible missionaries assisting in Mobile Clinics by doing health teaching on topics such as hygiene, prevention of dehydration and malnutrition, sanitation, HIV/AIDS, etc. I will be using my skills and knowledge set as a registered nurse to help a doctor and two nurse practitioners in health assessment and treatment of patients. Most importantly I will be demonstrating the love of Jesus to adults & children; meeting their physical and spiritual needs.
