BENEFITING: MIDWIVES FOR HAITI INC
Our group (Drs. Marks, Adams, and Sachak and Chris, RN) will be going to Haiti from July 10-July 26 to provide needed medical help and training particularly in managing high risk OB patients and Neonatal ICU patients in rural communities in Haiti. We will also be providing primary medical care through Midwives for Haiti clinics/hospitals, mobile clinics, NICU and neonatal feeding center, with the intention that Haitian nurses, midwives and medical students can continue to improve the lives of their community members after we leave.
We are hoping to take IVs, baby blankets, Obstetric supplies (sutures, sterile equipment), Antibiotics and medications like Methotrexate and Cytotec with us. Please see https://midwivesforhaiti.org/requested-donations-and-supplies.html for the complete list of requested items. If you have any supplies to donate, please contact either of us! We are also accepting monetary donations to assist us with the costs associated with our volunteer efforts.
Thanks to all of the support from our colleagues at Eau Claire Family Medicine Clinic!! Scroll through the photos to see some of the donations we have already received!
