July 1, 2016 - Bridge of Life Volunteer video
We are always grateful for the medical professionals who volunteer their time, skills and expense to serve the health needs of the Haitian people. Medical care is widely unavailable in rural areas in Haiti. Typically, our Medical-Surgical Clinic hosts surgery teams who perform operations, often rescuing a patient from a life of misery or possibly death. While our Haitian-run Clinic serves people daily with normal tropical illnesses, medical teams from the U.S. who conduct rural community clinics are a necessary addition to our outreach. We thank the Bridge of Life medical team for their selfless service recently – in a one week period over 1800 people where seen and helped! Click on the link above to view what was accomplished through their efforts and a few of our medical personnel. - Vernon Giesbrecht, N.A. Coordinator, Double Harvest
