33 people waiting in the rain for their medication. Similar to the above picture that was taken at a previous clinic, this was the scene that again awaited our nurse one day recently in Dondon. Our Haitian nurse and nurse's aide see patients and provide their medications from a small room generously provided by a local church. However there is no shelter from the elements for those waiting, many of whom have walked long distances to receive their medication. It also lacks electricity and running water.
Thanks to the generosity of our donors we are getting closer to beginning construction of our permanent clinic. With the help of our GlobalGiving and other fundraisers we are approximately halfway to the point where we can begin construction. We have the land and we have committed local and international volunteers. Still we need your continued generosity down the homestretch to make the clinic a reality!
The progress we have made in the last year, all while continuing to pay for medications for around 400 patients, and providing a living wage to our nurse and nurse's aide are a testament to the dedication and generosity of our supporters.
Please consider a year end donation to Haitian Vision Foundation. Your donation in any amount will make a difference!!
