Almost 20 Safe Deliveries at the Clinic Since March 2021!

New Baby Safely Delivered at the Clinic
New Baby Safely Delivered at the Clinic

Chateau, the community we serve, was affected by the 7.2 magnitude earthquake that hit Haiti on Saturday, August 14.

Thankfully, Chateau has reported no fatalities. However, there has been significant structural damage to the clinic and staff residence that CORRECT Health in Haiti helps to fund, as well houses in the local community. The reality in such a low income area like Chateau, is that people often must make the difficult choice to prioritize basic needs, such as rebuilding their homes and paying for their children's education, over health care needs.

The clinic staff has been hard at work providing much-needed care to local community members since the August 14th earthquake. Thanks to your generous donor support during last year's campaign, we were able to finalize the clinic's new maternity room in March 2021. Since then, our Head Nurse, Miss Donia Samedi, has helped to safely deliver almost 20 babies at the clinic! We are encouraging more and more pregnant women to utilize the clinic as a safe setting for deliveries, in case of any complications.

We also believe in incorporating traditional practices, so we are working together with local midwives, known as matwon in Haiti, to ensure the best possible care for our expecting mothers.
