Dr. Eugene Maklin, a loving, kind, and brilliant Haitian doctor, is building a hospital of hope in a destitute area of Northern Haiti.  Right now, over 250,000 Haitians have no way to get medical help. 
All funds will directly help build this "New Hope Hospital" in an area so it can serve an enormous part of Northern Haiti, called Plaine Du Nord.  The health needs are huge.  The sick currently undertake a dangerous foot journey to distant hospitals to receive care, if they can even attempt it.  As a result, many go untreated and suffer unnecessarily.

Dr. Maklin's plan is straighforward:  employ Haitian workers to build the hospital, use a Haitian medical staff, provide HOPE to a large area of Northern Haiti.

Severe health problems cripple people in rural Haiti. This hospital will  help solve a considerable number of major health problems:
       rate of infant mortality/maternal mortality
       cases of malnutrition
       intestinal worms
       mortality due to tetanus, measles, polio, rubella
       lymphatic filariasis
       acute respiratory infections   

The Haitian government wants to care for the poor and sick of the Plaine Du Norde, but has only given Dr. Maklin the land for the hospital.  Now it is up to him to raise $300,000 to make this hospital building which will provide free healthcare. 
Think of it!  
Even $5 (the cost of a cup of coffee) will make a world of difference.

Dr. Maklin was born in Haiti and is commited to serve his wonderful Haitian people. 
Look at the progress so far!

Dr. Maklin is fighting the cholera epidemic,too.  He is simply amazing and incredibly effective.

Here is a note from Dr. Maklin:
Guess what? some people start bringing patients to the hospital, they think that we are functioning--Just to tell you how badly they need that facility.
I had to tell them we have started seeing patients yet.
Sorry I had to tell them we haven't started seeing patients yet.

I have been to Haiti but today I am visiting him as a patient in the hospital here in Charlotte, NC as he heals from having been shot in Cap Haitian earlier last week. Please pray for him and those who attend to him here during his convalescence. Also pray for his family and all those he left behind to take care of his patients in Haiti. May God bless him for a speedy recovery and God bless the people of Haiti. Bill LaMay
