The first clinic in Panyol is underway and I am so excited, the community is in disbelief and the sky is the limit for the next 9 clinics.
A special THANK YOU to Tricia Mattson for dreaming of a place with red soil, to Julie Louis for letting us drag you there while missing Lacoma, to Myriam Ambroise for your "subliminal" bravery and desire to come back home, to Jenna Martinez who agrees with me that all kids in Haiti should be able to see, to Kelly Wirt who says "Don't put God in a box!" and for making this thing possible, to Terry Fee and David Dupre who behave like my godparents and bless everything I do, to Elizabeth Huston and everyone at 3 Strand Cord who are the best friends a Haitian missionary girl could have, to Engineer Previl Sineas who makes my impossible construction ideas a reality, to Francois Dieubon who I met on the street 3 years ago and is the main reason why I came to Panyol in the 1st place. To Laurent Lamothe and everyone at FLGL for loving the people of Panyol. To my family who love and support my wild humanitarian ideas and have come to accept that I gotta go where He sends me so they come too. I love each of you and all who have made this possible in whatever way.
Before I get off topic.....Here are some BEFORE pictures of the small space that has been alloted to OSPP to build the clinic...... (I wish this thing had spell check)
I read in a book that helping hurts. But I think that not helping at all is worse! My name is Fabienne Goutier and I grew up between Haiti and the US. I have been a nurse for 12 years, I have been working in Haiti for more than 7 of those years in the nursing, development and empowerement sectors. It has been a ride that I am not sure I can describe. To make it less colorful I can say it has been that roller coaster ride that is too late to get off of but you know you will get to the slow part any second now.......
During those years I found some like minded people who have the same goals as I, to allow Haiti to heal slowly but with a boost every now and then. We developed a Haitian NGO named Oganizasyon Sante Peyi Pam (OSPP), which has a mission to build 10 clinics in the deep rural parts of Haiti. We have already raised some money to build our very first OSPP clinic in Pagnol and are also currently working out of a rented space in Delmas. OSPP has already succeeded in supporting 5 clinics for the past 7 years with a proven track record of seeing healthier patients over time. This kind of help needs to continue.
These 10 clinics would serve to treat preventable illnesses, hire and train local staff, teach on important topics such as diet, impending disasters and emergencies, specialty team arrivals, prayer and more.
Each clinic would be built on donated land.
This fund raiser is for the cost of building the 10 clinics around Haiti and to stock it with the basic materials and medications at this time. So far the locations for clinics are as follows: Pignon, Jacmel, Ouanaminth, Dame Marie, Cabaret, Pagnol, Thiotte, Mole St. Nicolas, Anse a Veau and Fonds des Negres.
The first clinic needs to have the foundation built by October 30th and then one each month later.
Can you give $42 now and maybe each month to support this important project? It would help so many people that would likely not get medical treatment otherwise.
If you have any questions please send me a message. Thank you so much!!
