Project Haiti (PH) is a medical relief trip, which provides unique and valuable service-learning opportunities for volunteers. Our team is composed of providers and students from a variety of specialties. The goal of each trip is to strike the perfect balance between education and service. We strive to provide high-quality and compassionate medical care to the populations we serve, while providing our volunteers with opportunities to become better providers. Our in-country partner, Haitian Christian Mission (HCM), is located in the Fonds-Parisien region of Haiti. During our trip, we work at their hospital facility and create a mobile, week-long clinic to supplement the medical care HCM provides to the community. HCM provides transportation, translators, housing, and meals to the team. They have a surgical center, maternity ward, and dormitories; on-site.
There are usually 5 to 6 days of clinic. A majority of the group sets up a mobile clinic in a near-by village. Members of the surgical and anesthesiology team remain on campus to treat patients. This allows us provide life-changing surgeries and also access patients in some of the most remote areas of Haiti.
