Haiti March 2014


Dr. Yee went to Haiti with 16 other healthcare workers of Global Health Outreach, a short-term missions program of the Christian Medical and Dental Association (CMDA), to provide medical and dental care to the residents in the town of Mirebalais.  



Haiti is considered one of the poorest countries in the world with 75% of the population living in poverty and more than half the population living on less than a dollar a day. At the time of our visit, the impoverished nation was still in a state of rebuilding since a devastating earthquake hit the country in 2010.


We set up our clinic in classrooms of a local church school.



People lined up early in the morning for free medical exams, tooth extractions, and reading glasses.


 Nurses did preliminary exams and then referred patients to the appropriate doctors for care.



 As Christians, many of us offered prayers for God’s blessing and hope for their future. 



 The rooms were simple and did not have much lighting or electricity. But it kept us out of the hot sun and allowed us to work as long as we did. 



Dr. Yee saw many patients needing extractions for severely decayed teeth.



But it was nice when Dr. Yee was able to see some kids for just a simple checkup. 



Haitians speak French-based Creole and it was helpful to have interpreters Jimmy and Ricardo translate for us. 



The end of the day was always the best time - that is when we get to hang out with the children. We made balloon hats as our souvenirs for them.
