On Monday, the Haitian Clinic staff and our three Doctors saw 63 patients, while the CSM students at St. Michel School took a number of individual and group photos of the students.
Today Tuesday the students are doing art projects with the older students, these will result in new note cards, which in a few weeks will be available for sale at St. Thomas Church.
The three doctors will visit the St. Joseph Clinic in nearby Thomassique, a larger village to the east. Their clinic has been in existence about 10 years. The visit goal is to gain information the operation of clinics in this region of Haiti. Several of us have met with staff at the clinic on previous visits and were impressed by their accomplishments. This clinic is supported by the Medical Missionaries in the Diocese of Arlington.
