The team worked non-stop for 6 hours to serve over 150 patients from the neighborhood of Croix-des-Missions/Mapou. The families and children were especially grateful to received much needed medical attention and treatments.

It was a very busy and successful clinic. With records on 151 patients, we saw that 65% were female, 37% were 12 or under, our oldest patient was 84 and our youngest 5 months. Many of the patients suffered from gastric distress, pain, infections and poor nutrition. Clinics like these are critical to provide a path to better health and to serve as a teaching moment for better nutrition, the importance of clean water and to offer hope.  All the families were very grateful and asked that we come back to their neighborhood soon.

Thank you to all our supporters who donated funds, medicines and beanie babies that allowed us to host this clinic mobile. Together we bring hope so all can shine like the stars.
