DISASTER RESPONSE TO HAITI
On August 14, 2021, a 7.2 magnitude earthquake struck Haiti claiming over 2200 lives and leaving approximately 650,000 people in need of humanitarian assistance. Multiple international organizations were part of the systematic response. A team of five US FDR Medical volunteers deployed to join seven Haitian medical professionals and 20 Haiti Foursquare Church volunteers for the disaster response. It was wonderful being a part of the local Foursquare Church in Haiti as we served and ministered to their hurting neighbors. Here are a few quotes from Haiti FDR Medical volunteers:
"Rebuilding and never giving up is what we've been learning in this time. Each patient received free medical attention, lab, and medications. Beautiful being able to be part of this Foursquare Disaster Relief project that has blessed hundreds of people who have lost everything."
"It was ten intense days at the epicenter of the earthquake in Haiti. We have seen many disasters and hunger, but we have found many people willing to rebuild. Haiti is a resilient country. Beautiful work, FDR Medical. Haiti needed you at this time."
"There were 1789 patients treated, and 195 people accepted Jesus. Thank you for allowing us to be part of this mission."
FDR's mission and vision is to come alongside, partner with, and equip the local church to bring relief and compassion amid disaster. It was humbling being a part of this team and witnessing the fulfillment of FDR's missiology. Haiti now has an excellent response team that includes Haiti Foursquare Church, five physicians and multiple other medical professionals who have become part of FDR Medical.
