There are many good things in Haiti…

Sr. Marilyn brought a new fruit, which is very delicious, from Bishop Launay’s garden. We don’t know the name of the fruit; but it is very good for eating, and even better for juice.

Sr. Giovanni sees Manman Angela Klinik at work

Sr. Giovanni Monge, a Felician Sister from Livonia, MI, is responsible for helping us with funds and medical supplies for the running of the clinic. Last week she came to see the work of the clinic and to offer her nursing skills. She had the opportunity to meet with the village people in areas where the clinics take place, taking time to listen and answer questions. Our visit this week to Cap Rouge, our farthest ride up the mountain, was a long day. Starting at 6:30 a.m. and continuing until 8:30 p.m., the medical staff saw 106 patients. Sr. Giovanni had the opportunity to see how men, women and children come to the village Churches, not only for spiritual healing, but physical healing as well.

Clinic preparation meetings in Monchil and La Font

On Sunday, March 23, together with Sr. Giovanni who is with us for the week, we met with the leaders of the two villages where the clinic will be offered. First we participated in Sunday Mass at St. Yves, Monchil. The Mass was solemn because the choir celebrated its third anniversary. After Mass we had our meeting with the village leaders in preparation for the clinic. There are nurses in this village, who most likely will volunteer to help us for the good of their people. Then we made our way to La Font, about a half hour away, to Our Lady of Perpetual Help, where the village leaders were waiting for us. The people were very interested in the presentation that Dr. Yves made and showed their enthusiasm to help the clinic that will be coming to them every week.

Each of these places where the Mother Angela Clinic will be serving usually had medical attention given them once a year. Now they will have it every week.

Saturday Art Class

Every Saturday, our kids come together for art class, led by our young adults. With our financial help, they were able to purchase materials needed to start a new project with paper mâché, a particular art form famous in Jacmel. The girls are creating all kinds of paper flower arrangements.

Klinik Mobil Manman Angela – Citi Lumineire

On Thursday, March 20 we had our second day of clinic in St. Jude’s chapel, Citi Lumineire. This day we were blest with two doctors. This has been a learning process for us too, we have created a form for the patients to fill out as they wait for their consultation. We have learned quickly that many of our people do not know how to read or write, but we found people who could help them. It is a joy to see all our people working together for the good of each other, especially the young people.
