The Mother Angela Clinic continues to grow as we reach out to various areas in the mountains, areas where people have never had access to medical treatment due to distance and rocky roads. But the Clinic team does not allow that to stop them from visiting places where there is a need. On Friday, September 29, the feast of the Archangels, Michael, Gabriel and Raphael, the clinic traveled to a far distant site in the zone of Decouze. We only get to visit this site every month and a half, since we have 28 places in all to visit. Once we left the main road, Nationale 2, we made our way up the mountain on a very rock and steep road. The site was gorgeous, and we felt like we could touch the clouds.
Once we arrived, many people were waiting for a chance to see a doctor and receive medications. As always, we began with prayer and then a few minutes of health education. Today, it was the importance of not sharing medications one receives with someone else, unless it is prescribed by a doctor. Sr. Marilyn shared the story of the Felician Sisters here in Haiti and about Mother Angela’s passion for the sick. She also told everyone how happy we were to be with them.
