The Felician Haiti Mission has a full house, with visitors from the Dominican Republic and Michigan. For the past few weeks, we have had members of the Neocatechemenal Way with us, while they are having catechesis at St. Michael’s parish.
On Friday, June 7, Dr. Zbigniew Purzycki, MD; his wife, Małgorzata; their daughter Katerina (a future medical student); and their family friend, Emily, who is also a medical student. They have been having a clinic here with our neighbors and, of course, with our children.
Saturday, they unpacked many suitcases with over-the-counter medicines. After that, we took them to where our children live; and we invited folks to visit the clinic on Monday.
Sunday, there were demonstrations in Jacmel, so we could not leave the mission. However, we used our time wisely by preparing medications for Monday’s clinic.
On Monday, adults from around the neighborhood came for the clinic. Sr. Marilyn translated for the doctor and his patients.
Tuesday was clinic day for mothers and babies.
Thank God, Dr. Wanitha was with us because we saw about 50 babies and mothers.
Katerina and Emily have also been going with the Mother Angela Clinic to get some rural nursing and health experience.
