Damou Medical Clinic
Little Boy “Dudley” Is Hit In A Horrific Motorcycle Accident!
Damou Medical Clinic Officially Opens To The Public!
After more than a year and thousands of hours developing plans for the Damou Medical Clinic, including multiple visits to Haiti to evaluate the need, review the site, meetings with numerous contractors and suppliers, and formation of professional affiliations within the international medical community to leverage their connections, talents, and resources. I am excited to announce that Damou Medical Clinic is officially open to the public in Jacmel, Haiti!
It has been an amazing journey that would not have been possible without the tireless work and support of so many amazing people who helped us along the way.
I would like to start by thanking Ms. Kay for convincing me to visit Haiti in 2017. Ms. Kay knew that God was calling her there for something special, and I am grateful for her heart and the friendship that we have developed over the years.
I would also like to thank our wonderful mission partners, Damou Christian Mission (Ms. Jessica and Loubens), including Dr. Wilbert and Pastor Zamor “Z” (who have become a part of our extended family) for sharing their vision with us. They have all spent months working countless hours with our US team, local contractors, and the Haitian Government to help make Damou Medical Clinic a reality.
No words describe our love and gratitude to Ms. Diana Burke, whose family foundation funded our Damou Medical Clinic Project (valued at over a half-million dollars, not including the land and buildings). Damou Medical Clinic would not have been possible without her backing and support. We will forever be grateful to God for bringing you into our lives and to your family for their heart to help the least of these around the world.
I also want to thank Ms. Mary, project lead for Damou Medical Clinic, whose medical knowledge and tenacity proved invaluable throughout the project, and for her friendship and time spent listening to all my concerns (of which there were many) along the way. We could not have done this without you, Ms. Mary.
Also, a very special thanks to Mr. Ian and Ms. Karley, MDA’s Jr. Leadership Team Leads for their team’s efforts in creating and delivering the birthing kits to Dr. Wilbert in Haiti. Their team saw this entire project through from beginning to end! Nicely done, guys! Lastly, a very special thank you to Supplies Overseas (Denise Sears) and TECH for their wonderful organizations that provided supplies and guidance along our journey. Their assistance was amazing and proved invaluable on an international level.
Others still supported us, our MDA Team (Ms. Cindy, Ms. Susan, Ms. Tonia, Ms. Kay, and Ian), including my beautiful wife Leslie, who endured months of my concerns to make sure the project came through as planned.
It was an amazing journey with people who have become more to us than friends; they’re family. Our hearts and love go out to each one of you. I can’t wait to see where God leads us next!
