Organisation Sové Lavi Hosts Medical Mission
July 19, 2006 (Pont-Sondé, Haiti)
Organisation Sové Lavi (Saving Lives) was honored to have members of the National Organization of the Advancement of Haitians (NOAH) and 11 medical students from Howard University host a medical mission at their clinic in Pont-Sondé, Haiti on July 19, 2006.
The doctors treated upwards of 300 people during the mission, at no cost to the patients.
“We are privileged to have the support of NOAH since our clinic opened in 1999. Many Haitian-American physicians have selflessly come to Haiti to treat the poor. This is a wonderful example of making a difference and giving back to their birth country,” said Dumas Siméus, founder of Organisation Sové Lavi.
“From the bottom of my heart, I thank Joe Baptiste, Chairman of NOAH, Berthie Labisierre, coordinator of the Mission, and all of the volunteers for their commitment and leadership in helping the poor of Haiti,” he continued.
“NOAH is proud to help the poor of Haiti with medical care,” said Joe Baptiste, NOAH Chairman. “During this medical mission, we were privileged to serve 4 clinics in Haiti and care for 1,000 patients. It is an experience that none of us will ever forget.”
