Sové Lavi hosts Noah Medical Mission
Sové Lavi (Saving Lives) recently hosted a medical mission at their benevolent medical clinic in Pont-Sondé, Haiti
The mission was sponsored by the National Organization for the Advancement of Haitians (NOAH). Over 50 medical practitioners and Howard University medical students participated in the mission that treated upwards of 5,000 patients. The medical professionals split into two groups and traveled to several villages throughout Haiti, including visiting the Sové Lavi clinic in Pont-Sondé.
“These Haitian-American doctors represent great role models for the Haitian Diaspora. They are demonstrating that they are on this earth to give back to the poor of their homeland,” said Dumas Siméus, founder of Sové Lavi. The Pont-Sondé community was thrilled to again welcome back our friends from NOAH and to receive the much needed medical care.
Sové Lavi was proud to have three of its Board members join the mission to serve the Pont-Sondé community: Dr. May Parisien, Dr. Serge Parisien, and Dr. Gary Jean-Baptiste. Another Board member was a co-coordinator for the entire mission, Dr. Berthie Labissière. The two other mission coordinators are friends of Sové Lavi: Dr. Joe Baptiste and Dr. Henry Paul.
“In addition to our gratitude to our Board members for their benevolent work, we would also like to thank our clinic’s administrators and medical staff for doing an outstanding job during the mission,” said Siméus.
Sové Lavi is a 501c3 non-profit organization that serves the poor in Haiti with medical care, potable water and education.
