Haiti Medical Missions Update

Ashley Wilkins - Hand of Hope Medical Missions Coordinator

Two weeks ago Charle was riding his bicycle around his remote village in Haiti when he fell and scraped his ankle. Little did Charle know that a small scrape like that could soon threaten his life. Charle walked past our medical clinic today when the dirty bandage on his ankle caught my eye. I brought him inside and we found a very serious, infected wound that went almost to the bone. Had we not treated Charle today, he could have lost his leg or even his life due to the severity of the infection. We cleansed his wound and started him on antibiotics that will keep him healthy.

I am so thankful that our medical team is currently here in Haiti helping many people like Charle. We have been able to administer treatment to thousands of patients in rural villages and share the love of Christ with every single one!

I would like to say thank you from the field to all of our wonderful partners who have helped us bring treatment to the Haitian people.

Hand of Hope is the missions arm of Joyce Meyer Ministries. Our goal is simply to help as many hurting people as we possibly can, to alleviate human suffering and to help Christians grow in their faith.
