Matthew Devastates Visitation Hospital’s Haitian Community of Petite Riviere de Nippes
The southwest area of Haiti was hardest hit by Hurricane Matthew which includes Visitation Clinic’s Petite Riviere de Nippes area. Roads and bridges have been swept away preventing transportation west into Port au Prince and transportation to the Clinic from the east. With this tragedy, Visitation Clinic is even more the community’s home base for healthcare and needed medicines.
Many generous donors made the construction of our Visitation Clinic possible ensuring it was built with expertise and great care to withstand the ravages of hurricanes and earthquakes. The Clinic itself has survived the horrendous weather there, but a bridge leading to the Clinic has fallen, the storage area housing medical supplies and equipment was severely damaged and many of its contents were destroyed. We are struggling to bring needed supplies and medicines to the Clinic despite transportation and communication issues. Donations during this critical time will be greatly appreciated, wisely used and will bless the children and families of Haiti who have lost their homes.
Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. The average income per capita for their nearly 10 million people is $250 U.S./year.
This poverty contributes to Haiti's endemic nutritional deficiencies, tuberculosis, typhoid fever, bacterial and protozoal dysenteries, and malaria.
