A group of St. Vincent physicians, nurses and other medical professionals will be embarking on a medical mission to Haiti during the first week of April. As a member of this group, I would like to tell you about the work we will be doing. We will be giving of our time and energy to provide quality health care to the people of Haiti. Surgical services will be provided to those in need. Most Haitians live on less than $700 a year. They are extremely grateful for the help we can provide.

Of course, any such venture comes with various expenses. Thanks to a grant made available to us, part of the trip will be funded. The rest of the trip is being funded by our own personal resources. However, you can help. This webpage has been created to give others the opportunity to donate to our cause.

Our expenses include 16 tickets to Port-Au-Prince as well as transportation to and from O'Hare International Airport. Another big cost are luggage fees for all of our needed medical supplies and food for the entire team for a week.

As the date of the trip is getting near, we are all working quickly to get things in order. Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated. Your assistance will hopefully allow us to treat many Haitians, and even change their lives.

Thank you for your time!
