Holistic Community Development

Sunday, June 9, 2024

At MOHI, we facilitate holistic community development—and we absolutely love it!!!

We enable those who don't go to impact still. We empower those who go for a visit to impact those at home as well as those on the island of Hispaniola. We build a bridge between those who have and those who have not. That bridge is paved with love, care, and compassion toward everyone who walks it.

In Haiti:

This past week has been incredibly busy at the clinics at MOHI. Our dedicated medical and dental staff worked tirelessly, ensuring each patient received thorough and compassionate care. They took the time to listen to each patient's concerns, order necessary tests, diagnose conditions, prescribe appropriate medications, and provide education on managing their health. Emphasis was placed on the importance of keeping medications out of reach of children.

When times are tough, we tend to be extra appreciative of our home church. Pastor Edon cares deeply for the people attending Eglise Evangélique Mission of Hope. He has the heart of a shepherd.

Our students are diligently working through their final month of the school year. Despite the challenges, their determination and hard work are truly inspiring.

Lovena is in her second year of preschool. Here's some of her schoolwork:

A heaping plate of food during school hours is crucial in helping our children stay focused and energized. Many of these children rely on school meals as their primary source of nutrition due to the high food prices caused by the ongoing turmoil in the country.

This past week, there was a school recreation day. The high school students chose to organize a soccer match between two teams of classmates. Even at school, soccer matches are quite the social affair.

In the Dominican Republic:

Nurse Marlouse, our Community Health Promoter, was busy this week educating mothers on the importance of prenatal vitamins, generously provided by our partners at Bless Back Worldwide.

Her dedication to the health and well-being of infants and toddlers is evident as she tracks their growth, ensuring they are developing well.

Nurse Marlouse always receives a warm welcome from the children in Cambiaso, who greet her with joy, jumping, shouting, and plenty of hugs.

We are excited that the START NOW Early Childhood Intervention program continues actively feeding infants and toddlers in La Grúa and Baraguana. This initiative ensures that these community's youngest and most vulnerable members receive the nutrition they need to thrive. The program's support is making a significant difference in the health and development of these children.

Pastor Lex has been hard at work in La Grúa. The water house construction has progressed to the point where the roof pour is scheduled for today.

The well is now producing a good amount of water, and John has completed the assembly of the water system. This means we are getting very close to providing the community with clean, running water!

Your prayers and support continue to make a significant impact in the lives of many. Thank you for partnering with us in this mission.
