|Purpose of the Haiti Mission:|
Since 1996, St. Malachy Parish in Brownsburg, IN, has been providing medical, dental, vision, educational, economic and water purification assitance through a faith-based, long-term relationship with the 50,000 members of Ste, Marguerite Parish and its five chapels (Corail, Haut Petit, Bogne, Bas Petit Borgne,Ti Boy and Bas Quartie) and the Port Margot community in Northern Haiti.
Mission trips with volunteer doctors, dentists, optometrists, engineers and water purification experts from Brownsburg and the Indianapolis area travel to Haiti on mission trips to aid our brothers and sisters in Haiti. In the past 21 years these 60 trips have:
- Built a medical clinic, dental office, maternity unit and pharmacy staffed year round by local doctors and nurses. The clinic has saved the lives of hundreds of victims of the earthquake and the subsequent cholera epidemic.
- 350 students are being educated, clothed and fed through the "Sponsor-a-child" program.
- Provided clean water to hundreds of families through the Gift of Water organization and Fountians of Hope International, Inc. to provide point of use water purification systems to the community.
Proceeds from the Haiti Walk-Run-Ride will fund the St. Malachy medical clinic at Port Margot, Haiti. It helps by providing salaries for the doctors, nurses and staff that care for the community at the St. Malachy Clinic. It also provides life saving medications and diagnostic lab test to help treat many common diseases such as Hypertension, Diabetes and other common infections such as Malaria, Cholera & Malnutrition. The maternity unit provides care to women and children with modern facilities and treatment.
