|Purpose of the Haiti Mission:|
Since 1996, St. Malachy Catholic Church in Brownsburg Indiana has been in a partnership with Ste. Marguerite Parish in Port Margot Haiti. The Haiti Mission provides support for church, medical, dental, education, and water programs through a faith-based, long-term relationship. Port Margot is a community with population of the 50,000. Ste, Marguerite Parish in located in the center of town but also has five smaller chapels (Corail, Haut Petit, Bogne, Ti Boy and Bas Quartie) in the northern part of Haiti.
Mission trips with volunteer doctors, nurses, dentists, pharmacist, engineers and volunteers from every background from Brownsburg, Indiana & around the US travel to Haiti on mission trips to help our brothers and sisters.
St. Malachy medical clinic was built in 2002 and since that time has expanded to include a dental office, maternity unit, laboratory and pharmacy staffed year around by local doctors and nurses. The clinic is modern and has a beautiful maternity unit that delivers over 350 babies a year. The new ambulance can transport patients with critical emergencies to a higher level of care when needed.
The Servants of Mary Religious Nuns are responsible for the St. Malachy Clinic. Madre Reyes is the “Chief Nun”, but they all are the “Heart” of the operations to ensure that patients get the care they need. The nuns also do home visits to members of the community that can’t walk to the clinic.
The water program has ensured that clean water gets to thousands of families throughout the community. Two programs: Gift of Water & Fountains of Hope International, Inc. provide point of use water purification systems to the community. Contaminated water is the number one cause of disease and illness in Haiti & clean water saves lives!
Sponsor-A-Child program helps over 250 children a year to be able to attend school. Sponsoring a child assist with tuition, uniforms & lunches. Ste. Marguerite has two schools associated with the parish: St. Theresa primary & secondary school & St. Joseph primary school. Over 2500 children attend the both schools.
Proceeds from the Haiti Walk-Run-Ride will go to fund the St. Malachy Haiti Mission in Port Margot, Haiti. It helps by providing salaries for doctors, dentist & nurses in the clinic. It also provides lifesaving medications and diagnostic lab test to help treat many common diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, malnutrition and other common infections such as Malaria & Cholera. The maternity unit provides care to women and children with modern facilities and treatment. Funds raised also helps provide education programs, clean water & assistance to those in need.
