HAITI SAINTARD HOSPITAL
Haiti has experienced an unprecedented degree of crisis in recent years. Sociopolitical unrest, gang violence, Covid-19 outbreaks, and severe weather events have led to heightened levels of fear and suffering. Through it all, the professional Haitian staff at the hospital continue to risk their lives to serve as the hands and feet of Jesus through it all.
The hospital ministry at Saintard uses general medicine and medical procedures to provide comfort and opportunities for evangelism and spiritual growth. Services include surgery, optometry, dentistry, pediatrics, prosthetics, obstetrics, and internal medicine.
Our goal is to support the ministry of the hospital with $50,000 a year.

The Church of God in Haiti
The Church of God has a history in Haiti spanning more than 50 years, with the primary focus placed upon church planting and support. Within many of the Church of God facilities, schools have been established and a few children’s care facilities are currently operating. Church of God sponsored healthcare, however, has been limited to short-term visiting medical teams, who travel from church to church. In an effort to broaden the medical care opportunities in the outreaches of Haiti, a building was begun with the idea of Haitian medical professionals staffing the facility to provide healthcare on a routine basis with the Church of God coming alongside the indigenous personnel to provide support.
In July 2005, the “Hospital of the Church of God in Haiti” opened its doors. With continuous operation since that time, the hospital has now seen over 200,000 different patients, providing medical, dental, radiographic, laboratory, optometry, pharmacy, prosthetics, and occasionally surgical care. With the advent of 24/7 care in January 2018, the patient care has necessarily shifted from outpatient medical needs to the needs of the more acutely ill patient, who might need overnight services.
There are other needs that need to be met in order to be fully functioning, such as further testing equipment, patient monitors, oxygen tanks, suction units, and nebulizers. These items will continue to insure that we’re able to provide the most complete care possible.
