Altar84 has a deep desire to see our Haitian brothers and sisters resourced, equipped and empowered to care for their orphaned and vulnerable children…and care for them well. We focus primarily on empowering these Haitians by increasing capacity and diminishing vulnerabilities. We desire to see systemic and lasting change not just to individuals but also to the structures and systems manifesting the brokenness and corruption that comes from a broken world.
In 2015 Altar84 took a huge step in launching a multi-phase approach with the launching of a full-scale healthcare initiative. It is our goal to help create a program that is administered and maintained by our Haitian partners through development, proper training and equipping while maintaining a Gospel Centered approach by sharing the love of Christ both verbally and in action (Preach and Heal).
To date medical care has been provided but it has been infrequent due to lack of funding, efficient systems and processes, and solid partnerships. With our new multi-organizational partnerships we now have access to the personnel who can provide not only the care but also the resources needed.
Our goals for this Healthcare Initiative is to provide high quality medical care that includes:
- Medical Screenings
- Emotional Health Screenings
- Vision Screenings
- Dental Screenings
- Treatment and Management of Pathology when Identified
Our next trip is October 13th-17th and on this trip will continue evaluating the children, training leaders, and building capacity to our systems and processes. The reality is we will not be able to do this without your prayers and support.
Please pray for our Haitian Leaders as they continue to work towards building effective systems and processes in caring for their children. Please pray for us as we continue to build our program, raise funds, and gather partners, equipment and medicines. Also, please prayerfully consider giving towards this program. 100% of your gifts will go to fund our Haiti Initiative. Lastly, consider joining us on a trip. If you’re a medical professional or passionate volunteer we would love to connect with you and figure out how we can partner in this endeavor.
