Sharing the gospel of Christ through

compassionate healthcare in Haiti.

Bethesda Medical Center

Haiti has a very weak healthcare system, with roughly 40% of the population lacking access to basic healthcare. Many people in Haiti die from a preventable, treatable illness such as diarrhea, infections and TB. Sadly, 1 in 15 children will die before they reach their 5th birthday. 

Even for those who live close to a health care facility, often they cannot afford the fees for a doctor.  At Bethesda we will not turn anyone away but instead offer medical assistance and the gospel of Christ.

The Compassion  Fund

It has been 17 months since the assassination of Haiti's President, Jovenel Moise. Months full of violence and political unrest, gang wars in Port au Prince, and fuel shortages taking prices up to $30(US) a gallon. Inflation is at 30% and rising. Now, after three years of being Cholera free, a new outbreak has begun which has been attributed in part to a lack of clean water. These factors have led to a humanitarian crisis on a massive scale. The UN has described it as a humanitarian catastrophe with almost 5 million people struggling with acute hunger and for the first time ever 19,000 people are in the Catastrophe phase (IPC analysis)- starvation, in layman’s terms.

 

The situation is heartbreaking and seemingly hopeless.

But we are not without hope

We are so thankful that during this time of crisis Bethesda has been able to stay open, every day, 24/7 to provide high-quality medical care to those most in need.

 

Our staff is making daily sacrifices to get to work and the leadership team is working extremely hard to ensure we have fuel, medicine, and medical supplies.

Bethesda not only brings hope in terms of physical health but also everlasting hope in the gospel of Jesus Christ. 

This end of year campaign where we will be raising money for The Compassion Fund. This fund is specifically set aside to help patients who are in desperate need of care but unable to pay either for part or all of their treatment.

This has always been a part of what Bethesda does but since the beginning of 2022 we have seen a 390% increase in the number of people needing to use this service. 

Get involved

Because of you, our generous donors, we are able to offer care to those you can’t afford our services.  No patient will ever be turned away.  As well as financial support, we also need people to pray and volunteer their time and skills. Find out more about how you can get involved.
