Move for Medicine

Join us on a virtual journey around Haiti

The second annual move event will take place from June 1 -30th 2022.  You can get out your walking shoes, jump on your bike or 'move' however you want as we collectively travel around the perimeter of Haiti.  We will begin our journey at Cap Haitien International airport and travel west along the 1100 miles of Caribbean coastline visiting places like Port au Prince, Jeremie and the Blue Lagoon at Jacmel.  Then we will travel along the 223 miles of land border with the Dominican Republic and admire Haiti's beautiful mountains before returning to our starting point in Cap Haitien.

This year, all funds raised will go towards buying medicine and other operating costs to ensure the pharmacy is kept well stocked and Bethesda can continue to provide high quality medical care in Northern Haiti.

Moving is always more fun with friends and this year we would love to see teams from churches, small groups, sports teams and families taking part. 

Have you been on a mission trip to Haiti and visited Bethesda in the past?

Has Dr Rodney or a Bethesda missionary visited your church or small group?

 

Does your small group pray regularly for Haiti and for Bethesda?

Do you and your family or friends have a passion for Haiti and for the people of Haiti to have access to healthcare?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, why not get a team together with those people. 

This year we are offering to have Dr Rodney (internet dependent) or a board member speak to your group on zoom about Move for Medicine and to share more about what Bethesda is doing in Haiti right now.  You and your team will also have the opportunity to ask questions. 

We also have a team leader pack available to download which will tell you everything you need to know for your team to take part in Move for Medicine. 

Every week your team will receive email updates along with prayer requests for Bethesda and for Haiti helping you feel more connected to the work in Haiti. 

You can also join the facebook group which will give daily updates about the journey around Haiti and help you learn more about the people and country of Haiti. 

Doing Move for Medicine as part of a team means you will not only have fun, get fit and raise funds but it will also strengthen your community as your move and pray together during the month of June.
