The Religious Foundation for Health, the Barceló Foundation and the Sisters of the Virgin of Monte Carmelo join forces and built the Santa Teresita medical clinic in Haiti to provide the necessary health services in the Ansapit area.
The commune of Ansapit, one of the poorest areas of Haiti, now has a dispensary whose main objective is to bring medical care to the 36,000 inhabitants, who until now had to drive more than three hours on bad roads to the closest hospital.
The Sisters, with more than 68 years of experience in the Dominican Republic working for the neediest, are in charge of managing the center, as well as carrying out health talks in the area and visits to the beneficiary families.
Thanks to the almost 60,000 euros contributed by the Foundation, the clinic has been built and a security fence has been placed to limit the perimeter. Likewise, they have also purchased the specialized equipment needed to start the gynecology and obstetrics laboratory and practice.
Lastly, the Foundation has also paid for the installation of solar panels at the health center, since Saint-a-Pitre does not have electricity at night. In this way, young people in the area can go to the courtyard of the site to perform their tasks once sunlight falls.
The Foundation has as one of its main objectives to improve the quality of life and health of the population in those countries that most need it. And thanks to that, today more than 1,600 people go to the center every month and more than 220 pregnant women have received specialized medical assistance.
