April 2019 Medical Team Returns Home Today another successful Forward in Health medical team returns home. The 18 member team cared for an average of 100-140 patients each day completing 5 medical clinics. Patients needing follow-up were referred to Klinik Fonfred and its excellent Haitian staff.

The next planned medical trip to Les Cayes, Haiti will be in early September.  The exact September dates are not finalized. All teams are between 16 and 18 people.  Both medical and non-medical people are welcome.  All that is required is an open heart and interest in helping the people of a third world country. The cost for traveling is usually about $1,600/person.  This includes everything: Flights, travel in Haiti, lodging, and food. All are welcome.  For more information on traveling with FIH follow the link to our page on medical teams traveling to Haiti:  forwardinhealth.org/medical-missions
