|Welcome to Forward In Health
FIH volunteers travel to Haiti 3-4 times per year. Missions include medical teams and a third world cultural experience for high school and college students.
Health care is provided to the poor in a community that has limited to no local access to medical care.
Over the counter and prescription medicine, basic medical supplies and building materials are provided for a nursing home.
Volunteers have fed, held, and comforted handicapped children and sick infants that might not be held otherwise. They have cooked meals, sanded and refinished beds, and brightened the day of residents of a nursing home.
A medical clinic will be built and will bring a permanent medical presence to a community that does not have medical care. Benefits to the community will include; clean drinking water, preventive health education, prenatal care, and HIV/Aids testing to prevent further transmission of the virus to a new generation.
