Children’s Hope – Haiti

Children’s Hope

Medical Clinic – Haiti

Medical/Dental Clinic

We are thrilled to announce that on March 1, 2015, we opened the Medical/Dental Clinic at Children’s Hope. Our clinic has a state of the art laboratory, dental exam rooms and equipment, medical exam rooms, and  pharmacy.

The people of Haiti are plagued by many different health concerns.  Among those are Tuberculosis, Malaria, HIV AIDS, and Cholera.  Add contaminated water, insufficient food, 80% unemployment, and a broken medical system to the list, and the need for a medical/dental clinic is very clear.

God’s Word also makes it very clear:  Matthew 25:34-36  ‘Then the King (Jesus) will say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you too Me in; I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.’

We have need for medical and dental personnel to travel to Haiti to provide free clinics for the Haitian people.  Currently we have several medical and dental teams each year.  Typically these missionaries visit villages in the mountains and serve in our on-site clinic.  Dental care is basically non-existent for the average Haitian and medical care is limited and many times sub-standard.

The building, medicines, supplies and equipment are provided through donations from individuals, churches, mission teams and other organizations.  We would love to discuss these opportunities with you.

To schedule a medical/mission trip, please contact Ann Amster at ann@childrens-hope.com.

OUR STORY

It started with a lamborghini.
The car was parked in the garage of Dr. Jeff Rice, an oralmaxillo facial surgeon in Pennsylvania. 
After traveling abroad for medical missions—and meeting Ricardo Castro, a native Honduran and former director of the Global Health Organization in Central America—he decided to found the Rice Foundation. 
So in 2007, he sold the lamborghini.
With the money he earned as a result, he and Ricardo began to focus on sharing the gospel and joining in God’s redemption work in Honduras. Ricardo noticed that most international missions groups traveled to Tegucigalpa, so the Rice Foundation decided to work in northern Honduras—in the villages along the coast and in the mountains near the Guatemalan border.
In the following years, the Rice Foundation has grown to include education, construction, and clean water projects—in addition to providing medical relief and leadership development to the people of Honduras.
