Petit-Goave, Haiti


For the past two weeks, The Dr. Henri Gerard Desgranges Foundation (Centre Medico Social Henri Gerard Desgranges) has been working in collaboration with Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF)/ Doctors Without Borders in Petit Goave, Haiti. The H.G.D.Medical Center along with M.S.F. have been providing medical care and building sanitation facilities; we have set up two tents, one for medical administration and the other for treating patients.  A group of physicians and paramedics have been treating approximately 150-200 patients per day. There has been a new phase of medical incidence in the past week; the medical workers have continued to provide wound care along with new cases of diarrhea, hypertension, diabetes, malnutrition, skin diseases, and continuous hygiene issues. The center continues to need medication, including but not limited to: antibiotics, anti-hypertensive, and anti-diabetes medication.

The Medical Center HGD needs your continued support!
