Health Fair

The popularity of our annual health fair has grown tremendously since the year 2000. Our volunteer doctors and nurses have examined over a thousand patients including children and elderly. Some of these patients were found to be in serious health danger and thus were sent straight to the local hospital where they were admitted.Thanks to the help of Dr. Wesner Moise and pharmacist Jean Marie Joseph who have donated most of the medication to the health fair, our patients were able to go home with their prescription drugs filled free at no cost to them. Furthermore, our Safe Sex Campaign has gained more popularity then most of our programs. During the past four years, we have allocated and donated over fifty thousand of condoms to any who need and request them.
