S t . M i c h e l ’ s C l i n i c , S a l ta d e r e , H a i t i
History
The clinic was first established by the Belgium missionaries in the late
1950’s. The clinic at that time would have served a population of 1015,000. In the early 2000’s, the clinic was moved to the rectory compound and serviced by a beloved parishioner, Gertrude, who was a
medical lab technician. The Haitian Government finally said that the
location was inappropriate and that a licensed nurse was required.
We are thus back to our now 60+ year old clinic.

Current Situation
We now service 40-50,000 people of the Haitian population. If the
border is closed because of disease outbreaks or political issues, than
we are supporting closer to 60,000 people. The closest hospital is
about 45 minutes away on a good day, and weather can make that
journey impossible. This is driving, walking is approximately 2-3
hours for a healthy person which is not the reason for going to a hospital. The closest hospital with specialists is an hour and a half away or
6-8 hours walking. There are three cars in Saltadere to transport
people. This is if the cars are in the village and the river is crossable,
there is no ambulance service.
Currently Saltadere and the area are suffering from a Cholera outbreak. It has impacted over 300 people, with 7 deaths, in the immediate Saltadere area. Statistics from the surrounding community are
not available.
The medical needs of the community are critical but this fundraising
effort is part of the solution. The program will become more selfsustaining over time. These efforts include the education and training
our own nurses and doctors. The populace is realizing the benefits of
proper hygiene and clean drinking water.
