“We are not to simply bandage the wounds of victims crushed beneath the wheels of injustice, we are to drive a spoke into the wheel itself.”
― Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Latest News From The Team
We are sad to report that the political upheaval roiling Haiti in recent weeks forced us to cancel the trip. Rest assured, the funds we raised will go directly to Haitian organizations continuing their lifesaving work -- despite violent protests, roadblocks, fuel shortages, and lack of drinking water.
The medications we shipped to Port Au Prince in advance of our trip arrived there safely. They will be of tremendous use to our colleagues at Hôpital Sainte Croix, the base of operations for visiting teams like ours and for the regional health care program.
What We Do
Every year we send a team of medical and non-medical volunteers from a variety of faith communities to the Leogane area of Haiti. In collaboration with Haitian colleagues and local health officials, we set up medical clinics in remote villages that have little or no access to medical and dental care.
Why We Do It
This ministry began at Parish of the Epiphany in Winchester. While many of us are parishioners, it has grown to include volunteers from numerous Boston area communities of faith.
Giving of our time and money is really important. Equally valuable is our work to eradicate the systems and policies which keep people poor and oppressed, which is why our social witness and advocacy is a critical expression of our faith.
