Haiti Medical Relief Trip 2019
Whitetulip holds pediatric mobile clinics at regular intervals in about 12 orphanages reaching more than 500 orphans in the districts of Croix-des-Bouquets, Delmas, Tabarre and Kenscoff. Our goal is to address the social and biological determinants of health in underserved areas of Haiti. Our group consists of pediatricians, family medicine physicians, nurses, pharmacists and other volunteers from the United States. Whitetulip provides acute medical attention, nutritional supplementation through the dispersal of multivitamins, decrease parasite burden through anti-parasite medication administration, and nutrition and hygiene education to parents and children. Over the last three visits, Whitetulip has cultivated a relationship between local hospitals and local communities.
