Joan Guite is one of the founding members and an RN working with MMM. She has passed on the following note and request:

Ministry in Medical Missions is a local, grass root, non-profit organization that has had an on-going 12 year working relationship with Dr. Manno at his clinic in Limbe’, Haiti. We collect unopened medical supplies and send them on to Dr. Manno, as we have been unable to make our annual trip due to civil unrest and Covid.

We are most interested at this time in wound care supplies.

If you or someone you know has wound care supplies that are no longer needed, please consider donating them to us. We do take outdated dressings and wound cleansers if they are only outdated one year. Please contact me at 218-485-1903

Thank you so much, Joan Guite RN

Letter Received March 11, 2022

Recent Letters from Dr. Manno describe the impacts of heavy flooding in the Limbe’ area. As a result of so many families losing everything to the flood, Sante 2000, Dr. Manno’s clinic is offering free clinics to those affected by the flood. They are seeing many patients with diseases due to contaminated water. Dr. Manno also shares some of his “wish list” for improving services to his community. Please read the letters below:

Hello

We are ok and the staff is motivated. We had some issues with the lab, they refused to be vaccinated. We had to ask them to stay home until they are vaccinated. We want a full vaccinated staff to create trust. Less patients are making it to the clinic because of financial issues. Half of our diabetics patients showed up one or two week after they ran out [of diabetic supplies] and the explanation always is “we didn’t have transportation money”. I am happy with the tele diabetic. It’s not perfect as some can’t read and interpret the result but for most patients it works they don’t come to the clinic as often as they use to and it allows me to give them a regular insulin to use if they blood sugar goes up.

The solar panels keep the clinic running 24/7. When the gallon of gasoline was 20 dollar US, we did not have to buy it. It’s the best investment we did for the clinic. It needs some improvement but it works

The biggest need [right now] is to build a small surgery room for diabetic foot that needs debridement or amputation of toes. Last time we help a patient pay 1000.00 US to amputate a toe in a private clinic. We are in partnership with three surgeon that will come to the clinic on call if we have the setting. The number of patients with ulcers that come to the clinic is alarming. The last one has been in the clinic [receiving care] for two weeks.

Homemade oxygen concentrator! [is another need]. In Creole we would say are you serious? If we didn’t have to buy a microscope (1000 us) we would have ordered an oxygen concentrator, the one we have works intermittently, we can’t run it for a full night and it consumes a lot of electricity

We are also working on putting a plan to help the victims of the flooding

The flooding has been bad. I started to feel the effects at the clinic with people coming with water related disease and can’t pay. We can’t estimate the cost of the flooding, the number of people that lost everything is more important. And the number of cows that were lost for a normal peasant livestock is their bank account. To lose everything in one day is terrible. We plan to buy filters and distribute them to help clean the water they are using. We would like to provide with cleaning tools. We would also like to buy at least 20 mattresses to support families. And the clinic will be free for anyone with water related issues for a week. For three months all Diabetics patients that come from the [flood] affected area, their treatment will be also free or as we say “Agape’.

Received March 15, 2022 from Dr. Manno

Day 2 of the free clinic for the victims of the flooding we already see 160. It’s heartbreaking the number of people that was sick at home and people with high blood pressure. We have two at the clinic with cerebral accident and very young. We discovered three diabetics. I think we need to plan a free day clinic every month
