The Dessalines Eye and Dental Clinic (DEADC), was part of the HHA (Haiti Health Advocates), an inter-denominational organization led by FM Associate Missionary Dan Snyder.
WOMBAT supported the DEADC from 2012-2016. Read below some new developments to the Eye and Dental Clinic. WOMBAT has given at least:
2012 - $8,000 approx
2013 - $12,000
2014 - $18,000
2015 - $21,000
2016 - $23,000
2017 - $14,745
2018 - $20,000
Dr. David Becker together with Pastor Nelson Brandymore, from the Coldwater Free Methodist Church has taken the eye care mobile with funds WOMBAT has given. With these funds, care has been given in more remote areas and no longer is tethered to Dessalines! Further, the gospel has been spread!!! Funds were also given in 2017 to help Deb Sarno with Team Teach Haiti to provide instruction to teachers concerning critical thinking. Previously most classroom instruction was provided through rote. This upcoming year we will also provide some funds to the Haiti Bible Institute, of which Superintendent Ron White has been providing assistance for many years. WOMBAT riders have personally helped with these ministries, thus we have hands on experience with these funds knowing they are being used directly! No funds given have been used for salaries, as all the labor has been donated as well! Effective!
