Situated on the "road" from Cote de Fer to Bainet is the small clinic which I founded for Dariol church. The Christians
wanted to help their community by providing a place for them to seek help when they were ill. Since 1995 Dariol clinic
has been treating the poor from the surrounding communities and at present our files show we have seen 20,000 people.
Many types of illnesses have been diagnosed and treated or referred to larger health facilities. We've seen our
share of miracles also for which we give glory to GOD. People can be seen and receive meds for the equivalent of around
$3-4 US. Those who can't pay are treated anyway. We receive some assistance in the form of some donated meds from
CAM a Mennonite organization.
Our current staff is made up of Miss Giselle Paul, a Haitian Nurse, Vena Jean, who works the pharmacy, and Chilet Germitus
who does the paperwork.
We praise God for making it possible to help the poor and sick of this area of Haiti with a small amount of health care.
Pray for our staff and our patients.

During this scholastic period of 2008-2009 Gospel Growers is giving financial assistance to 14 different Christian schools
here in Haiti. In order to help as many of these schools as possible I've tried to find sponsors for some students in
each so as to share the resources. These funds help to pay the teachers thus allowing the school to function so that
even those who don"t have sponsors benefit.
This is the breakdown on the numbers of students helped in each school:
Renard 30 Bodary 46
Cavalier 23 Lozandie 31
Tranche Roche 20 Gode 26 Boutin
Labiche 3 Jackson 10
Glassi 12 Zabo
We ask sponsors to send $200/year for each child and these funds are made available to that child"s school. Thanks
to the faithfulness and generosity of our sponsors this program has been ongoing since 1986. These children have benefitted
from an education in a Christian environment. This hopefully will be a blessing to Haiti in the future as these
kids grow and take the places in society.
