Donations from St. Luke Community Clinic

Donations from St. Luke Community Clinic

Volunteers from the Shenandoah Agency on Aging and the St. Luke Community Clinic made the trip this month to the Medical Missionaries office to drop off medical supplies.  These supplies were collected by the clinic’s doctors, patients, and their family members and donated to organizations like Medical Missionaries.  We commend the St. Luke Community Clinic for the services they provide in Front Royal, and we appreciate the volunteers delivering the donations to us.

Ho-Chunk Indian Reservation

This month we delivered supplies to Wisconsin’s Ho-Chunk Tribe (formerly called the Winnebago Tribe), including clothing, school supplies, hygiene supplies, and sporting goods. The Ho-Chunk people, like other Native Americans, face many challenges, including health care and financial insecurity. For many, their incomes fall below the federal poverty line. They were very grateful for these supplies, and we are grateful for our supporters and volunteers who make it possible for us to help those in need.

Local Aid

Medical Missionaries was able to help out a variety of communities and individuals in the local region this month.  Games, puzzles, and craft supplies were delivered to the Georgetown South Community Center in Manassas.  Our regular shipment of clothing and household supplies was delivered to areas west of Elkins, West Virginia in Appalachia by our faithful volunteers, Bud and Alice.  Medical Missionaries provided financial support for flood victims in Grundy, Virginia after multiple storms hit the area, flooding homes and trailer parks.  We are grateful for all of our donors and volunteers who make it possible for us to serve these communities.

St. Joseph Clinic

Covid Education

The Staff of St. Joseph Clinic in Haiti has been providing COVID education for the villagers of Thomassique, including teaching hand hygiene using hand-washing stations. The Haitian Ministry of Health (MSPP) has also been training clinic staff and community health workers to screen for COVID, and has encouraged them to conduct these education sessions for villagers, as they all continue to work together to keep COVID from spreading in their region.

We are sad to convey the news that one of our Medical Missionaries founders, former board member, and long time volunteer, Ron Burrell, passed away recently.  Ron was a key figure in the building of St. Joseph Clinic in Haiti and many other Medical Missionaries projects.  He spent many weeks in Haiti over several years as the Clinic was slowly pieced together, starting with the water tower, then the staff house, and finally the construction of the Clinic and a number of additional buildings, dormitories, and storage places.  We truly appreciate Ron’s dedicated service to the organization and send our deepest condolences to his family and friends.  May he rest in peace.
