Why A Health Center?

While Jean was in Haiti in September 2016, this trip to Bombardopolis is one he will never forget. He had an experience that haunted him and decidedly changed the course of what was to be built next on the campus. While traveling from Port-au-Prince to Bombardopolis, between the towns of Gonaive and Baie-de-Henne, the road was washed out, destroyed. The vehicle he was traveling in had to turn around and take an alternate route, a much longer route, through Port-de-Paix to Bombardopolis. As his car approached the town of Mare Rouge, he encountered a pregnant woman who was in labor. He stopped to see if he could help. It was decided to hastily get her to the Mare Rouge Clinic, but the baby was not willing to wait. Instead of the baby’s head delivering first, it appeared that an arm was delivering first. Recognizing the complication, and knowing there was no one at the clinic who was able to perform a C-section, nor anyone with knowledge to help her, the consensus was she would need to be taken by car to Port-de-Paix, a grueling road trip and three hours away. After about an hour and a half into the trip, the car she was in encountered a bus that had had an accident and was sideways across the road, blocking all travel. Traffic could not get past it in either direction. This poor woman was not going to make it to Port-de-Paix. Sadly, the car she was in had to turn around to take her back home where she and the unborn baby would most likely die. There was no other medical facility in the area she could have been taken to for help.

With a lot of prayer and fasting, plans began to form for
 a health center on the OIH campus. It was always in the plans. We just did not know when it would be in God’s plan. OIH received a generous donation to begin the foundation for the OIH Health Center, and so with donations totaling $276,556, we are pleased to report that the construction of the OIH Health Center is well under way! This is a modern-day miracle!

The building engineer has estimated that the total cost for the Health Center project will be
 in the neighborhood of $800,000.
