Nursing services:

Medical Trips are conducted in the Village of Lebrun in Haiti at the
HavServe team Project sites. The clinic serves about 50 patients a day
from the surrounding areas and is run by our Haitian nurses and their
team. Medical Trips help us to equip Haitians to help themselves by
working closely with our Haitian medical staff to ensure they can
provide the best possible care to the community.
Travelers will work alongside our Haitian nurses in the Lebrun
community to see patients during the morning, and in the afternoon
will participate in trainings with our Haitian medical team. The 7
days basic trip outline involves 2 days of travel and 5 days of
clinic/trainings.
