Mission team brings health to Haitians

Friday, October 12, 2012
  • Assistant Professor of Science John Bell led a group from Corban to provide healthcare in Haiti.

 

More than two years after a devastating earthquake in Haiti, Christians are responding with medical and personal care and a message of hope in Jesus Christ. In May, fifteen students, staff and alumni from Corban responded to the ongoing needs of the Haitian people during a medical mission.

Throughout their journey, the Corban mission team walked miles into remote villages with food. They also provided care for dehydration, malnourishment, wounds, and diseases such as cholera. They gave prenatal, care dental and emergency care.

“These folks all came to serve,” said Assistant Science Professor John Bell. “The medical professionals expected kids, but found the Corban students to be very strong assets.

“When it came down to it, the Corban contingent formed the spiritual backbone of the trip. They were able to take that Christian worldview they have been building and growing throughout college and provide strong Christian leadership.”
