Located only 12 km from the Haitian border, FIMRC’s Project Restauración serves a large Haitian population who have little access to health care in the area. The area's medical facilities are underfunded, thus FIMRC aims to strengthen the current infrastructure rather than operate a stand alone facility.
Volunteers maintain important roles through working weekly with our diabetes and hypertension support group and conducting blood pressure and glucose checks on those patients. Volunteers also work extensively to develop and lead health education sessions in both mother's centers and in schools, focusing on topics like mental health, sexual health, first aid, etc. Volunteers may also learn about the health care system from within by observing medical staff in the local hospital and clinics.
FIMRC is proud to be a grassroots sustainable organization. Volunteer with FIMRC and make an impact with an organization that's working in the community even long after your trip!
