Cap Haitian Haiti.
Haiti has the highest maternal and infant mortality rate in the Western Hemisphere. Mission Life International believes no woman or baby should die during childbirth. Nearly all maternal and infant deaths in Haiti are preventable with access to a skilled birth attendant. Our mission is to increase access to skilled maternal care along with skilled chiropractic care. Our programs are designed to educate and empower women.
Maternal health refers to the health of women during pregnancy, childbirth, and the postnatal period. Each stage should be a positive experience, ensuring women and their babies reach their full potential for health and well-being.
The most common direct causes of maternal injury and death are excessive blood loss, infection, high blood pressure, unsafe abortion, and obstructed labor, as well as indirect causes such as anemia, malaria, and heart disease. Most maternal deaths are preventable with timely management by a skilled health professional working in a supportive environment.
This proposal addresses the most important issues of the health environment of the community of Ouanaminthe, Haiti. It is also an effort to propose to its inhabitants’ new services, including chiropractic and chiropractic lifestyle education, as it relates to community-oriented maternal health. We propose that this will solve some of the deficiencies that affect the community.
Ouanaminthe has a very precarious health system. It is mostly private, unfocused, and unaffordable to the average inhabitant. Therefore, there is a high rate of maternal and infant mortality, lower life expectancy in the region, little access to health services for women. This proposal is intended to set up a Maternal-community-oriented health center, which provides an accessible, efficient and quality alternative so that patients can have access to it, at a reasonable (or no cost), a short waiting period and a better outcome.
We are planning to provide a safe place for Haitian women to receive compassionate and respectful care at the hands of skilled midwives and chiropractors. No one will be turned away. We anticipate that every morning 50 women will start their day waiting to be seen by the midwives. Women will be entering (in labor) to our sanctuary and safety to have their babies. With the help of the members of the__________________________, we would like the clinic name to be the MLI_________________________ Birthing and Chiropractic center.
Note: The site of this building is on our Mission Life International Village of Hope property. We have 4 other buildings on this property. A building that houses our chiropractic orphanage. A kitchen building with a large kitchen on the ground floor and 4 rooms with bathrooms upstairs. Our gazebo restaurant, a new building that is being constructed, will have the capacity to host 100 people.
SERVICES TO BE OFFERED
Along with chiropractic, prenatal and postnatal care, the Birthing Center will be also a “Women’s and baby’s Health and Teaching Center,” providing educational classes. Mainly, we want healthy mothers and babies. Poor mothers visiting us will leave with a better understanding of life and health.:
Family planning: it is better to have fewer children who are healthy than a lot of children who have malnutrition.
Birth control: Provide safe and sustainable birth control. However, there are strict guidelines from the Government of Haiti that we must follow.
Prenatal vitamins: they will receive authentic prenatal vitamin to help their baby get the nutrients needed for healthy development.
Breastfeeding support: Offer structured programs of supporting breastfeeding in stages pre and postnatal.
Good hygiene: How to take care of themselves before, after, and during pregnancy and How to care for their newborns as they develop.
Chiropractic Care and education in the chiropractic lifestyle.
We have already invested over $80,000 US in the creation of our Birthing and Chiropractic Center building. Donations came from
Life University $20,000
New Beginnings $10,000
Ryan Cecil $5,000
$10,000 from multiple individuals

Rental of the premises will be at no cost because we own the premises.

WAYS TO CONTRIBUTE:
LCW Members can be asked to donate $25, 50, or 75 a month. Anyone who donates $100 or more a month would be welcome on one of our chiropractic mission trips for free. This includes room and board at the Codevi Hotel (or they can stay at our orphanage). Or they can plan a trip to Haiti, on their own, and stay at the orphanage and volunteer at the health and birthing center and witness firsthand, the miracle that has been created.
