Medical 
One of the programs that OIH provides on mission trips to Bombardopolis is medical.  OIH solely depends on volunteers, i.e. doctors, nurses and medical assistants, and donations of supplies, i.e. bandages, anti-bacterial ointments and inflammatory medicines, to provide this service to those who cannot afford even the basic medical care.  Around 60% of people living in Haiti, mostly in rural places, do not have access to basic health-care.

    Debra (left), a nurse,  was one of the volunteers 
    from Michigan to participate in the medical care
    program.   The    boy   (right)   had    significant
    infections  on  his  legs  and  feet  that  could've
    been prevented with basic medicine. 
 Despite of
    the  severity  of  his condition, the  boy  did  not
    once    complain     but    was    very    thankful. 
    Volunteers provided  a pair  of socks, which he   
    owned none,  for
the boy to keep his feet  clean
    after  treatment  was performed.  He  was  seen
    the  following  day  and  was  given   more  anti-
    bacterial  ointment  for  his  wounds
.
