HarvestCall provides financial, material and sometimes work team support to various medical clinics.
Bethel Clinic of Dumay
During the 1970's, a small, two room clinic was established near Dumay in Haiti to help meet the medical needs of those in the community. This practice continued and interest grew until more money could be raised to build a larger facility beginning in 1995. The new building resides near the Bethel Church in Dumay and was dedicated in 2000.
The clinic now consists of several exam rooms, a waiting room for patients, and storage facilities for medical devices and supplies, such as medications. Currently, a group of doctors from Tallahassee, Florida travel to Dumay at least once every 2 months to hold a week-long clinic. These doctors volunteer their time and often bring additional medications with them when possible.
If you are interested in making a donation in support of the Dumay medical clinic, or if you are interested in joining a Lifeline work team traveling to Dumay, please contact HarvestCall or the Lifeline Board.
RGMMI Clinic in Naski
RGMMI has offered medical services for many years, beginning with a small clinic on the main campus in Nashik. Providing medical services is another example of how God’s word can be introduced in countries where very few people hear about Jesus and God’s wonderful plan of salvation and the hope of eternal life in heaven.
In 2010, with the help of many generous donations, including support from HarvestCall (known as World Relief at the time), RGMMI upgraded the clinic to a small hospital. The name of the Daya Hospital comes from the Hindi word for compassion (daya). It seemed a concise way to reflect the love of Christ as medical services were offered to the residents of Nashik. The hospital is located at the front of the Nashik compound along a very busy street. In a large waiting hall, patients are greeted by RGMMI staff. Examining and treatment rooms are available for the needy patients that come each day, as well as two small rooms for anyone needing additional medical attention. A physician is available as well as nurse and two orderlies. In recent months a part-time physician is available each weekday evening to receive patients. All these personnel help carry out he work of ministering to the needs by sharing empathy toward the suffering in the community. Scriptures are read at regular daily intervals and the staff/patient interactions provide an opportunity to share the gospel. Encouraging moments occur when former patients begin attending services and come to the saving knowledge of why Jesus came to live on this earth.
