  EARTHQUAKE PICTURES



GCF works in Southern Haiti, in the district of Les Cayes, a very populous and underserved rural area with some of the country's worst health indicators. GCF serves a catchment area of approximately 600,000 people through yearly health missions from the United States. It uses the local health system and collaborates with two local hospitals to provide supplemental surgical and preventive care to an average of 3,000 patients a year. From 1999 through 2010, the medical missions tendered to nearly 20,000 rural families. In addition, GCF has recently found it increasingly necessary to contribute to relief efforts in Haiti and did so for both earthquake rapid response period as well as the current Cholera Outbreak that is dangerously spreading across the country.

EARTHQUAKE RELIEF MISSION, January 2010, Port-au-Prince, Haiti

Within weeks of the devastating January 12, 2010 earthquake, in addition to operating the core Mobile Clinic, GCF rotated over 100 medical volunteers over a four weeks period, in Port-au-Prince and its surrounding town to offer much needed health and wound care to victims in tent cities and remote towns.
