Twelve years ago, TriMedx volunteers responded to a plea by Sister Martha Barlai-Kovach of CRUDEM, relaying the urgent need for working medical equipment at Hôpital Sacré Coeur in Milot, Haiti. It was then, in 1999, that our mission of hope began. Without working medical equipment, mission hospitals like Hôpital Sacré Coeur lack the tools to perform some of the most basic life-saving procedures.
And so in 2004 the TriMedx Foundation was formed to meet this need around the world. Since then, TriMedx Foundation has been a primary resource to Hôpital Sacré Coeur in providing healthcare equipment, technology training and support.
In 2011, we’re launching monthly training trips to both Hôpital Sacré Coeur and St. Boniface Hospital in Haiti. Having impacted more than one million lives to date, our goal remains to equip poverty-stricken communities to safeguard the health of its families, long after we’re gone.
We invite you to celebrate with us by taking a moment to view a three-minute preview of “Angels of Milot: Haiti’s Aftershock” above–a PBS documentary highlighting the lives impacted at Hôpital Sacré Coeur. It is through support given to TriMedx Foundation that we are able to equip medical missions like Hôpital Sacré Coeur, ensuring lives are saved through vital medical equipment.
We thank you for your time and support, and wish you a blessed 2011.
