Nativity and St. George’s have supported many vital programs at our twin parish in Haiti for more than 20 years. We support medical and dental clinics, water purification and sanitation programs, and simple hand washing stations. We provide direct financial support to the parish and school of St. Michael in Coq Chante, a microloan program, and a livestock program. This past April, the Haiti committee sent a shipment of 29 boxes containing medicines, school supplies, and other necessities.
The need in Haiti is overwhelming. The weekend of May 18 and 19th is our annual collection for this ministry. Please be as generous as possible.
On behalf of the community of St. Michael, thank you again for your years of generosity. It is truly life-changing and life-saving.

Healthcare at Our Twin Haitian Parish
POSTED: May 2, 2018
Currently, Nativity has only enough money to fund the clinic through the end of May. Please help the clinic continue to provide critical care to the people of Coq Chante. Please be as generous as possible again this year in the Haiti collection the weekend of May 19 and 20.Read More
Since 2003, Nativity of Our Lord and St. George’s have supported the medical clinic that provides healthcare access to all the people in the area of St. Michael the Archangel Parish in Coq Chante, Haiti. The medical clinic is open five days a week throughout the entire year and is staffed by a doctor, nurses, a pharmacist and a health aide. Approximately 400 patients a month receive medical exams and medicines.
The medical clinic is among the most important programs we support at our twin parish. Since its beginning, the clinic has greatly improved the health of the people of Coq Chante through health education, preventive measures and timely treatment
Having a community clinic ensures that the people of Coq Chante receive prompt care for malaria, typhoid, parasites, infections, burns and many other ailments. Without the clinic, people in need of treatment have to travel at least an hour only to discover that the care available might well be unaffordable.
On behalf of the people of St Michael, thank you for your generous support.
Nativity and St. George’s Haiti Committee work in partnership in numerous ways to provide livestock, school tuition, water purification, medical supplies, etc for our twin parish.
We are twinned with our sisters and brothers in Haiti in the parish of St. Michael the Archangel, Coq Chante. We are committed in support of St. Michael’s Parish, clinic, school, water project and basic necessities for families. Their physical needs are an opportunity for us to give and in return receive the grace-filled prayers and blessings of the poor.
