Serve with Family Health Ministries

Family Health Ministries welcomes mission teams with loving and caring hearts and a desire to provide medical, construction and educational (including Vacation Bible School) support in Haiti. FHM began mission travel in 2000 to assist US physicians, nurses, and non-medical professionals who wanted to volunteer in Haiti for short-term medical mission trips. Each year, FHM manages 4-6 mission teams of 12-15 people. Our volunteers serve in the FHM clinics in the Port-au-Prince area as well as Leogane, and the orphanage and school in Fondwa.

 

FHM welcomes both individual volunteers as well as mission travel groups from churches across the United States. FHM will work with you to:

  • Match your interests, abilities, and time frame with an FHM mission team
  • Provide orientation and spiritual resources before and during the assignment
  • Arrange international travel schedules, provide guidelines for mission travel, and provide instruction on airline ticketing
  • Provide guidance with necessary visas, passports, permits, and other travel requirements
  • Coordinate lodging and transportation in Haiti
  • Appoint an experienced Mission Team Leader to travel with you, to coordinate mission team itinerary and serve as cultural advisor

These and other crucial details of the short-term experience are all handled with care by our staff.
