LIFEinDEED works closely with a Respire Christian School in Grassier, Haiti. Respire is a non-profit organization that provides education to local children that are routinely used as house-slaves (Restaveks).
The school (shown below) serves over 400 students in the local community that would not otherwise have an opportunity for an education. Respire also employs over 100 teachers and staff at the school from the local community!
LifeinDeed partners with Respire to provide medical care to students, their families and all Respire employees. Because we see the same people each trip, we are able to provide continuity of care which benefits the patients long term.
Missionary team members include doctors, nurses, physical therapists and other non-medical personnel.
