SBHF's second Mobile Clinic team did its first clinic in the town of Gros Marin, in the mountains of Cavaillon north east of Les Cayes on December 21, 2016. Adding a second mobile clinic team greatly expands SBHF's ability to reach more people in the areas hardest hit by the hurricane.
During the first day of the mobile clinic in Cavaillon, the team saw 157 patients, most of whom had not received any medical care since before the hurricane.
We are rejoicing for your presence that shows us our prayers have been answered. I want to thank you for displacing your team to come care for and remember the people of Gros Marin.

On that same day, SBHF's original Mobile Clinic team saw 207 patients in the town of Sable, in Tiburon on the far west coast.
Both teams were back in the field the next day, in new communities, seeing even more patients.
