In this presentation Chad Becker discusses the efforts of Medic Samiratan, which was established to offer medical support in Haiti for mission teams and the residents they served following the catastrophic earthquake in January 2010 which devastated the already impoverished Third World country.  Evolving from its founding objective, Medic Samaritan now enters into healthcare concentrated endeavors that facilitate access to shelter, education, and clean water within the rural mountainous communities of Beloc, Camatin, and Decouze, Haiti. The Medic Samaritan SEWing Sustainability model (Shelter, Education/Engagement, Water), focuses on empowering Haitians through projects that promote long-term, community health development and sustainability.
