Join Urban Mission as we continue to serve alongside our global partners and further build our bond with this beautiful community. Urban Mission has traveled to Haiti since 2010, providing access to health care and education through mobile clinics in areas where it is limited or difficult to obtain.
Urban Mission has hosted medical mobile clinics in Haiti since the 2010 earthquake. Haiti has made some strides toward recovery in the last few years, but health care access remains an overwhelming need.
Our global trips focus on hosting mobile clinics in rural areas where access to health care services are extremely difficult to obtain. Our team serves a high patient load in Haiti that reside within the rural mountain regions of Haiti. We partner with local organizations, schools, and medical professionals to provide health care services and education that improve the health and quality of life in underserved communities.
All volunteers arriving/departing from Cap Haitien Airport in Haiti on the days of the trip are picked up and dropped off at the airport by our ground team. You will receive specific information regarding your travel agenda, team meetings, and schedule upon becoming an official member of the team.
