Ministry in Gandou, Haiti

St. Anthony Catholic Parish in Morris, IN and St. Louis Catholic Parish in
​Batesville, IN are co-twinning with their sister parish, St. Francis Xavier
​Catholic Parish in Gandou, a rural area in the mountains of south-central
​Haiti. Since January 2006 for St. Anthony Catholic Parish and June 2015
​for St. Louis Catholic Parish, they have been helping to provide medical
​care for the people of Gandou, Haiti. There are around 10,000 people
​living in the area. The area is very remote and the people have very little access to medical care. The nearest doctor is a five-hour walk and the nearest hospital is a six-hour walk. It is very difficult for sick patients to reach care. Many people in the area suffer needlessly, and some even die, from easily treatable conditions.
