St. Anthony's Catholic Church in Morris, IN has been helping to provide medical care for the people of Gandou, Haiti since January 2006. St. Anthony's Sister parish, St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church, is located in Gandou, a rural village in the mountains of south-central Haiti. There are 10,000 people living in the village and surrounding areas. The village is very remote and the people have very little access to medical care. The nearest doctor is a five-hour walk from the village 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.
