Mission Accomplish


View from Mont Tranchant

 We have returned from a successful mission, November 2020, in the mountains of Mont Tranchant (Sharp Mountain), Haiti. We were graciously hosted by Fabienne Goutier, Executive Director of Fondation Louis and Gizou Lamothe (FLGL). We are proud to report that we have completed our second dental mission since our inception in 2018. Dr. Chantal Newsome, DDS, MPH with the assistance of Keith Newsome screened and treated numerous patients in a span of three days. The majority of the patients, young and old, suffered from acute and chronic dental diseases to severe life-threatening dental abscesses. Many requiring dental extractions. We are on track to return in January 2021 to continue the much needed dental services in the area. 

We strongly recommend and encourage medical and dental professionals in all specialties to join us and volunteer for our next mission trip. The need for healthcare is tremendous. Please contact us.

Upcoming Mission trip

 

 
We invite you to join us in our ongoing initiative to help decrease health disparities, particularly in communities where there are limited or non-existent dental services. IRSGINC will be partnering and collaborating with Organizasyon Santé Péyi Pam (OSPP) to provide much-needed dental services in the remote community of Nan Panyol, Haiti. Many of us have been affected by the COVID-19 Pandemic. Haiti has and is experiencing many challenges. We must not forget our underserved population. We rely on your support and sponsorship to ensure the success of our missions.
