SKCDT is currently accepting donations for the ongoing Haiti medical missions which occur every February, April, June and October. You may donate to a specific program or make your donation in someone's name as a gift or in their memory.
Care is provided in rural dispensaries in the towns of Leon, Castillon and Abricot. The team will see upwards of 200 patients per day at the main Leon clinic that travel many miles by foot to obtain medical care.
A variety of medical specialists including nurses, medical laboratory scientists, physicians, physician assistants, paramedics and pharmacists work together to care for these individuals and help to identify those most in need.
Medications and patient referral resources for the Leon clinic are provided by St. Francis of Assisi parish, Derwood, MD.
SKCDT provides staffing, interpreters, medical supplies and a feeding program to support the clinic. Although we partner with St. Francis parish at the Leon clinic, the missions are strictly medical. There is no requirement for patients or volunteers to attend religious services or receive religious information as a condition of participation or care.
While providing ongoing work in Haiti, the Seattle-King County Disaster Team has also served on numerous deployments since 1985.
