Christmas Gifts for Haiti

Christmas Gifts for Haiti

Over the years many members and friends of First Church have found it rewarding to donate alternative gifts from their family to our mission partners in Haiti at Christmas.  For many years these gifts were bags with nursing supplies for the nursing students at CONASPEH (the National Spiritual Council of Churches of Haiti). This year, instead of our usual nursing supply kits, we will be collecting medication and supplies for the clinic at CONASPEH headquarters.  This clinic serves the staff and hundreds of students at College St. Andre and the other programs there in Port-au-Prince.

You may bring donations to the boxes in the office.  Gift cards will be available for you to send to someone as acknowledgment of your donation.  If you would prefer to make a cash donation, make your check out to “First Church of Christ” with “Haiti Supplies” in the memo line.  If you have questions, ask Mary Friedman or Mark Pohlman.

Here is a list of needed items for the clinic which was sent by the clinic nurse, Miss Fanor:

  • hydrocortisone cream
  • alcohol wipes
  • antibiotic cream
  • antacids
  • acetaminophen (Tylenol)
  • diabetic test kits
  • Ibuprofen
  • multivitamins (adults and children)
  • Iron tablets
  • bandaids,
  • bandages,
  • Gauze pads
  • Ace bandages
