Health Care

We have an annual comprehensive healthcare mission to rural Jamaica during the first week of August. Over the past five years our missions have been concentrated in the Rural parish of St. Ann and centered at the Alexandria Community Health Center (The Alexandria Hospital). The hospital serves as our base from which we deliver healthcare services and distribute school supplies, food, clothing, agricultural products and medicine. During the mission week over 1200 persons receive dental services, pap smears, mammograms, wound care, school physicals, prosthetic services, eye examinations, and general curative and preventative serves from our professional team. In addition, we do educational seminars on preventative healthcare, STDs, healthy lifestyles, and other pertinent topics. Teams of individuals visit persons who are shut-ins and provide items for basic needs and medical care.

Our prosthetic team have donated approximately one million US dollars in prostheses to numerous amputees from all parishes of Jamaica free of cost. The prostheses missions are done throughout the year as they involve assessing and measurement initially, followed by the fabrication in the USA, and a return visits for fitting and therapy. The prostheses missions are sponsored mainly by our othodist, Mr. Carey Frounfelter and his team and are subsides by MBS and our volunteers. Last year we started a partnership with “The Association for Persons with Disability”, a government agency in Jamaica, to provide prostheses for their members at a subsidized cost. However, we have not been able to collect any payment of subsidies from them to date and are left with excessive cost to make many prostheses that are waiting to be distributed. We are committed to help those who need these limbs and continue to look for additional sponsors to pay for the limbs.

MBS’s eye care team have done two very successful missions to Jamaica in 2014 and 2015. Our team of volunteers is made up of Ophthalmologist, nurses, med students, anesthesiologist, and others from the USA, India, and Jamaica. The missions were done at the Mandeville Regional Hospital in Manchester. Four Hundred and fifty-three (453) cataract surgeries were done and many persons who were not able to see received their sight back. MBS partnered with the “Patel foundation for Global Initiatives” to provide all the lenses, equipment, supplies, accommodation and travel for the mission. Prescreening and follow up care was done locally. Another cataract clinic is scheduled for April 7-11, 2017 and 250 persons are expected to benefit. We have been contacted by another team that are willing to do additional eye surgeries in May 2017 and we are trying to get this trip organized and sponsored.

We are in the process of getting the approval from the Government of Jamaica for cardiovascular surgeries through sponsorship from “Heartbeat International” a non-profit organization in the USA that specializes in these surgeries.
