In June, the Chikungunya virus was sweeping the country of Haiti. The only treatment is to help alleviate the symptoms. Acetaminophen had disappeared or was being sold at exorbitant prices. JUST MERCY sent out the word in Joplin, MO, and within a week, a large suitcase full of acetaminophen and other medicines were collected in Joplin, MO, and taken into Haiti the next week by Jesse Montgomery and Cody Moore. Some were sent to the mountains with Dr. Jolius and the rest went to Ile a Vache to help the people there. The sawmill was producing boards for many projects and badly needed chairs are being built! Besides the needed medicines for Chikungunya, people come daily for first aid with injuries of various sorts. We continue to serve and seek to share God\'s love with the people of Haiti.
