Clinics for Humanity outreach group Ecuador 2005
My first experience with humanitarian healthcare was as a student dental healthcare student under the auspicious of Jamaica Ministry of Health dental program.
During my senior year of training, I was given the opportunity to observed dentists and physicians of Humanitarian Medicine at work on the SS Her Majesty’s Hope medical ship. That experience left an indelible impression on my consciousness which coupled with my Christian background resulted in a burning desire to be involved in humanitarian medicine to help suffering humanity.
I immigrated to Canada and worked for many years but deep in my subconscious I always wanted to do more humanitarian endeavours, In March 2003, I was appointed Deputy Minister and Public Health Diplomat under the International parliament for Safety from 2003 to 2013. My portfolio is to help establish humanitarian health care facilities in developing countries. My dream to be more to be more involve was in humanitarian medicine was realized. I established the Clinics for Humanity™, which satisfied the need for my mission.
Clinics for Humanity mission is to provide traditional medicine and dental healthcare to under served people and to promote humanitarian values through education.
In the developed and developing world they are countless individuals who are suffering from health challenges due to poor diet, addictions and lifestyle related illness. There are also millions of people in war torn countries and individuals affected by natural disasters who are lacking basic nutrition, education and effective traditional healthcare and skills to reform their lives. My colleagues and I under the auspices of Clinics for humanity ™do whatever we can to help with suffering underserved people.
Since 2003 Clinics for Humanity™ has continually provided outreach to many underserved areas in south America and was very engaged in the Haiti disaster of 2010. Doctors under the auspices of Clinics for Humanity ™ provided disaster care for, stress, dehydration, various health issues, emergency dental extractions and training of individuals as village healthcare workers. We are still active in Haiti, Peru, and Ecuador. In Canada our group is active in providing counselling to at risk youth groups. Clinics for Humanity has instituted; safe, and simple, standardized traditional medicine treatment protocols for treatments of nutritional health, addictions, behavioral health and emergency dental care.
