Organisation founded to assist Haitians with medical and construction needs launches website
Published on March 25, 2014 Email To Friend    Print Version

TOLEDO, USA -- Dr Dave Bejot and Eric Messer founded Doctors & Engineers Expediting Advancements for Global Humanity (DEXA) in 2011 to help the people of Haiti with construction and medical needs. They are excited to announce they now have a website to help them attract volunteers and benefactors to the work.

During every trip to this struggling part of the world, Bejot and Messer encounter serious needs.

“We partnered to build an eye clinic and are now working to fully supply it with medicine and equipment,” said Bejot. “We want it to be as clean and well-run as any clinic in the US,” said Messer.

DEXA plans to build a health clinic to serve pregnant women, provide vaccinations, and treat people with AIDS. They also currently help the Claire Heureuse Hospital in the Artibonite Valley with their maintenance needs.

Bejot and Messer stress that, with the help of supporters, they are making a difference in the lives of many. They invite anyone with the desire to help to join in the work of their relatively young organization.

DEXA is a non-profit, tax-exempt charitable organization that uses onsite teams from the United States to help the people of Dessalines, Haiti.
