One hundred and seventy five clients received free medical attention at the Good Samaritan Inn (GSI) from medical doctors and students from Nova Southeastern University (NSU) who were on their seventeenth mission trip to the island to provide free medical care to the less fortunate.
The team of fifty multi-disciplinary medical professionals which included Dentists, Opticians, Orthodontists, Occupation Therapists, General Practitioners, Physical Therapists, Pharmacists and Health Counsellors, stopped by the Inn on June 5, 2017 and were pleased to provide medical services to clients in the new GSI Health Facility which was recently opened to the public for general use.
Medical Doctor and leader for the mission trip to Jamaica, Dr. Paula Anderson said she and members of her team which includes health professionals and volunteers continue to return to Jamaica on mission trips because it helps them to fulfill their purpose of giving service to mankind.
“It starts with a heart of service and when God blesses you, you can bless others,” said Dr. Anderson Wort with a smile. “God has blessed us with gifts and talents and this gives us an opportunity to serve the less fortunate.”
Dr. Anderson Wort had high commendation for the leadership of the Good Samaritan Inn which continues to facilitate her team giving back to the community.
“The GSI has welcomed us for the past six years and we have been able to make a significant contribution to the community and this is what helps us to give back and fulfill our purpose of service to mankind,” she said. “They are very welcoming and inviting and accommodative in helping us to provide that type of service.”
