Amber Madison, R.N.
The Mission of the Danita’s Children Medical Center is to rescue, love and care for orphans and impoverished children by giving them the opportunity to live healthy lives. We consider it an humbling honor and great expression of the love of Christ, to be able to minister through the means of medicine. We are working to break the cycles of preventable illnesses and disease found within poverty and see an end to child mortality. The Medical Center presents an incredible opportunity for volunteer medical professionals to help carry out the vision of restoring the health of the children of Haiti. We are sincerly grateful for all who are willing to serve and be the hands and feet of Christ in our Medical Center and extend His hope and His healing.
