Northeastern Wisconsin residents are on a mission to provide care in Haiti and Honduras during the coming months. The first is a mission trip set for Feb. 15-25 to provide free dental care to a remote region of central Haiti called Los Cacaos.
Dr. Paul Feit of Dentistry by Design and Dr. Scott Zak of Shore-line Legacy Dental in Manitowoc will join Dr. Chris Hansen of Two Rivers Family Dental and many other missionaries. Hansen organized this trip in conjunction with the Catholic Foundation for the Diocese of Green Bay, Sister Maria Marciano Projects. This is both Hansen’s and Feit’s second trip to Los Cacaos.
During their inaugural visit in 2018, they were able to finish setting up a dental clinic, stock it with donated supplies and provide much-needed dental care to more than 300 people. This year they’ll add two more dental chairs and a suction system.
The second mission trip is planned for March 16-24 to Ahuas, Honduras. This trip will focus on providing free dental care and food through the Infant Feeding Program. Organized by in-country mission coordinator Rick Nelson, Feit, and Katie Bennett, Dentistry by Design’s clinical director, the trip will take 18 missionaries to Ahuas, where the dental team will provide free care in the Ahuas dental clinic.
Donations to support this mission can be made to the Sturgeon Bay Moravian Church. Write “Honduras” in the memo section of your check. To learn more about Sister Maria Marciano Projects and the Catholic Foundation for the Diocese of Green Bay, visit sistermariahaiti.com and catholicfoundationgb.org.
