International Missionary Fellowship - About Us

The circumstances that led Tom Northen, the founder of International Missionary Fellowship, to start in 1972 what would become Hospital Evangelique in Bombardopolis were directed by Providence. Today we serve a population of about 50,000 in a remote area of Northwest Haiti. Haiti is notoriously poor and unsettled. Challenges in Bombardopolis include practical as well as spiritual. We endeavor to show the love of God as we meet basic needs for these folks in Jesus' name. For forty years we have been the only consistent source of healthcare in the area.

We now have a staff of physicians, nurses and ancillary personnel enabling us to provide quality healthcare. We see an average of 750 patients per month in office visits. We also have an extensive AIDS treatment program, as well as immunization programs and nutritional programs. Resources include a well stocked pharmacy, laboratory, radiology (X-ray and ultrasound), ambulance, and the capability to house 18 inpatients including pediatric. We also have a delivery room, and an operating room that is used infrequently (we would love to have more surgical teams joins us).

We see lives touched and changed through this work. The book of James encourages us to show the love of God in tangible ways, not in word only. It is our prayer that God use us to change the lives of the people of Bombardopolis through His love. We exist to do His will.
