Due to the inaccessibility and economic marginalization of the rural community of Franco Bidó, medical attention is often lacking. Our community health clinic, the St. Gregory Assistance Center, helps bridge the gap by providing medicine, basic nursing care, and referrals for 400 families in the area. Of particular value is care for Haitian migrant workers who otherwise may face medical discrimination.
