Houston, Texas (PRWEB) June 24, 2014
Dr. Cindy Flanagan, DDS is pleased to announce she will be joining the Chapelwoods United Methodist Church during their trip to Haiti on July 9-17, 2014. The group will be doing mission work in conjunction with Haitian Methodist Church and Haitian Artisans for Peace International (HAPI).
Chapelwoods United Methodist Church has taken numerous mission pilgrimages to Haiti since the 2010 earthquake that devastated the country. While there they provide immediate assistance and work to build long-term solutions for the Haitian people. Dr. Flanagan and a colleague from Houston, Dr. Ron Rhea, DDS, will both be providing their dental expertise and performing services for those that need assistance.
“The trips are so rewarding,” says Dr. Flanagan. “It’s fulfilling to help a group like Haitian Artisans for Peace International that’s working to rebuild communities for the better.” Four years later there is still much to do to restore Haiti, and Chapelwoods United Methodist Church is one of the organizations that is changing lives by providing water, food, medical care and economic development.
