United Nations DPI NGO Working Together – Making a Difference
Department of Public Information Non Governmental Organizations
Dear Chiropractic Colleagues,
Dr. Morgan and I just returned from Ouanaminthe, Haiti, the site of Mission Life International’s orphanage. This orphanage is 100% supported by chiropractors and their families and friends. The orphanage currently houses 20 children as well as support staff. We also provide schooling for 50 other children from the area. The school is across the street on a piece of property donated to us. It is a covered outdoor structure with benches, desks, and black boards.
On Thursday we visited the United Nations military base, located approximately 15 minutes from our orphanage. There are 360 troops in the barracks, with trucks and a lot of rifles. The base is operated and manned with troops from Uruguay.
As UN representatives, we felt it would be good to meet with the commander of the base and inform them of our chiropractic mission work in Haiti. We were greeted by Col. Raul Passarino, who had received chiropractic care back in Uruguay, and was very happy to meet us. Fortunately, we had brought our Astralite portable adjusting table. We set it up and adjusted the commander and the captain of the base. The power of the adjustments superseded any conversation we previously had. We then agreed to adjust all the troops on our next mission trip this June. He then offered for all our chiropractic missionaries to stay on the base during our few days in Haiti.
We also visited a clothing factory compound, called CODEVI, that employs over 7,000 Haitians, and is located on the border of Haiti and the Dominican Republic. They make the clothing for Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, Hanes, and many others. Each building had 1,500 people working on sewing machines. It was an impressive operation: clean, organized, and seemingly very productive.
We met with the administrator of the factory, Cristian Capellan. We discussed the possibility of adjusting all 7,000 employees, as well as introducing Straighten Up Haiti to the workers. Once again we pulled out our table and adjusted about 10 executives of the facility. After that, all doors opened. We toured the factory and figured out the logistics of adjusting all the people in one or two days.
Dr. Morgan’s Chiromissions is offering a discounted rate for the upcoming June trip to Haiti. We hope to have 100 doctors and students there to achieve this monumental task.
The factory keeps very accurate production statistics. After the adjustments, we are going to look closely at production changes, and will publish this data in the near future.

On January 12, 2010, the lives of millions of people changed because of the earthquake in Haiti. Children came home from school to find that their whole family had been taken from them. With no one to care for them, many of these children have been roaming the streets and sleeping in dirt.
Dr. Morgan and a few Chiropractors cared enough to go to Haiti and rescue a small group of these children.
These children were moved to Ounaminthe, Haiti, where over the last three years, through the generosity of chiropractors, patients, and family, Dr. Morgan has taken these children from the dirt to a safe, nurturing, happy environment. These children now have a chance to become responsible, educated teenagers and adults.
We need your help to continue caring for these children and to help more children.
No contribution is too small.
Thank you all for reading this. When you come on a trip, you will see why we must help these children.
