Continuing Promise 2022 (CP 22) personnel returned to Wharf de Jeremie December 14 to continue providing medical care following a one-day pause in operations to re-plan the mission to ensure we provide the best care to the great people of Haiti.
Medical providers will continue their efforts providing high-quality adult, pediatric, optometry, and dental care to those in need in Haiti.
“We had to take a short pause in our operations to ensure the safety of our personnel, but it’s important that we get back out there and continue our promise to the people of Haiti,” said Captain Bryan Carmichael, commander of Amphibious Squadron Four and mission commander for Continuing Promise 2022. “We’ve developed a plan that gets our medical providers to and from the ship safely, and provides the people of Haiti with the care they need.”
The USNS Comfort is underway in the vicinity of Jeremie, Haiti, for its fifth and final mission stop of CP 22.
Medical services will be provided at Wharf de Jeremie from December 14-16. A large donation of medical supplies will also be made before Comfort departs Haiti on December 17.
Since its inaugural mission in 2007, Continuing Promise missions have treated more than 582,000 patients and conducted over 7,000 surgeries in the region. Comfort’s current mission is the 12th Continuing Promise mission conducted in the Caribbean, Central and South America.
