Albright is committed to provide funds needed to carry out projects in partnership with the church in Gens de Nantes:
- Build a fenced enclosure for the AEM Housing Facility to provide added security and privacy for housing and utilities on the property. This complex is home to various clinic staff, Haitian medical students, short term clinic workers, visiting missionaries, and also serves as guest housing for AEM leadership when they are present in the community. The housing facility remains a vital part of ministry continuing through the clinic and the church in Gens de Nantes.
- Upgrade generator with an inverter charge system for batteries so that the batteries can be used to operate the clinic lights when the generator is not running. This project will allow the clinic to use its generator to a greater capacity.
- Construction of 9 homes that are termite, hurricane and earthquake resistant
- Medical Clinic wired for electricity
- Latrines for the community
- Retaining wall built to secure the unstable ground in the courtyard playground of the church and school
- Completed repairs to the school roof
- Repairs and renovations to the guesthouse providing a safe and sanitary home for EMCC Missionaries and short-term mission teams
- Built a security wall around the clinic complex to ensure privacy and safety for all who use the clinic (both staff and patients)
