Dr. RENAUD Gerve
Renaud Gerve grew up in the countryside that Haitiens call Mombin. The oldest of seven children, four brothers and two sisters.
I did my Primary school at ECole Dieu seul Maitre De Mombin Crochu, my secondary school at Nouveau college du Cap Haitian and graduated from Medical school at Universidad Technologica de Santiago ( UTESA ).
After graduating in the Dominican Republic, I came back to Haiti to do my social service to get my license. After attaining my license, I started with Mobile clinic. The reason why I started with mobile clinic, was in part due to something that happened with my grandmother. When I was younger she was not able to get care after we walked hours to the nearest hospital, only to find out that there were no doctors or nurses there. Often times, older people and children walk 3 or 4 hours to come to the town to seek health care. Many die of stroke. After my social services were done, I continued with the mobile clinic to decrease the totality of strokes.
As I did my Secondary school in Cap-Haitien in 2013 I came to my wife and classmates with the question - how we can help more patients? Because at night where we live in Fort St Michel the neighbors always came to my wife when they children were sick and needed to seek health care.
The Doctors and Nurses collaborated and we now have Pro Famille Clinique.
I am happily married to Roudelyne Mompremier.

My first mission trip to Haiti was in the summer of 2010, shortly after the earthquake.
I served on the board of another mission group for several years, and established a working relationship with Dr. Gerve through them. Eventually, I strengthened my relationship with Dr. Gerve, and joined the board of Pro-Famille Clinic.
Since then, I have been to Haiti several times with PFC. Some of the time, I was involved with maintenance and repairs on generators, pumps, and electrical service to the Cap-Haitian clinic. I have also enjoyed working with several teams, traveling to Mombin Crochu for participation in mobile clinics, with Dr. Gerve, across the countryside.
At times, I have also been able to work with a local church in Mombin, while planning for leadership and doctrinal training, VBS, and evangelism.
