A graduate of Pace University and New York College of Chiropractic, Mission Chiropractic Founder Peter Morgan, DC, has led dozens of chiropractic humanitarian missions to developing nations but, this month, he will lead the largest chiropractic mission trip to Haiti in the group's history. More than 50 DCs will join him in bringing chiropractic care to Haiti.
Since the devastating 2010 earthquake, Mission Chiropractic has been able to feed 100 children daily and give a home to 20 orphans. On January 11, 2010, the day after a mission trip to Haiti, the small island nation had been hit with the worst earthquake in 200 years. Mission Chiropractic's team of 20 returned to Port Au Prince and started feeding and adjusting thousands. They took in many children and Mission Life International became licensed as an orphanage.
Mission Life International is a 501(C)3- registered charitable organization in the United States and a registered non-profit in the Dominican Republic and Haiti. Since January 2010, they have had 18 chiropractic mission trips to Haiti and 12 trips to the Dominican Republic.
The group intends to bring computers to schools, generate donations of food from large supermarket chains, and help with waste management projects. They hope to send several sanitation trucks and ambulances to the Dominican Republic and Haiti and have opened a Mission Life International mission office with a staff worker in Puerta Plata, Dominican Republic. With his own money, Dr. Morgan paid for the lease of the house for the orphanage, 25 bunk beds, and the mission office. He is currently looking for and getting help from others.
The group is also in the process of getting sponsors from major corporations. They are asking others to join them on future chiropractic mission trips or to support them with donations. See http://www.missionlifeinternational.com for information on how you can help.
