D'Iberville Free Clinic Moves Into Donated Facility

Shortly after Katrina, several faith based groups converted an empty D'Iberville grocery store into a free medical clinic.

It was a very primitive set up. The building didn't have water or electricity, and blue tarps covered its walls.

Wednesday, the D'Iberville Free Clinic moved into a much more modern facility.

Volunteers turned a donated double-wide trailer into a medical complex with running water and electricity. Doctors should be able to provide improved care for the 75 patients a day who come to the clinic for help.

"What was done here nobody could have done it, because it was all volunteers, it was all donations," Clinic Manager Beverly Squibb said. "This is truly the Lord's clinic."

The D'Iberville Free Clinic is on Gorenflo Avenue.
