At Hope for Haiti, we believe healthcare is a human right. Driven by this belief, we run an Infirmary that provides access to health and dental care for 15,000 patients every year, we hire and train local Community Health Workers who provide health education and treatment for children, parents and grandparents, and we run mobile clinics in rural communities throughout southern Haiti. For many patients, a Hope for Haiti Mobile Clinic is their only way to access medical care, either due to the difficulty in traveling to a government hospital in a major city, or more often, due to the insurmountable costs of seeing a doctor. Mrs. Soinette Gurville, a new patient at the Mobile Clinic in St. Michel on June 8, concurs: “I’m so thankful for this mobile clinic because I feel much too sick to travel to the government hospital in Aquin.” Read more

This week, we are raising $5,000 to purchase and ship a new dental compressor to support our work. Read more
