Participating Charities

Haitian Health Foundation

The Haitian Health Foundation is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization which provides healthcare, development, and the hope of a future to over 225,000 of the poorest people living in rural southwestern Haiti. These are people who live a day to day “survival” life – living in hovels cobbled together from thatch, scraps of tin, and banana leaf, unfit for human habitation. It is common to see children, rooting with animals through garbage dumps to find scraps of food. In some of the villages HHF serves, over 70% of children seeking care are malnourished. It is a sight to bring tears to the most hardened heart. Our appeal is for funding for our Feeding Program, which provides nutritious, protein-rich food to the most vulnerable under our umbrella – malnourished children and pregnant women. For three consecutive years, HHF has been awarded Charity Navigator’s highest designation – 4 stars – for excellent financial accountability and low overhead.

GOAL

Haitian Health Foundation (HHF) is requesting $4,000 to sponsor 8 women in high-risk pregnancies at the Center of Hope in Jeremie, Haiti. HHF has reduced the area’s maternal mortality rate by offering residential care during critical periods of a woman’s pregnancy. Many of these women come from villages that are 18 hours or more from hospital care, and would certainly be at serious risk of dying from complications during their pregnancies.

Medical Aid to Haiti

Medical Aid to Haiti, Inc. (MATH) is a Connecticut based, non-profit charitable organization with the following mission: Helping Haitians heal Haitians by providing needed resources for the care and treatment of their poor. MATH is seeking contributions for its recently established mobile medical clinic in Haiti. The mobile clinic and its Haitian staff operate in and around Port au Prince, Haiti on a regular basis to provide a desperately needed continuum of care. Please visit our website at www.medicalaidtohaiti.org. For additional information please contact Rick Thibadeau at (860) 521-8704, or Nancy Ryan at (860) 232-0255.

GOAL

Medical Aid to Haiti wants to expand the operation of the Mobile Clinic to five days a week to provide primary care services to four communities. MATH is requesting $4,992 to pay the annual salaries of one Haitian physician and three Haitian nurses.

Haitian Humanitarian Network

Haitian Humanitarian Network is a 501C3 nonprofit established in 2003 to provide basic health care and humanitarian aid to the poor and needy people in rural Haiti. HHN established and supports the Erline and Armelle clinic in Beaulieu as part of the primary mission to assist all those in need in Beaulieu and surrounding areas.

GOAL

Haitian Humanitarian Network (HHN) wants to provide solar electric power to our medical clinic for refrigeration for medicines, laboratory test equipment, lighting in the exam room, and a water pump to pump water from the cistern. Funding desired: $5,000.

Outreach to Haiti

Outreach to Haiti supports over 300 students with scholarships, allowing them to attend schools and universities and to receive medical care. Outreach runs a clinic that treats more than 1,500 people annually. It provides assistance to two orphanages, a nutrition and meal program, and a participates in home building and economic developement projects. For more than 20 years, Outreach has administered a twinning program that brings together parishes in Haiti with parishes and a high school in the United States. Please visit our website at www.outreachtohaiti.org.

GOAL

Outreach to Haiti hopes to receive $4,000 to fund the tuition and book costs for two students in post-secondary institutions in our Education Scholarship Program.

Operation Unisson Inc.

Camp Renmen Haiti is a summer health education and health promotion program for children in Haiti. Education in Haiti is not free and since more than half of Haitians live on less than a dollar a day, paying school fees are not an option to many. Due to this many children are not only lacking formal school education, but also skills and basic knowledge about keeping themselves and their communities healthy. Camp Renmen Haiti is providing free health education, teaching skills and creating the future health educators and health advocates of Blanchard, Haiti that will keep their community healthy.

GOAL

Operation Unisson Inc needs $4,000 to help fund a month-long Camp Renmen Haiti 2014, a health education and health promotion summer program for children ages 9-13. Expenses include school supplies, food and water, shirts, propane and diesel.
