I visited Healing Hands for Haiti in October, 2010, I was amazed by the work the volunteers and staff were doing in Haiti. I am a Haitian American and was trully moved by the difference that they are making in the country. Haiti is in huge need of rehabilitation and medical help so Healing Hands for Haiti plays an important role in the country.
I visited the HHH campus in April 2009 (several months before the earthquake) and was blown away by the facilities and staff. It was clear to me that HHH is truly making a difference in Haiti where there is a huge need for rehab of amputees as well as others with disabilities. I also visited the central hospital in Port-au-Prince, where I witnessed firsthand the fruits of a vital partnership HHH has with a group of doctors from the University of Miami. The doctors were the only ones in the country at the time how were performing surgeries on children with encephalitis and literally saving their lives. HHH is also extremely well run and its operations are efficient. They employ high-caliber local professionals and attract volunteers far and wide, hosting them comfortably in a guest house that boasts a world-class kitchen staff.
After the earthquake in Haiti I was looking for a charitable organization where my contribution would have more significant impact and benefit. I did not want to just send money to the Red Cross, etc. After reading about Healing Hands for Haiti on their website, I was convinced that this was truly an outstanding organization that was making important contributions to the lives of individual Haitians, and I am very happy that I supported their cause.
I recenlty returned from spending 9 days in Haiti (Oct. 2010) This was my second trip with Healing Hands. Healing Hands was well organized with great assignments, secure housing and awesome food. This organization is well run in helping Haiti. I will go again to volunteer with this group.
I spent 9 days in Port-au-Prince with Healing Hands (HHH) in 2007. Everything about my experience was positive - from travel to my service to building relationships with resident and volunteers who enthusiastically serve both disabled clients needing prosthetic applicances and students and staff striving to learn and improve their lives. The goal is for to provide independence and local self-sustaining growth. HHH also works with orphanages to improve the care and well-being of countless disabled children. HHH has enabled change and provided hope for many years. The hard work that led to a well-respected and staffed clinic must not stop. The entire campus was destroyed during the earthquake, donations are needed to rebuild the clinic and the hospital that was ready for ground-breaking at the time of the earthquake. Donations are used wisely and frugally, leveraged with great dedication and sacrifice on the part of both native and global volunteers and staff. The organization's size and culture enables real change and healing.
Volunteers and staff for Healing Hands for Haiti have been there for years. The work they have done to give medical care to the people of Haiti was little known until the devastating earthquake last January. Although their hospital compound was destroyed, they continue their work in Port-au-Prince while the compound is being rebuilt. They are committed to serving and to rebuilding. I appreciate the fact that all money I donate goes toward that goal and will continue to support their mission.
Healing Hands for Haiti is a very impressive organization with a tireless work reaching out to the people there. I've donated before and will again as their projects will make a lasting effect for generations to come. The master plan and progress reports are amazing! With Warm Regards, Sheridan C
Healing Hand for Haiti provides medical care and artificial limbs for people who cannot afford them. It is a small organization that is efficiently run by an almost all volunteer staff. They do great work and deserve your support.
I worked alongside Healing Hands for Haiti while I was there this year. I was immensely impressed with their professionalism, courtesy, enthusiasm, and dedication to every patient who was treated. It made my experience more worthwhile, and I will be forever thankful for having worked next to such fantastic individuals!
