I very rarely give recommendations. I can wholeheartedly recommend supporting Real Hope For Haiti. Not a penny is wasted... and I can not say enough about the fantastic work these ladies do. They are the epitome of humble selfless service. I have interacted with them indirectly for ~ 2 years in Haiti, and recently visited them for a week of service. I will unreservedly continue to support them with donations and continue to serve with them every chance I possibly can. I strongly encourage you to do the same!
My daughter works for the CDC and came across this ministry on a work related visit several years ago. She vouched to me for their work. Since then I have been so impressed by their work and dedication. Haiti is the poorest country in the world. Donations for RHFH are well used
I have only the greatest respect for Real Hope for Haiti. It is amazing what they can do with facilities they have to work with. When I am in Haiti I hear stories about children and adults that have been turned away from other medical facilities, but RHFH goes above and beyond... always willing to help.
I am always amazed at how much RHFH accomplishes on so little. When I have been there, I have seen with my own eyes how far pennies get stretched and the awesome community services they provide. The Zachary family is loved and respected and protected by the people they came to serve. They are truly the hands and feet of Jesus.
If you want to go to a place that shows the true meaning of " helping the least of these" then this is the place. With minimal help this Clinic transforms the sick and starving into healthy happy children. Licia and Lori are really performing God's miracles. To help out for a week there will transform your life.
The clinic, baby ICU and children's care at RHFH goes on in a small compound about the size of 1/4 of a city block. But what big work they do! All the staff is loving and caring (and disciplining:) to the children. The clinic staff was smiling and helpful even to one who knows so littleHaitian Creole. Lori and Licia, their families, the teachers, the Burnetts are a wonderful FAMILY serving the Lord.
Newest exciting news is the building of a cholera clinic, rescue center,clinic, workers' quarters has begun! May God bless RHFH with qualified workers to fill the needs of this building work. I continue to sew all-in-one diapers for the rescue center , and also sew hospital gowns for persons in the cholera house.
Volunteering at RHFH was the single most enjoyable, crazy, challenging, shell-shocking, and emotionally moving experience of my life. It has literally changed my life. Through the Zacharys, God works amazing miracles every day in Cazale!
I've known the Zachary family since they all went to Haiti. Only last Apr/May did I spend 10 days there at the mission. The presence of Christ can be felt as one sees the people line up, even the night before, clinic opens, to get help. The 65 or more children in the Rescue center are loved and helped in many ways. Some need care for other reasons, but most have great malnutrition helped by the Medika Mamba(protein formula). Some of the earthquake victims were still being cared for in Lori's new/unoccupied home. What a blessing to see the planting program going on in the community program/ soil erosion deterred by the planting of vetiver grass,etc. The donated corn program began while I was there. Now look at the blog for results.
Absolutely amazing organization. Extraordinary accountability, visible presence and consistent follow-through.
