Mission:

Haiti clinic is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that is dedicated to improving healthcare and health education in the impoverished nation of haiti since 2007. Our goal is to provide the resources necessary to utilize the vast knowledge and abilities of healthcare practitioners and other volunteers to impact the lives of some of the poorest people in the western hemisphere. This includes access to medications and physicians, basic necessities such as clean water and adequate nutrition, as well as education and sanitation to an underserved community where there is no running water, no electricity and no sewers. About 78% of haitians survive on less than 2 a day, and more than half them live in extreme poverty, less than 1 a day.

Results:

Our clinic is entirely staffed by Haitians including: a doctor, three nurses (one specializing in prenatal care), a pharmacy worker and a manager. Donated money is used to pay the Haitian staff and to provide all medications and supplies for the clinic. Our long range plans include strong educational and advocacy components aimed at improving the living conditions of the residents of Cite Soleil.

Target demographics:

Cite Soleil is a 3 square mile area in which 200,000 to 400,000 people live in conditions that would defy the imagination of most Americans. Most of the people that we treat at the clinic are young adults and children as most of the residents don't live past the age of 50.

Direct beneficiaries per year:

The clinic supports at least 15,000 to 20,000 visits per year for the people of Cite Soleil.
