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.

I have been to Haiti several times on medical missions but most recently with Haiti Clinic in Citie Soliel. Citie Soliel is one of the poorest slums in the world, with no running water, sanitation or electricity. The residents there have very little access to healthcare. Unlike many other missions to Haiti, Haiti Clinic is dedicated to providing a permanent clinic there with US physicians coming in only to support the Haitian providers who are there all of the time. As such, Haiti Clinic is able to provide better quality healthcare for the residents of Citie Soliel. Haiti Clinic sends teams to the clinic every two months or so to restock medicines and provide specialty care to help eradicate the many parasitic and infectious diseases endemic to the area. They have also established a prenatal and woman's clinic. All of the physicians here are volunteers and there is almost no "administrative overhead"...we pay our own way and provide for our own meals while there. Donations go predominantly to the running of the clinic.
