To improve access to health care for the impoverished people of Cite Soleil, Haiti.
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.
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.

Reviews for Haiti Clinic
Donations to the Haiti Clinic support work that I SEE being done. Co- workers regularly going to Haiti to participate at the clinic, spending their own time and money to work tirelessly for the cause. They spend days at home preparing for the trips of the doctors, nurses and others by collecting donated items, sorting them and preparing medication packets to distribute. They return with stories that make you cry, make you smile and make you grateful for the work the dedicated volunteers are doing. Every time Haiti makes it to the news, it is because some natural disaster has occurred right on top of the last one and you wonder how the people can survive. They have little, if any, government support. We here have alot of support when one of the disasters occurs and yet we think it is devastating. This little clinic helps the survivors in very real ways. They are truly a GREAT non profit!!!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
seeing photos of the people I work with upon their return from one of their "weekends in the Carribean". Hearing stories of their successes, failures, tears and smiles.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
make sure everyone knows this non profit exists and is actually DOING something to help the downtrodden of Haiti.
