HHF represents everything a non-profit organization should be. It has a clearly focused mission, uses resources effectively, and provides feedback to donors more thorough than any other organization I have been involved with. Most importantly, HHF is focused upon achieving results on an achievable scale. What I also really enjoy about HHF's policy is their apolitical stance and focus upon avoiding dependency. In summary, donating money here is an excellent choice that ensures people who are in need are given help and the opportunity to take care of themselves in the future.

Haitiian Health Foundation has been in my heart since my first trip to their clinic in Jeremie Haiti in 1999. A small group of us continue to work to help HHF with their mission for the poor of Jeremie. We personally see what a difference they make and the progress that has occured in Jeremie Haiti because of their presence there. Any money that goes to HHF is used for the good of the poor. They are committed to the people they serve and you too can help by supporting their Foundation.

There are special charities in the world. I have the pleasure of knowing a classmate of many moons ago who travels to Haiti every year... across the mountains to provide dental care...since Sandy, things have gotten a bit dicey. ... time to give what we can...

I began giving to this charity after my father died and left me a little pot of money. I wanted a portion of it to go to a legitimate charity so I began my search which ended in prayer. I asked God to show me what charity was doing good work and not wasting money. Then I put the tv on and there was a spot on EWTN that showed what the Lowneys do in Jeremie. I loved the humble beginings but I was still not convinced so I wrote down all my questions/concerns and sent an e-mail to Marilyn and she answered everything. Thus began a love affair with the Haitian Health Foundation and the Haitian people....that continues to this day. It is the real deal for sure and it's good for your heart. Even your cholesterol will improve! LOL. just kidding.

The Haitian Health Foundation is the "Real Deal". I've personally visited their USA home office and visited and stayed at their Jeremie Haiti facility. The work Dr. & Mrs Lowney and Marilyn do is the real thing. They hosted our group in Jeremie and showed us the homes, schools and medical facilities they had built and operate for many many years. Any donation of time or money to the Haitian Health Foundation will be well invested. I recommend to all my friends and family to consider donating to HHF

This organization is incredible! I had the honor of traveling to Jeremie with Dr. Lowney, Marilyn and a few other wonderful people. They have given their lives to better the people of Haiti and their enthusiasm, knowledge, dedication and level of care are truly unparalleled. I recently started sponsoring a family of five for $25/month. Every single penny, (YES!!) goes to the family. The village votes on the family most in need of the sponsorship. There are a few families nominated, based on their size, illness, need, etc and then their peers choose the family they think is best to receive the aid. I can't think of a better way to run such a program! I've had the chance to see first hand the effect this organization has had on over 200,000 lives in Jeremie and surround villages.. it's heart-warming, incredible and inspirational.

This charity is the REAL DEAL. This is where you can be SURE that your donations will be well spent. Hardly any overhead, almost all of the money you donate goes directly to helping the poor of Jeremie, Haiti. I have traveled to Jeremie about 12 times and have seen firsthand the good that is done through the Haitian Health Foundation. It is by far the largest employer of Haitians for the surrounding 75 miles and has improved the lives of hundreds of thousands through education, healthcare, construction, effort, and love.

I've been involved with the Haitian Health Foundation since 1996. I started sponsoring a $25/month Save-a-Family and then began to learn more about this outreach to the people of the Jeremie, Haiti area. The more i learned, the more impressed i became. They have an overhead of around 8 percent (the Save-a-Family program has zero overhead because it is run by volunteers here and in Haiti). HHF keeps receiving the highest designation (4 stars) from a charity watchdog, Charity Navigator. They invite sincere people to accompany them on their quarterly visits to Haiti and I was able to go in 2006 and actually meet the family that I had been sponsoring for ten years at that point. They were the same people that had been in the picture given to me when I first signed up. It was one of the most amazing experiences of my life! I now volunteer about 3 days a week to help maintain their database. I know firsthand that my donations are prudently used.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the many programs that they run, health-care, home building, goat distribution, small business start-ups, etc.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Encourage more people to become involved through volunteering in Haiti, spreading the word about this wonderful outreach and donating.

The people at HHF are some of the most caring and knowledgeable that I've spoken to, in relation to the plight of Haitians today. The work they do is incredibly important and they manage to continue to bring food, medicine and basic needs to some of the world's poorest and neediest people, despite the deepest recession in modern times. The goals of HHF are so important, and the drive of its entire staff is so strong that I've felt an urge to contribute whatever I can. This is not a charity that puts a great percentage of donation money or energy into advertising itself or pushing an agenda, so outside recognition, too, is crucial.
