This group has selflessly given hours upon hours to haiti - long before the earthquake, and even more since. They are dedicated to improving the level of care in haiti for disabled persons, especially in trying to bring back the services lost in the earthquake (that they had so carefully built over the years). They support the local economy, and volunteer above and beyond what I have ever personally witnessed in the nonprofit world. They are particularly adept at corraling resources, and know how to make lemonade from lemons.

I've volunteered with Healing Hands for 12-years and can't imagine my life without this work. The foundation has grown and matured over the years from the original 14-member team to now an International organizations with thousands of volunteers serving thousands of Haitian adults and children every year. I love the focus on education and training. We are senstive to Haitian culture and economic situation and fully support independance and self sufficiency. It has been an extremely rewarding experience in my life to donate my own personal time and money to this effort.

I have been volunteering with Healing Hands for over 9 years. I have been to haiti before and after the Quake. The organization is well organized and makes the trips run as smooth as possible in such a unorganized country as Haiti is. It is very rewarding to be able to go and help treat the people who need Prosthetic devices and care, being able to focus on the outcomes and your specific speciality, while HHH takes care of the housing, travel, and other arrangements. HHH is a great foundation providing a needed service to the disabled people of Haiti taking care of those professionals who chose to come and donate of there time and talents to help with the programs.

I am a reporter with a local newspaper in Utah and have spoken several times with different members of Healing Hands. I've been impressed with their passion for the work that they do and the regularity of it. The earthquake thrust Haiti into the spotlight for the rest of us, but these people were focused on Haiti long before that crisis.

I volunteered as a physical therapist with Healing Hands for Haiti (Boston based team) in April 2010. Given the post-quake situation, there were additional stressors for first-time volunteers/visitors to Haiti like me. From my first introduction to HHH via Frank Shirley (orthotist), I felt as though I was in capable hands with a team of experts who knew the landscape, understood the culture of the people, and were similarly committed to providing quality patient care. HHH not only helped me to feel safe as I traveled around the island but also feel welcomed. They care about the paid staff who they employ and appear to have the respect of locals. Their reach in Haiti is broad as is their heart.

The Great!

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

HHH continues to support patient care as the nation re-builds. The prosthetist and orthotist continue to make trips to Haiti to insure that patients are provided with the bracing and artificial limbs that were prescribed back in April. Their commitment, dedication, and professionalism are commendable!

I am happy to support Healing Hands for Haiti. Even before the earthquake, I knew that Haiti needed our help, since it is such a poverty stricken country... the worst in our area of the world. I know the Director of this organization, Eric Doubt, who is a man of integrity. They are a well structured and hard working group. I have seen films of their facilities and the faces of the people they are helping. I feel good about doing my part. Those of us who are in a position to help others, have an obligation to do so. If I was born into such a situation, I'd be grateful to Healing Hands for Haiti. They are making a difference.

In April, 2010 I went down to Haiti with a wonderful group of volunteers organized through HHH (Boston Chapter) and had one of the most exciting and rewarding experiences of my life. Gail Buck met us once we arrived. She was a gracious, energized host. She kept us organized, safe and welcome our entire stay. I think she is one of the most courageous people I have ever met.

When the earthquake happened in Haiti, I was like many others looking for a way to make a donation to a responsible charity where my gift would have an immediate impact. Some friends told me about Healing Hands for Haiti and when I checked them out, I found them to be one of the few organizations who were already "in country" and working there. In addition, they have an excellent record of low management expense. I felt my donation would make a difference through their organization. I continued to monitor their work in Haiti and have been moved to donate even more money to help them achieve their continuing goals.

The Great!

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

seeing their progress with the rebuilding of their hospital in Haiti.

find more ways to let people know the great work they are doing so that more money was funneled to them.
