I visited the HHH campus in April 2009 (several months before the earthquake) and was blown away by the facilities and staff. It was clear to me that HHH is truly making a difference in Haiti where there is a huge need for rehab of amputees as well as others with disabilities. I also visited the central hospital in Port-au-Prince, where I witnessed firsthand the fruits of a vital partnership HHH has with a group of doctors from the University of Miami. The doctors were the only ones in the country at the time how were performing surgeries on children with encephalitis and literally saving their lives. HHH is also extremely well run and its operations are efficient. They employ high-caliber local professionals and attract volunteers far and wide, hosting them comfortably in a guest house that boasts a world-class kitchen staff.

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

knowing that the friend whose position I help to subsidize is engaged in a good cause and has a means of support.

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

help it to form more partnerships with local and international organizations.

After the earthquake in Haiti I was looking for a charitable organization where my contribution would have more significant impact and benefit. I did not want to just send money to the Red Cross, etc. After reading about Healing Hands for Haiti on their website, I was convinced that this was truly an outstanding organization that was making important contributions to the lives of individual Haitians, and I am very happy that I supported their cause.

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

viewing their website. They are doing great work.

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

have no suggestion. They are doing great work.

Volunteers and staff for Healing Hands for Haiti have been there for years. The work they have done to give medical care to the people of Haiti was little known until the devastating earthquake last January. Although their hospital compound was destroyed, they continue their work in Port-au-Prince while the compound is being rebuilt. They are committed to serving and to rebuilding. I appreciate the fact that all money I donate goes toward that goal and will continue to support their mission.

Appreciation for my donation and updates on their progress.

Healing Hand for Haiti provides medical care and artificial limbs for people who cannot afford them. It is a small organization that is efficiently run by an almost all volunteer staff. They do great work and deserve your support.

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

I've seen how they provided artificial limbs for people who lost arms and legs in the earthquake.

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

None

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 personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Have seen pictures taken in Haiti and talked to youth from my church who volunteered there.

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

Find a way to give them more money in my charitable giving to enable them to rebuild their rehab clinic sooner.

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.

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

I know the Director and have seen films of him and many others working with disabled Haitians.

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

Raise the profile of what they are doing.

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.

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

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

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

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