As a board member of Health Ministries for Haiti, Inc, (HMH), I have had first hand experience working with the people of Haiti to improve their health and way of life. HMH has been working in Haiti since 2006 and has impacted the lives of many individuals over the course of this time. Not only does our organization work directly with community health workers to treat the people of Haiti, but we learn from them and adjust our work to what the current needs may be for the communities; be it food distribution, water purification, or medication refills. I have learned so much about the people of Haiti, their resilience, and their modest appreciation for all that we do for them. The organization is well formulated to operate efficiently within the settings provided to us. The exposure I have had with HMH and Haiti has even lead me to find a young boy there, whom I fell in love with and am currently adopting!

Health Ministries for Haiti (HMH) is a nonprofit organization committed to making a difference by working closely with Haitians to attain the highest possible levels of physical and spiritual health. HMH was my first medical mission experience. This experience has had a profound impact on me and has taken over the way I think about and view things. Among the many things I experience, I actively participated in delivering health care to Haitians, developed knowledge and respect for the Haitian culture, language, and health practices, and developed an awareness of the social, economic and political factors in health and disease in Haiti. HMH is highly organized all the way from pre-trip planning to after the trip. I was continuously informed of plans and felt part of the team who was making a difference. I hope to make many more medical missions in the near future with this wonderful organization.

Health Ministries for Haiti was my first experience volunteering for a non-profit organization and I cannot even begin to describe the impact that it has made on me. I was completely immersed in the Haitian lifestyle for a full week and was able to learn so much about the culture. My health care skills were put to the test when we would daily go to different areas in Port Au Prince and create makeshift clinics for all Haitians and their families to attend. The Haitians would be lined up for hours, waiting for free treatment for their multiple medical conditions. HMH could not create such greatness if it were not for the generous and wonderful donors. I have been forever changed by my experience and plan to participate in and support the organization for many years.

Health Ministries for Haiti (HMH) is a wonderful organization devoted to providing Haitians much needed healthcare support. It takes hard work and dedication to offer voluntary services anywhere, much less outside the country. HMH is highly organized and takes a systematic approach to funding and operating their nonprofit organization in order to carry out the tasks at hand, including traveling to Haiti each year to monitor their efforts and to provide hands-on cares. I traveled with HMH last January to Port-au-Prince and the experience has truly changed my life. There is not a day that goes by that I don't think of Haiti nor the beautiful people I encountered there. HMH has caused me to catch "a bug" of volunteering as an RN and to hopefully travel again outside the U.S. to provide healthcare services again in my lifetime.

I very much appreciate the work Health Ministries for Haiti, Inc. is doing in Haiti. I haven't had the opportunity to volunteer with HMH, but the stories they share of the work they're doing and the lives they're impacting makes me feel like part of the team. I appreciate the fact that HMH is a small non-profit and that my donations are being applied directly to the work they do in Haiti. This work is so important to giving the people of Haiti needed access to healthcare while also supporting a sustainable healthcare infrastructure.
