As a donor and volunteer, I have traveled and worked in Les Plaines, Haiti with Health Ministries for Haiti. My donations are helping maintain the highest levels of physical and spiritual well-being for our Haitian brothers and sisters and bringing benefits of modern medical science to those most in need. Additionally, through Health Ministries for Haiti, I sponsor one child in Haiti by supporting his school fees and purchase of uniform each year in January. I choose to donate to Health Ministries for Haiti because I believe in their mission, leadership team, and have witnessed the impacts of their programs. The work of Health Ministries for Haiti is inspiring and truly life changing for the people of Haiti.

I feel very fortunate to be part of this wonderful non-profit. Everyone involved are dedicated professionals working extremely hard to improve Haiti as a country and the communities that we serve. The Haitian people are our neighbors, our friends, and our family. I look forward to continuing the work that we do in HMH and can't wait until I have the opportunity to go to Haiti again.

I encourage anyone reading this to donate to this wonderful organization to support this on-going work but, most of all, I encourage you to volunteer and work with us.

HMH has given me the chance to practice a new skill in my public health curriculum: grant-writing. Jen has been very supportive, both finding potential funders for me and following up on the work I've done. It's frustrating how difficult it's been to find funding to build a hospital in Haiti, but I suppose this just means more practice for me, as well as better insight into what the available pool of funders wants to fund these days.

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.
