Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Children & Youth, Community Health Systems, Food, Health, International, International Development, Nutrition, Youth Development Programs

Mission: Our mission is accomplished in several ways: * A continuing commitment to rural communities by establishing and funding sustainable programs; * Training of Haitian physicians, nurses and allied health professionals; and * Providing technology, supplies and equipment to our clinic in Thomonde and other affiliated programs throughout Haiti. Our experience has taught us several important lessons. In order to succeed in an environment such as Haiti, partnerships with community-based organizations and other committed local partners is essential. "Top down" externally imposed programs will not succeed and improving health can not be addressed without also addressing it's social, cultural and economic context. Finally, programs must be culturally acceptable, utilize realistic technologies and be cost effective.

I am a 9th grade student at Watkinson School in West Hartford, Connecticut. I have spent a good week reading reviews all over the internet, exploring every single aspect of the Project Medishare page, and written a review with my partner. The review includes my interpretation of Project Medishare's environmental, social, and economic connections to Haiti. I find this organization to be legit and helpful. The volunteers are selfless and skilled, they work closely with the Haitian community and their number one focus is their jobs.

Project Medishare has been one of the most important organizations involved in earthquake relief efforts in Haiti. They had the first group of foreign doctors on the ground the day after the earthquake and set up a first rate trauma hospital at the airport which is still in operation today. Project Medishare's decades of experience and relationships working in Haiti positioned them well to work closely with Haitian ministry of health to coordinate efforts. These heroic doctors and nurses are still working hard in Haiti today and will be there long after all the cameras have gone home. They deserve your support.
