If you want to go to a place that shows the true meaning of " helping the least of these" then this is the place. With minimal help this Clinic transforms the sick and starving into healthy happy children. Licia and Lori are really performing God's miracles. To help out for a week there will transform your life.

The clinic, baby ICU and children's care at RHFH goes on in a small compound about the size of 1/4 of a city block. But what big work they do! All the staff is loving and caring (and disciplining:) to the children. The clinic staff was smiling and helpful even to one who knows so littleHaitian Creole. Lori and Licia, their families, the teachers, the Burnetts are a wonderful FAMILY serving the Lord.

Volunteering at RHFH was the single most enjoyable, crazy, challenging, shell-shocking, and emotionally moving experience of my life. It has literally changed my life. Through the Zacharys, God works amazing miracles every day in Cazale!

I've known the Zachary family since they all went to Haiti. Only last Apr/May did I spend 10 days there at the mission. The presence of Christ can be felt as one sees the people line up, even the night before, clinic opens, to get help. The 65 or more children in the Rescue center are loved and helped in many ways. Some need care for other reasons, but most have great malnutrition helped by the Medika Mamba(protein formula). Some of the earthquake victims were still being cared for in Lori's new/unoccupied home. What a blessing to see the planting program going on in the community program/ soil erosion deterred by the planting of vetiver grass,etc. The donated corn program began while I was there. Now look at the blog for results.

The Great!

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

Now, I can see more than ever the need for prayer, and continued efforts in getting the supplies needed down there. I pray daily for each worker, and the local people. May God continue to bless and help get a bigger clinic/hospital built on purchased land away from the river and near the road as He wills and in His time.

I don't have any ideas to suggest for the organization. I just see a great display of God's love there and may it continue and grow!

I have never witnessed a group more compassionate about the people they serve. 24/7/365 this is their life...the real deal! Zach daily travels to collect/find ways to fill the needs of the Rescue Center and Clinic they operate. Licia finds more then 24 hours in each day! She has a passion for each child in the Rescue Center. She is genuine and truly cares. She has put her personal needs completely on the back burner to help someone in need. It may be holding the hand of a grandmother as she learns her grandchild may not survive, explaining to a mother of a nine month old who is expecting another child the importance of continuing breast feeding during her pregnancy, or even the way she cares for a child after he/she has lost its fight. Lori is filled with knowledge, yet she is so open to those around her to learn yet more. Lori manages the clinic. She treats people both medically and spiritually. She has formed a community group to aid the people of Cazale in bettering themselves and their community.

My first trip, Jan 2009, I witnessed the heart and soul of these ladies. One of the children in the RC fell ill and began suffering from seizures. Lori and Licia NEVER gave up! I saw them turn to the Lord for guidance and strength.

I would love to see additional relief come to these three families! I hope they continue to have the love and support they need to continue God's work.

I will soon be going for my fourth visit to Real Hope For Haiti. I have been volunteering to help their organization for about 3 years now and we will continue to support them and everything they do in the future. They work tirelessly to help children and families in the mountains of Haiti and they are very resourceful. They not only do everything they can to help people in Cazale, but they genuinely love the people they care for. I have been beyond impressed with everyone who runs the Rescue Center and Clinic and all of the staff there, and all the children and patients who's lives have been transformed are the proof of everything that they do.

The Great!

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

Seeing children who are skin and bones and barely alive on one visit and then returning 4 months later to see a healthy, happy, and sometimes even chubby child who has been completely transformed thanks to Medika Mamba, food and care that the Rescue Center and Clinic provide.

Real Hope for Haiti is an awesome organization. They are doing so much for their community of Cazale and the surrounding communities that travel days on foot over mountains to reach them. Licia, Lori and Zach have such a passion for what the do and the people that they are serving. I was down there as a volunteer just after Thanksgiving in 2010. There are many different componets to the work that they do at RHFH. Licia is in charge of the rescue center for children suffering from kwash (malnurishment) and oversee the daily care of 60 children and staff. She does an amazing job, and even though she has to run the business side of it you frequently find her in the middle of it interacting with the children and caring for them, she has a knack to get even the sickest of kids to give her a smile that just warms your heart. Lori is the "rambo" nurse that runs the clinic. Clinic is open 3 days a week and see anywhere from 200 to 300 pts per day!!! Its truely amazing at the set they have. There they do prenatal care, well baby check ups, OB/ Gyne clinc, sutures, wound care, pap smears, HIV testing, Syphilis testing, Chlamyda testing, and Gonnerhea testing, they snip tounge tied kids, and there so much more!! But even as impressed as I was about the medical care these community members receive was the way its received, with compassion. Theres also community education like sewing clasees, literacy classes, and after school tudoring. Every time you open your eyes something is happening around there. In Lori's spare time ( really that was sarcastic cuz shes on the go from 5am till 10 pm everyday) she opened a cholera house to treat the epidemic in that area. That also is an amazing set up. There are 20 something beds, which at times are full, and for pts that are stable with oral rehydration theres the porch of the house, which seems overflowing with another 10 or so pts every day. She has Haitian staff members to help care for the pts and American and Canadian volunteers that come into help, but its truely her baby project. I worked mainly at the cholera house while I was there, and even if she was able to escape down to the clinic for the day to get some work done, she always came up at change of shifts to make sure everything was running smoothly, and was alway a cell phone call away if we needed her or her great knowledge and advice. Then theres Zach, ZAchary Davis..... Lori and Licias dad. I loved spending time with him, and he always had great stories to tell. As he would say his role is to make sure his daughters are happy and have everything they need. My favorite quote from his was " I used to say happy wife happy life, but since my wife is now gone its happy daughters, happy life!" And yes he takes his job seriously. For example Lori needed more soap to hand out at the cholera house. So she put her dad on finding it. Later that day he came back with soap. There was 36 bars in one box.....not bad, but that wasnt the end of it there was 36 boxes as well!!! Zach believes in buying big and that he def. does well.
I have volunteered at many places in Haiti, but no where have I felt so at home. RHFH treats thier volunteers as family and that meant alot to me. When the go to the grocery store they ask u if you want anything special.... When people go to Haiti as missionary's the have the desire to serve others, sometimes while in big organizations this desire can fade over the yrs and turn into almost a business type environmont. This is so so so far from what RHFH is about, they came down with a passion to serve christ and 15 yrs+ later that passion is still as strong as the day when they arrived!!! I love you RHFH and keep doin what you are doing.

I have personally see the great work that they are doing and their commitment to helping others. While I was in Haiti I also visited my friends orphange in Leogane, while there she had a sick baby that required NG feedings. My friend was capable of doin the feedings but she was going home to MN and no1 else at the orphange would be able to care for the child. RHFH volunteered to take in this kid and care for him until my friend was able to return. They didnt ask for money, they did it cuz they cared!!!

I wouldnt change a thing. Except maybe give Lori and Licia a vacation they deserve, even though I know Lori would have a hard time going!!

I was amazed at the work that is done by the missionaries and staff at RHFH. They work in very harsh conditions to heal the sick, injured, and comfort the dying. I was pleased to visit the literacy class where the Haitian staff have the opportunity to learn to read. I enjoyed visiting the seedling area where trees are 'born'. I loved on little babies - and left with a huge burden in my heart to return.

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

seeing my foster daughter come to America to get needed surgery - courtesy of RHFH and MAT. I am happy to receive photos of her again with her family, now healthy and happy.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

create more Rescue Centers and clinics in other underserved parts of Haiti; and thus save many more lives. I know this is a dream of founder Davis Zachary; and I would love to see this become a reality.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
