Review for REAL HOPE FOR HAITI, Elwood, IN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My husband and I just returned from Haiti,and were amazed and humbled by the work of this organization. Located in an extremely poor, rural area, the workers at this clinic labor long hours to serve the community with basic health care and clean water. We can't say enough about the character and integrity that we witnessed, and it was clear that these folks are loved by those that they serve. In a country known for corruption and questionable motives, Real Hope for Haiti is a bright light.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

their honesty and transparency, and making the most of very hard circumstances.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

unbelievably dedicated. I asked one for a "wish list." She said..."I don't know. I haven't time to think about it." And she was off to help another neighbor.

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

fulfill their dream/hope to have a better medical facility, school, and vocational center to train the young people who are the future of Haiti. They could do it with 3 million!

Ways to make it better...

I'd had more time to spend.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

getting the word out about what they are doing so effectively. They have no time for PR, and so rely on word of mouth...and God.

One thing I'd also say is that...

in a country known for it's dysfunction, this group is offering real hope. We support them without reservation.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2009

Role:  General Member of the Public & Went to observe and were so impressed that we've made a commitment to help them buy land to build a better facility.
