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.

HMH is a "Great Nonprofit" because we are continually striving to better our organization. Although we have already accomplished so much, I believe our true work is yet to come. As a board member I am constantly thinking about what direction our work should be taking and how best to help the Haitian people. It is our collaboration with our partners in Haiti that makes us a unique organization and ultimately one that is able to make a lasting difference.

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.

I found HMH by chance when I was asked to help in a fundraiser and am so touched by the stories of the people that have gone to Haiti and hope to one day be there myself to help. It has been an honor to help raise money for an organization in a place where my roots are. This is such a fabulous group and I am truly blessed to have gotten the chance to be part of it.

I support Health Ministries for Haiti, Inc., because I know one of the people in charge of managing the funds and the programming for those kids. I am certain that every penny of my donation goes directly to the children who have such deep need, and that the children are benefitting more and more each day from the work this organization does. It is truly a grass roots ministry, formed by people who have deep faith and huge hearts.

I became a board member of Health Ministries for Haiti in 2009 with the expectation that I would assist with fund raising in the United States. After selecting a child to sponsor at the House of Jesus' Children orphanage in which Health Ministries for Haiti is affliated, I felt an overwhelming need to meet this child. I traveled to Haiti in January, 2010 with HMH and cannot describe what meeting this little girl meant to me. We were in Haiti when the earthquake struck and I saw first hand the positive impact the medical team of Health Ministries for Haiti had on the injured victims of the earthquake. Health Ministries for Haiti is dedicated to the gracious and resilient people of Haiti. I have an unending passion for the children that live in the House of Jesus' Children orphanage and work as coordinator of the sponsorship program that HMH started.

I support the work of HMH because it addresses the root causes of poor health outcomes. They work closely with the orphanage to participate in the children's educational and health care needs. They also provide training for community health workers to learn preventive health education for sustainable and ongoing support. While they travel to Haiti to assess needs, engage in clinic-based activities and develop plans with their Haitian partners, much of their efforts involve fund raising to provide financial assistance for basic needs: food, shelter, healthcare supplies. I feel this model of service delivery can help to empower community members to identify how to best meet their own health care needs.

As a donor, I am thankful for the work Health Ministries for Haiti, Inc. is doing in Haiti. I appreciate feeling connected through the stories they share of the work they're doing to increase social and health equity in partnership with the Haitian citizens. I know that that my donations are also being applied directly to increasing access to healthcare and supporting a sustainable healthcare infrastructure. As a practicing public health nurse, it is wonderful to have this opportunity to support innovative work in global health.

I am a proud mother of a board member for HMH. My daughter first went to Haiti while she was still in nursing school. It had such a profound and enlightening impact on her that she has been back to help four more times, including a trip to help and deliver supplies after the earthquake. She is now a nurse and is able to further use and share her skills in ways that benefit so many. She has developed many close friends and deep bonds both here and in Haiti that will last a lifetime. HMH is a great vehicle to deliver much needed help with an awesome team of unique and caring volunteers.

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 is one of the best organizations that I have been apart of. I have been on several trips to Haiti through other organizations and HMH is by far the best of them all. From the leadeship to the volunteers, the people are truly serving the Haitian people with all of their hearts. I am proud to say that I am serivng as a board member. We continue to grow and implement new strategies to not only help the Haitian people but also to make sure that HMH will be around for the next generation. The more people that get involved and travel to Haiti, the more we can do for them. Travelling to Haiti not only helps them but it changes the lives of the people that volunteer. We continue to strive to make each trip to Haiti better than the one before it so the people that travel with us not only have a great experience but also make a difference in the lives of the people that we serve.

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.
