I visited Healing Hands for Haiti in October, 2010, I was amazed by the work the volunteers and staff were doing in Haiti. I am a Haitian American and was trully moved by the difference that they are making in the country. Haiti is in huge need of rehabilitation and medical help so Healing Hands for Haiti plays an important role in the country.
I recenlty returned from spending 9 days in Haiti (Oct. 2010) This was my second trip with Healing Hands. Healing Hands was well organized with great assignments, secure housing and awesome food. This organization is well run in helping Haiti. I will go again to volunteer with this group.
I spent 9 days in Port-au-Prince with Healing Hands (HHH) in 2007. Everything about my experience was positive - from travel to my service to building relationships with resident and volunteers who enthusiastically serve both disabled clients needing prosthetic applicances and students and staff striving to learn and improve their lives. The goal is for to provide independence and local self-sustaining growth. HHH also works with orphanages to improve the care and well-being of countless disabled children. HHH has enabled change and provided hope for many years. The hard work that led to a well-respected and staffed clinic must not stop. The entire campus was destroyed during the earthquake, donations are needed to rebuild the clinic and the hospital that was ready for ground-breaking at the time of the earthquake. Donations are used wisely and frugally, leveraged with great dedication and sacrifice on the part of both native and global volunteers and staff. The organization's size and culture enables real change and healing.
I worked alongside Healing Hands for Haiti while I was there this year. I was immensely impressed with their professionalism, courtesy, enthusiasm, and dedication to every patient who was treated. It made my experience more worthwhile, and I will be forever thankful for having worked next to such fantastic individuals!
I have been volunteering with Healing Hands for over 9 years. I have been to haiti before and after the Quake. The organization is well organized and makes the trips run as smooth as possible in such a unorganized country as Haiti is. It is very rewarding to be able to go and help treat the people who need Prosthetic devices and care, being able to focus on the outcomes and your specific speciality, while HHH takes care of the housing, travel, and other arrangements. HHH is a great foundation providing a needed service to the disabled people of Haiti taking care of those professionals who chose to come and donate of there time and talents to help with the programs.
In April, 2010 I went down to Haiti with a wonderful group of volunteers organized through HHH (Boston Chapter) and had one of the most exciting and rewarding experiences of my life. Gail Buck met us once we arrived. She was a gracious, energized host. She kept us organized, safe and welcome our entire stay. I think she is one of the most courageous people I have ever met.

I volunteered with Healing Hands for Haiti for 10 days as a physical therapist and made a great impact. There were days of working at a well organized handicap clinic, days working with special needs children and their seating systems, and days of providing education to nursing students. They are organized and efficient and coordinated
My daughter, Renee, lives and works in Haiti at Wings of Hope a home for both physically and mentally handicapped children. I have been there several times when the group of Healing Hands are at Wings of Hope. They are a great bunch of people and do a great job working and helping the handicapped children at Wings of Hope. They work joyfully and inspire the children they are working with.
