Children in Need: Saving Lives in the Field
 
These children live in Petit-Anse, an extremely impoverished community without electricity or sanitation. The average family exists on less than $2 each day. Petit-Anse does not have a doctor or a nurse and roads are so poor that it is very difficult to reach the nearest medical facility which is only a few miles away.
 
 
HUFH's solution: Our in-country medical staff and volunteer pediatric teams bring care directly to the children of Petit-Anse. The teams see more than 600 patients in a week.
 
 
Our volunteers jump right in and get to work, forging understanding and saving lives.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Help us continue community outreach. $60 pays for a Haitian doctor for one day; $30 for a Haitian nurse.

WALKING A MILE IN ANOTHER'S SHOES

 
These are challenging times.
 
Now more than ever, it is crucial for us to understand what makes each one of us care, what makes us want to reach out to help another human being.
When feelings are running high about families arriving at our borders, we need to understand the conditions people flee so that together we can find humane solutions.
Now more than ever, we must ensure that HUFH's impact, legacy and actions move us towards a better and more compassionate world, one where people can remain in their homes and communities.
 
Our - and Your - Impact: Saving lives in Haiti, helping some of the most vulnerable people in the world.
Our - and Your - Legacy: Healing - Teaching - Supporting life-giving programs that meet the needs of the present generation and pave the way for the future.
Our - and Your - Action: Programs led by Haitians, for Haitians.
 
What makes Hands Up for Haiti missions special? They are truly about understanding and providing care. There is no agenda beyond working together with our Haitian medical staff to deliver lifesaving medical care and clean water to people who have limited access. They are also about mutual respect and building a bridge of understanding between our volunteers and the people they care for. In sum, HUFH supports the Haitian community as it heals itself, providing mentorship and funding.

Now more than ever, we appreciate the support of our donors and our volunteers.
 
Thank you from your Hands Up for Haiti family!
 
Sincerely,
