History

On January 12, 2010 at 4:53 PM, the island of Haiti was shaken to its core by a 7.0 magnitude earthquake. The pictures from the first 24 hours both saddened and inspired people to action. As the scope of the destruction became apparent, many were called to travel to Haiti to perform relief work.
Six Haitian-American physicians living and practicing in New York felt the need to join the many who went to do relief work in the days following the earthquake. Their aim was to help in any possible way.

They were of different specialties: family practitioner, a cardiologist, a neonatologist, a nephrologist, a pediatric endocrinologist, and an internist/ foot surgeon.

These doctors stumbled on conditions worse than what they would have ever expected and found the healthcare system of the country at the brink of collapse. They witnessed, managed, and cared for a multitude of injuries and medical problems. They saw despair, hope, sadness and the resilience of the Haitian people.

Their experiences lead to their unwavering commitment to correct the inadequacies and paucity of health care available to a large portion of the Haitian population and the need for a long-term commitment

Upon their return to the U.S., Foundation for Hope and Health in Haiti (FHHH) was established.

Since its inception in 2010, what started out as recurrent medical trips evolved into the construction of 2 fully staffed primary care clinics in Carries and Ile a Vaches. In these facilities thousands receive free, quality medical care each year Food, clothes, school supplies, hygiene products, and toys are distributed in our facilities.

Most importantly, FHHH has established and forged solid and productive partnerships with like minded organizations such as Soul of Haiti, Vitamin Angels, Kellogg Foundation, CMMB, AmeriCares, Brother’s Brothers, Forgotten Children of Haiti, Kakok Foundation, Mission of Grace to name a few. We are active in the communities we serve and provide assistance and support to local orphanages and schools.
