Foundation for Hope and Health in Haiti (FHHH) is a 501(c) (3) non profit charitable foundation headquartered in New York whose aim is to provide access to medical care to underserved areas in Haiti. FHHH relies on donations from individuals, civic groups, religious organizations, and corporations to achieve its goals of providing services to the poor.
The January 12 2010 earthquake had a devastating affect on the impoverished nation of Haiti. Even prior to the earthquake healthcare statistics were bleak. 40% of the population has no access to basic healthcare. Over half of Haiti’s health services are concentrated in the capital. FHHH aim is to correct this paucity by bringing healthcare where ever it is needed.
FHHH has conducted multiple medical trips in Haiti since the earthquake. Our members provided medical care and medications to over 4000 patients. We distributed school supplies, clothes and food to residents of poor rural areas in Carries, L’Azile, and L’Ile-A-Vache.
FHHH’s aim is to open satellite medical clinics in rural areas where the need is most. Access to and continuity of medical care is a major issue, which we aim to address and rectify with the institution of permanent healthcare facilities in underserved areas.
FHHH’s aim is to extend its support to the community beyond providing healthcare. We will offer social and education support where it is needed. We will collaborate with local, national, and international organizations to enhance community development and improve the quality of life of those who need so much.
FHHH’s aim is to assist in the reconstruction of Haiti by providing healthcare and improving the lives of underserved rural communities.
