Haiti in our Hands believes that everyone is entitled to a world class level of healthcare. We believe that the people of Chauffard are amongst the most worthy and we endeavour to provide healthcare to them in the form of Medical Missions. To date Haiti in our Hands have conducted five successful missions where many professionally trained doctors and nurses have seen thousands of people from Chauffard. The people of Chauffard suffer from such ailments and conditions as:

  • Malnutrition
  • Intestinal Parasites (worms)
  • High blood pressure
  • Back pain
  • Diabetes
  • Peptic ulcer disease

We believe our efforts have made a massive positive impact and we plan to continue this good work. Sister Anne Marie is our only full time medical worker at Chauffard. She is supported by five volunteers who find themselves continually overworked. There is a dispensary in Chauffard which needs significant improvements. This will become part of the new clinic being built in 2015.
