VHF was founded in 1999 with a mission to provide competent and compassionate healthcare to the people of southwest Haiti and to empower them with resources to pursue their basic right to health and health education.
Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. The average income per capita for their nearly 10 million people is $250 U.S./year.
This poverty contributes to Haiti's endemic nutritional deficiencies, tuberculosis, typhoid fever, bacterial and protozoal dysenteries, and malaria.
Your donation to Visitation Hospital helps us deliver the healthcare services that lead to better lives and futures for the people of Haiti. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, so your contribution is tax-deductible.
Several times per week, our medical staff presents a morning educational class, where members of the Petite Riviere community can come and learn about various aspects of health and health-related issues. Some of the topics include basic hygiene, hypertension and diabetes management, and prenatal care.
Visitation Clinic is in need of a self-contained incubator unit that provides a controlled heat, humidity and oxygen micro-environment for the isolation and care of premature and low-birth-weight neonates.
You can be a part of helping countless new mothers with your support.
The bulk of our medical services are provided by a full-time, all-Haitian medical and administrative staff. They operate the clinic every weekday and provide routine, low-cost, subsidized healthcare to over 1,000 patients per month.
