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.

Fanderlie was only 5 years old at the time she arrived at our clinic. However, during her first years of life, she had suffered from congenital heart defects from birth, or “holes in her heart,” as her family had been told. She was a candidate for heart surgery, but when Dr. JF examined her, he decided to put her on a drug regimen. After her last CDG test, the results revealed that her heart was healed. A physician in Port au Prince, Dr. Phillie, who was familiar with the child’s case, called Dr. JF in amazement. The news of the child’s healing spread around the town where the clinic is located and the story was highlighted at both radio stations in the area. Fanderlie continues to do well and lives a healthy life.
Michaelle arrived at the Visitation Clinic near death, suffering from diabetes, malnutrition, and liver damage. Nearly two hours from her parents’ home, Michaella stayed with friends in the town of Petite Riviere de Nippes, where the clinic is located, to be near Dr. JF daily. Thanks to Dr. JF and the wonderful staff at Visitation Clinic, she started doing well in a matter of a few months.
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.
