Spring 2014 Trip Planned!

We are currently scheduling a trip for April 2014 of technical volunteers to travel to Cap- Haitien to assist with water, sanitation and other improvements.

Currently, we have three engineers, a master electrician and a biomedical technician joining local Konbit Sante staff in Haiti.  If you are interested in learning about volunteer opportunities, please contact us directly at volunteer@konbitsante.org/207 347 6733. 

The agenda for this trip is quite extensive.  It includes:

  • Troublehooting design issues for a new health center in Bande du Nord
  • Fixing broken biomedical equipment
  • Conducting general maintenance on hospital sterilizers 
  • Completing an assessment of water services for the entire Justinien University Hospital (JUH)
  • Repairing and improving the three hospital water pumps that provide water for the JUH

The Justinein University Hospital recently moved the primary cholera treatment center ( CTC) for the north to the hospital campus.  This emphasizes the increasing importance of providing water and sanitation services.

We will follow this report with direct testimonials from volunteer participants and photos of our work. In the meantime, please contact us directly with any questions or concerns at:

FINAL REPORT: Change in Shipping and Customs

Dear friends,

Due to changes in clearing customs in Haiti, we are going to suspend this project to help send a container of medical supplies to Haiti.

We have shipped fifteen 40 foot shipping containers to Haiti, and coordinated dozens of other containers and shipments for partners. However, it has become increasingly expensive to clear customs, despite that most of these shipments are directly donated to the Haitian public health system.

We are exploring obtaining clearance for shipments through a grant making agency: if this is successful we will be able to continue to send containers.  

In the meantime, you can continue to support our work by donating equipment and supplies or by learning about our new campaign to Make Births Safe in Haiti.

Campaign launch!

Dear friends,

We have been busy at work launching our campaign around making births safe in northern Haiti.  We have a brand new website explaining all aspects of the campaign and how you can get involved!  Visit Haiti: Make Births Safe

You can also reach us directly now at info@healthybirthing.org.

We have an exciting opportunity starting February 18th where people who support the campaign can enter a sweepstakes to win a trip for 2 to the UK to visit the set and cast of Downton Abbey. See the attached flyer and visit the website for more details.

We encourage you to explore our approach to our work to make births safe in Haiti.  

 

Thank you for your support and please contact us with any questions or concerns.
