Provide medical care to Haitian orphans



This project supports critically ill children in Haiti's orphanages, providing treatment that each child would not otherwise receive. The Red Thread Promise sponsors ill children by funding extensive medical treatment, hospitalizations and providing medications to complete each child's treatment. By intervening at an early age, the children have a better chance of a full recovery from their condition and an improved state of health growing up in the poorest country in the Western hemisphere.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Orphaned children in Haiti are at a disadvantage from the day they are born. With no family to care for them, the lucky ones are institutionalized, while others are put out on the street. When a severe illness or birth defect afflicts the same child, their chances of being treated in their own country are very grave. We provide medical care to these forgotten children, improving their state of health, offering them a better chance at adoption and being matched with a forever family.

How will this project solve this problem?

We recognize that almost 1/3 of all Haitian children die before their fifth birthday; 77 out of every 1000 babies die at birth (13x the rate in the US). Children suffer from many infectious diseases, including HIV/AIDS, cholera, hepatitis A and E, typhoid fever, malaria, and dengue fever to name a few. The Red Thread Promise vows not to forget these children. We seek out and build relationships with orphanages to match critically ill children with donors and provide life-changing medical care.

Potential Long Term Impact

We identify specialists who are able to meet each tiny patient's immediate needs as well as prepare long-term medical treatment strategies for their continued care. We follow through with each customized plan until the sponsored child is adopted or their health has improved to a state where they no longer need our assistance. Our goal is the improved wellness of each child so he or she can grow up healthy and strong, becoming a self-sufficient productive member of society.
